Places For Lunch in the solent

Hi all - new joiner to this forum!

I wanted to see where people recommend going for lunch by RIB in the solent. Ideally somewhere with moorings or safe/shallow anchorage. I am familiar with The Folly Inn and Colwell Bay. Anywhere else people can recommend?

Yarmouth is very popular on here, I've been there the last 2 weekends as it happens! Several good choices there including the Wheatsheaf, George, etc.

I like Lymington as well, easy mooring up at Town Quay or on Dan Bran and plenty of eating options in the town.

Newtown Creek and a walk up to the New Inn at Shalfleet, although unless the tide is exactly right, possibly easiest to leave the RIB on a mooring and dinghy ashore. Or have a BBQ/picnic on the beach at the entrance.

Wootton Creek and the Sloop Inn are good with the right tide, as is Bembridge.

Loads of options for mooring and eating in Portsmouth and Chichester harbours as well.

The Rising Sun pub on the right just before the Harbour Masters office in the river Hamble, The Jolly sailor, further up the Hamble, it has its own pontoon but can gut busy at weekends, watch the tide here as at low it gets a bit shallow.

The Light ship in Haslar Marina overlooking Portsmouth harbour is always good on a sunny day, never had any issues mooring, never found anyone to pay either!!

For a family picnic run the boat up on the sand bank in Langstone Harbour, pure white sand, plan to get there an hour or so before low water and there is no faffing with moving the boat, just wait for the tide to come back in.

On the Hamble, we particularly like Bistro 8 at Universal Marina. Not been for a bit, but great food, eat inside or out - huge fresh pizzas, great Sunday lunches. Call up Universal on Ch80 and they'll usually let you have a free pontoon slot while you eat. Baywatch on the Beach near Bembridge good if you can't get into Bembridge Harbour on the tide and don't mind wading in a bit. If in Newtown Creek walk up a bit to the New Inn at Shalfleet (0.5 mile).

The Hut at Colwell Bay - Drop the anchor and they will come and collect you. Not been myself but a lot of people like it.

Opps, that was the one I meant, Totland bay not Colwell Bay which is just one over.
I was speaking to a lady about the hut the other day, she said used to be great but it now has a lot of "prats coming from Poole to drink too much"
