Does anyone know of any other places that are a short/medium run from Lee on Solent that could offer some/all of the above?
A nice pub in an Estuary/river with mooring out front would be ideal - pub lunch and a run back.
Trying to break the wife and young son into boating.. Son loves the crab catching in the harbour, just the better half to please now!
Thanks for any help.
you should start a solent cruise thread or jump on one that's already happening, us local's don't bite. much!
oh and to answer your question in the river hamble you have about 10 pubs with goog grub
cowes east and west you should know that
newport (tide aware) good pubs
newtown creek, good for nature, bbq on beach, yacht club in the corner
yarmouth, good pubs, bbq beach
lymington all of the above, no bbq beach's
colwell bay, good beach, pub on the beach. bbq
that's just in 10 miles west of lee
