You could also try the Keyhaven Yacht Club. Very friendly, excellent food and a very interesting nav excercise getting to it. Specially useful if you want to shave a few thou off the diameter of your prop. At HW you can try the "short route"

Another pub to add to the list.. the Old Granary at Wareham, where you can tie up at the Quay, and sit in the sun (hopefully), sipping your Pimms, whilst stuffing down some jam and scones. You can also travel another half mile up the river Frome to the bridge.

No they don't charge to moor at the quay, dont forget I went Monday afternoon, so it will probably be different with moire people around at weekends. The water isnt that deep there at low tide, in fact when I was there older kids were swimming off the quay, and were able to just about stand in the middle of the river.

The trip up the river to Wareham is nice and tranquil, and relaxing. It takes approx 20 minutes each way going at max 4 ish knots of course.

There are is a pub right on the quay which also serves food, and snacks, where you can sit outside if you want and watch the world go by. There is also another pub across the parking area which you can also sit outside at, right next to the public loos. Wareham itself is just round the corner, with the usual shops. You can go another 1/2 mile up the river from the Quay until you get to the bridge. It was nice and quiet when I went there... well worth a trip, just for some peace and quiet.

I went up there recently. Nice, yes. Tranquil, yes. Relaxing - well......
although it was highish tide, it was going out. The old depth meter was showing 1.5ft before I thought blow this for a game of soldiers I'm turning around. So I never got to relax or see any of the sights much, too busy looking at the depth guage.

It was Izzy's birthday last week, so we headed up the Hamble to the Jolly Sailor in Bursledon and parked alongside their pontoon. Arrived an hour before high tide, had an excellent lunch and a couple of glasses of wine and then stopped in Hamble Village on the way back for a coffee. Well worth it. Marvellous.

Was it not the jolly sailor that featured in the TV soap Howerds Way a
number of years ago.

I have been meaning to give that one a try all summer
thought it might be a bit on the busy side at the weekends though

Is there much to see in the village or should i keep the wife well away

There are some olde shoppes in Hamble Village - it's quite nice just to wander around. And further up the river, Alladin's cave, the chandlery barge and Deacon's boatyard are walking distance from the Jolly Sailor. They probably wouldn't mind your RIB staying put for an hour if you've just had lunch there.

Well worth a visit.

Yes, the Jolly Sailor was the pub featured in Howards Way. The good thing about the Jolly Sailor are there are lots of benches looking out to the Hamble to sit on and admire the sea/your rib/the other boats coming along.

Anyone know if the Bugle at Hamble is opening up again soon. The pub has been closed for ages, and is on the waterfront.

I can answer my own question here. I opened tonights Boat show preview sold with the Daily Echo, and lo and behold the Bugle at Hamble had a full page spread, saying that the Bugle is now open.

I dont know if there are any charges to moor up at Hamble pontoon for a while and go to the Bugle, anyone know.

You're more than welcome to come over to the Warsash side to moor and swim over to Hamble, when you come back you can have a swift one in the Rising Sun......Serves good food too! Or used to!

Jolly Sailor!
Good Pub but looks a bit dodgy getting up the creek at anything but high tide?

Spitting distance from me Bruce,nice pub but as already said,need top of the tide,lots of smelly black mud if you get caught,dont mistake the inlet for the power station sailing club,its nearer the refinery jetty.
