Watering holes of the solent

The Jolly Sailor it is then chaps

This thread could be very informative to one and all perhaps it should go under
the heading Watering holes of the solent to include not only pubs but eny
where that offers value for money including mooring while you visit these venues

How often have you had a meal brought to the table that after removing
the so called side salad to one side you then needed a magnifying glass to see
what was left

Keep um coming

There was a sign saying there's a (small) charge if you stay over a certain period, but we had a look for the harbour master (who wasn't there) and headed to the pub anyway. We were probably there for an hour or so and we watched the harbour master come and go. He'd gone again by the time we got back to the boat (not deliberate). We'd have paid if there was someone there to pay!! Seems to be a similar set up to Town Quay in Cowes.

But with it being a punblic pontoon, there were kinds with fishing rods hanging around. Hmmmm hooks and inflatable boats.....

You must be one of those guys that are always in the right place at the right time

As for the kids on the pontoon you once would have been asked if you
wanted your boat looking arfter sir or skipper depending on your hat
five bob was the going rate then

However those that declined the kind & generous offer returned to find
rather a lot of water in their craft or drifting round the harbour

Although not by Rib this time, I went to another pub which maybe should be included. The Royal Oak at Langstone. Its right on the water front with the Langstone Quay slipway not too far away. At high tide you can dip your toes in the water, whilst supping your pint.

Bucklers hard

Took the Rib out from Crackmore Hard in Southampton over the weekend, and went down the Beaulieu River. I was going to stop off At the Master Builders pub at Bucklers Hard, but looked in the Almanac and it looked like it was 11 quid to moor up on the pontoon there. I decided to give the pub a miss. Can anyone verify if it is really 11 quid to moor off the pontoon.

Dave

It was £8 when I went there with by 6m rib. The pub only serves hot food in the evening so it was either the expensive restraunt or the pre-packed sarnies they sold. Bit crap really. It was a dullish day in September and the place was full. I don't know why they don't do hot food at lunchtime.

I think it is because it is a bit of a hobby pub (hotel) part owned by John Illsley of Dirt Straits fame So they don't need the money
He also owns the George in Yarmouth and the East End arms all of which used to be good pubs and are now shadows of their former selves

If you fancy going a wee bit further a field I can recommend the Ship Inn at Ichenor. There is a drop off jetty & visitors moorings.

Great food and even better Ballards beer

Cheers

There is a water taxi service to run you the short distance. However, it may be worth checking with the Harbour Master to see if the service runs over winter.

Cheers.

Well I posted this thread over three years ago, and actually went up Wootton Creek for the first time on Sunday, and it certainly won't be my last. I didn't get very far up the Creek as the tide wasn't right to explore very far up

But I did stop off at the Sailing clubs pontoon right next to the Ferry, and went into the club for a drink. The club was nice, and no one asked me for any pontoon payment, and no I didn't need to sign in.

Next time I'll definelty go up to the pub at the end of the Creek.

Just remember the tides when going to the Sloop, they fall quite quickly leaving you high and dry.

Went to the Bargemans Rest in Newport IOW yesterday, right at the end of the river, and was able to moor up outside... Luckily it was springs... but I still didn't spend too much time in there just in case...

When I got home I looked at the chart, and I reckon its fine to go right up to Newport +/- 2hrs either side of springs... anyone else had much experience going to Newport, as it looks like it drys out...

You will find the water on spring tides holds for aprox 3 hours in Wootton creek
when it starts to move - move with it
Newport can also hold well if the wind is in the right direction

I keep on going past the Rising Sun at Warsash, in fact I was there Sat night after going up Ashlett Creek, and I have never stopped off there by boat.. can you just tie up on the pontoon next to the slipway? or are you supposed to tie up on the next pontoon down, where the Harbour Masters rib is?

I see there are some signs saying tht you have to go and pay at the Harbour Masters office for mooring your boat there... does anyone know much it is to stop say for an hour and a 1/4? or in fact for any time at all?

finally got to go to the Sloop last weekend at Wootton Creek, nice pub with a carvarly.. you can tie up to the wall, and step up on the ladder to go over the wall... I arrived a bit late, so didn't stay long, as the tide was turning...
A nice quiet creek...and easy to find..

Tied up for the first time at Shalfleet Quay on Wednesday, up Newtown Creek, one of the two ladders is currently broken, and taped up. Got off and walked to the New Inn 10 mins walk away...for a meal and a drink... you've got around 3 hrs at Springs..
