Situated in the heart of Hamble, the River Rat has an attractive interior and a beautiful, south-facing English garden. Oak floors, luxurious velvet and linen drapes, a zinc bar top and contemporary-style furniture immediately catch the eye, while outside the terraced green oasis - which can be covered and heated on chillier evenings - is sure to strike you as the perfect place for a celebration.

Stylish and relaxing, River Rat provides the perfect stage for an impressive culinary performance. A dynamic, regularly changing menu features locally sourced, fresh ingredients and, courtesy of the creative head chef, divine dishes such as scallops with fennel and crispy bacon or pan-fried turbot with langoustines, turned potatoes and asparagus and celeriac purée. Milk chocolate and lemongrass mousse with coconut ice cream is bound to float your boat too.

Visitors can also enjoy one of a range of Cuban cigars, perhaps with a fine wine from an impressive, carefully compiled list. Hailing from both the Old and New World, there are bottles to suit all palates and purses - from light and fruity house wines to a Bigotes Bourgogne Blanc, Châteauneuf-du-Pape or an organic wine. You can now purchase a case of your favourite to enjoy at home from the new River Rat wine shop. Whether on business, having a romantic dinner or lunch with friends, The River Rat is great for gastronomes and wine-lovers alike.
