Punchy modern dishes overlooking the marina

In the busy Shamrock Quay Marina area in the heart of Southampton, this family-run restaurant overlooks the boatyard and the River Itchen. The modern British cooking focuses on simple and bold flavours, and it comes as no surprise that its waterfront position means seafood and fish is high on the kitchen’s list of priorities. A robust starter of pig’s head terrine with apple sauce, sweet and sour apple balls and pork ‘Quavers’ could precede stone bass, fish broth, mixed beans and sea vegetables. Chocolate cake with butterscotch ice cream, dark chocolate and orange sauce is one of the inventive desserts.
