The Haven

King Saltern Road, Lymington SO41 3QD

With several million pounds' worth of parked yachts all around it, The Haven is the obvious retreat for sailors preparing for their next venture into the neighbouring Solent. There's a great terrace that wraps round the restaurant-bar area, with comfy sofas, sun umbrellas and fine views over the water. Inside is a small nautical-themed bar and a larger dining area with big picture windows. The bar is good for drinks, cocktails, coffees and teas, as well as very tasty – if pricey – sandwiches, while the restaurant serves very tempting fresh fish, daily specials and grills. Check the website for themed evenings which include frequent live music. Dogs welcome on the outside decking.
