Situated on the grounds of the beautiful Southsea Castle – which is free to visit! – The Courtyard is a family-run restaurant specialising in rustic, seasonal British food, made using fresh, locally-sourced ingredients. This is the ideal place to bring the kids, or a group of friends, after a busy day exploring. Their menu offers British dishes, including grilled mackerel and hake, battered scampi and ribeye steak. For the vegetarians, they also offer an asparagus and goat’s cheese tart and Mediterranean bruschetta, as well as a variety of their menu options being gluten free. On one of our rare British sunny days, you can enjoy your meal, or a drink, in their sunny courtyard, and soak up the rays.
