Experience the best of local and seasonal Hampshire produce, including freshly caught fish and other seafood, in our restaurant or meet with friends in the bar for a drink from our carefully selected quality range of beers and wines. You can even sample our own stable of fine Upham Ales, brewed just down the road.

The Chart Room offers the ideal venue for a wedding, family celebration or business event. Our experienced hospitality staff can advise you on all your requirements and are on hand to cater for your every need.

It has become our go to destination for meals with family, friends or just because we can't be bothered to cook! Sunday lunch is particularly good, but we have never been let down by a meal there. Just make sure you leave room for dessert.

My husband and I got married at The Navigator and it was unbelievable. From the moment we booked the date to the morning after the wedding, the staff, could not have helped more. The food is delicious and 1st class. Accommodation was beautiful and all our guests had a good night’s sleep and a great breakfast. We are so grateful and we cannot stop smiling. Service was flawless.

We stayed here before doing a cruise from Southampton. The stay was brilliant, meals very good indeed. One of the best breakfasts I have had in a long time. Brilliant and friendly staff made this a perfect stopover. Excellent value for money!

The Navigator has become a bit of a local for myself and my family. The quality of the food is very good, the atmosphere is relaxed and service has always been very good. The Sunday roasts are a real favourite of ours as they are just exceptional. Quite simply fabulous.
