Hamble Village is a picturesque village in the Hamble Valley and a great spot for enjoying a relaxing afternoon by the water. In the centre of its quaint and cobbled High Street you’ll find the Bugle pub and restaurant, stood proudly and ready to welcome you in.
This grade II listing building enjoys a terraced area perfect for a cold drink on a summers day right by the waterfront, and an interior that offers warm and cosy surroundings, perfect for any time of the year. This classic pub is heaped with tradition with its flagstone walls, wooden rafters and antique floors.
Pride of place in the centre of the building is a large brick built fireplace that not only makes for a real feature of the venue but an atmospheric centrepiece when lit on cold nights. The wooden tables and nautical images that hang on the walls nod to the maritime history found within Hamble Village.
The warmth of the pub is matched by the welcoming efforts of its friendly staff that take attentive care of you throughout your visit and help to portray a home-away-from-home vibe.
The bar is well stocked with speciality rums and local beers to wet your whistle, and the locally sourced fresh produce and seasonal menu means you’re in for a dining treat.
From the start the menu you’ll find some traditional favourites such as Crackling with apply source. Perfectly crispy there’s no better way to get stuck into this than with your hands, perhaps not one for a first date but we guarantee it will leave a smile on your face! For a more delicate starter the Smoked Scottish Salmon with crayfish and horseradish foam kick-start the appetite perfectly and certainly feel in keeping with your nautical surroundings.
For the mains a Spinach Risotto is the ideal choice for vegetarians or for anyone who enjoys a creamy risotto full of flavour, complete with Viola edible flowers this dish tastes as good as it looks.
