Festive Lunch Experience - Midweek


– Return boat transfers from Gunwharf Quays
– Historic Fort Tour
–  Festive three course lunch

Step out of the ordinary and turn your standard festive lunch into an afternoon experience beyond compare at Solent Forts, Amazing Island Hotels. Setting sail from Gunwharf Quays Portsmouth, your experience will start with an exciting boat transfer over to Spitbank Fort.

At an impressive 35,000 square feet, Spitbank Fort is the more intimate of our two operational forts. You’ll have the chance to appreciate the extensive refurbishment work that has enhanced the Fort’s original features, during a guided Fort tour. Discover more about the Fort’s history, witness the breadth and scale of the Fort and learn the significance of each and every room from the lighthouse to the bolthole.

The highlight of your trip aboard Spitbank Fort will of course be your delectable three course Festive Lunch served in our very own ‘Mess Hall’, where cannons once stood to protect our coastline. Our midweek Christmas lunch operate Wednesday – Friday for a limited time only.

Solent Forts Bookings - Update August 2021

As you will be aware the government have stated all restrictions will be lifted in August 2021 but have not guaranteed that restrictions could not be restored later in the year. Whilst this is encouraging for many businesses currently affected by the restrictions it does not change the Forts current position.

The Forts are a unique proposition, and present a lot of logistical challenges, as well as the normal hotel/restaurant operational requirements to meet current regulations. We also need to be aware of our obligation to the Historical significance of our properties and the need to preserve their heritage.

As this situation is unprecedented, we are unsure when it will be safe to reopen, and we will continue to defer a reopening until there is no threat of further restrictions/forced closures and it is safe for both guests and staff, and we will be able to once more offer our guests the best possible experience.

You will appreciate the nature of the current situation and the volume of customer enquiries we are receiving at this time. We are a very small team working on reduced hours and will process all enquiries as soon as possible. Please channel all enquiries through our hello@solentforts.com email address.

Please be advised

We will NOT be taking any new bookings/enquiries or sell any more vouchers at this time.

Guests with existing bookings/vouchers are advised to contact the hello@solentfports.com email box.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
