Join us for our hugely popular Sunday Lunch experience aboard our smallest and most intimate amazing island hotel, Spitbank Fort.

Your delectable four course lunch, consisting of a traditional roast dinner, is served in our charming “Officers Mess” on what was once a Gun Floor but which now boasts great views over the Solent. All our menus are updated seasonally by our talented chefs. Please view our sample menus below:

You’ll also have the opportunity to learn all about our incredible fort during a fully guided tour; discover hidden passageways and step inside an original ‘bolt hole’- a narrow passageway that encircles the fort designed for a quick escape and lined with armour to help strengthen the fort.

Your lunch experience also includes boat transfers to and from the fort; your boat departs Gunwharf Quays at 12noon and returns to Gunwharf Quays at approximately 5pm. Travel time from Gunwharf Quays to Spitbank Fort is approximately 15 minutes.

Our incredible fortresses are the perfect setting to sit back and enjoy an afternoon surrounded by friends, family or loved ones. With plenty to see on board, you certainly won’t be at a loss for what to do.

Dear Guests

As a result of recent Government guidance discouraging mass gatherings and encouraging ‘social distancing’ in order to prevent the spread of Coronavirus, we have taken the difficult decision to temporarily cease trading at Solent Forts. The safety of our guests and crew is and always has been of paramount importance.

As this situation is unprecedented, we are, as yet, unsure when it will be safe to reopen the forts. We are currently concentrating on the displacement of all confirmed bookings which were due to take place over the next 28 days (up to and including Friday 17th April). Bookings beyond this date may also be subject to rebooking. We will be looking at dates beyond 17th April on a fortnightly basis whilst taking into account any further government advice.

You will appreciate the unprecedented nature of the current situation and the volume of customer enquiries we are receiving at this time. We as we are a very small team and we respectfully request that you do not contact the Port Office by phone or in person as this will help our team to process all enquiries as soon as possible. Please channel any other enquiries through our hello@solentforts.com email address.

We are working hard to reschedule as many of the affected bookings as smoothly and efficiently as we can and we are doing everything we can to provide maximum flexibility as the situation around novel coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to evolve.

These procedures apply for all bookings made direct with the venue. If you booked through a third party agency please contact them directly.

Further updates will be provided via our online statement and through our social media channels.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

The Solent Forts Team
