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 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. as much as we would like to open them sooner, there is a small chance of late Summer 2020 depending on Coronavirus regulations however it may not be before Spring 2021.

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 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 or sell any more vouchers during the current Coronavirus crisis.

Guests with existing bookings are advised that their deposit will be held pending a rebooking when the forts reopen – they do not have to commit to a date at this time, their credit will remain valid with us.

If you booked through a third party agency please contact them directly.

Despite government changes to restrictions (July4th) it is still not possible to operate the Forts due to their unique requirements in both transportation and sanitisation requirements. 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
