Just down the river one of our local marinas had a great little coffee shop, it was a take away but there were seats outside and it was a perfect stopping off spot for walkers taking the river path between Warsash and Swanwick.
Back at the start of the season it closed and a new upmarket restaurant opened, and by all accounts it's very good, but not really the sort of place you'd go to for a tea break while anti fouling the boat or out for a stroll with muddy shoes.
Fortunately the operators have figured that they are serving two different markets and the Coffee 8 shop is back open for snacks and drinks.
