We dropped into the Osborne View pub at Hill Head for a coffee and to check out if it might be a good place to take grandma and granddad for lunch.
The pub (originally and old Victorian hotel) has great views of the Solent across to Cowes and has had something of a themed make over in recent years based on the liners and cruise ship history of Southampton.
This great old painting shows what the harbour was like years ago, and frankly apart from the boats and the Hill Head Sailing Club not too different now.
