Mixing together British cuisine with Mediterranean influences, the menu at the Terrace is filled with grilled meats and fish dishes. Perfect to be enjoyed after a day of making the most of the hotel's spa and pool facilities. The restaurant is also open to non-hotel guests too so you don’t have to miss out.
If you fancy turning your meal into a form of entertainment, the chef’s table gives you the chance to pick your ingredients and watch them be cooked right in front of you. If you prefer the peace and quiet of your own table, you can pick from a wide range of other dishes available. Try the Spanish-style mussels – with chorizo and spicy tomato sauce, for instance. The rotisserie, paprika-rubbed chicken is another great option to go for. If it’s sunny, enjoy your meal on the outdoor terrace.
Visiting on a Sunday? The roast lunch offers a selection of British meats with all the trimmings. The homemade beef burger with a brioche bun or penne pasta are also available on Sundays. Desserts to finish off your roast include poached pears and a warm chocolate tart. During the rest of the week you can expect to see seared pineapple with chilli syrup and vegan chocolate and cherry cheesecake on the dessert menu.
Depending on how long you decide to stay at the Solent Hotel, you may get some time in-between country walks and spa treatments to enjoy its traditional afternoon tea. Expect finger sandwiches, savoury tarts and macarons to accompany your cream tea. Try the gentleman’s afternoon tea if you are more into your savoury dishes (this one is accompanied by ale instead of tea).
You are sure to never go hungry while staying at this hotel. With so many locally sourced and quality dishes available at all times of day you can enjoy an evening meal in the cosy restaurant or a fancy afternoon tea after a morning at the pool. If you’re staying for more than a night you can enjoy all the meals they have on offer.
