Our View

With its prime location on the magnificent marina front at Lower Swanwick, The Navigator’s ambience reflects the strong sea-faring traditions of this area. It’s one owned by the Upham Group, so no surprise to find ales from its own brewery behind the bar. The food ticks all the boxes too, so a sample dinner menu, for example, details pan-fried scallops wrapped in pancetta, crispy chorizo and celeriac purée; herb crusted cod fillet, crushed new potatoes, purple sprouting broccoli and smoked cod roe cream; and braised blade of beef, carrot purée, buttered kale, fondant potato and red wine jus.

About the area

Discover Hampshire

Hampshire’s varied landscape of hills and heaths, downlands and forests, valleys and coast is without rival in southern England. Combine these varied landscapes and terrains with secluded and idyllic villages, complete with thatched and timber-framed cottages and Norman churches, elegant Georgian market towns, historic ports and cities, restored canals and ancient abbeys, forts and castles, and you have a county that is paradise for lovers of the great outdoors.

If you’re a walker, stride out across the high, rolling, chalk downland of the north Hampshire ‘highlands’ with far-reaching views, walk through steep, beech-clad ‘hangers’ close to the Sussex border. Or perhaps take a gentler stroll and meander along peaceful paths through unspoilt river valleys, etched by the sparkling trout streams of the Test, Itchen, Avon and Meon. Alternatively, wander across lonely salt marshes and beside fascinating coastal inlets or, perhaps, explore the beautiful medieval forest and heathland of the New Forest, the jewel in Hampshire’s crown.
