About usat The Canteen

We are a family run waterfront eatery located in the historic Hotwalls Barracks. Run by a fantastic team of staff, we have been lucky enough to be serving the people of Old Portsmouth and beyond since July 2016.

With our enthusiastic team of chefs led by Head Chef Gavin Wight, busy in the kitchen, we offer a delicious brunch & lunch.

And our bountiful servery truly is a feast for the eyes!

The Deckat The Canteen

Our Deck is a must-see in all weathers. Located at the mouth of the harbour, we have the best spot to watch all the goings on in the Solent. Get a front row seat  of the magnificent Queen Elizabeth Aircraft Carrier on her travels, or just enjoy the busy waterway goings on. Ships and boats big and small, pass by within inches of our deck, enjoyed by our customers in the comfort of our cosy blankets, or whilst enjoying a chilled Sauvignon on a hot day!
