A grill with Imagination and Atmosphere
Wow have you ever visited the Gatehouse Grill in the Royal Pier, Southampton – this is definitely a special place with hidden gems to enjoy.
I can see the Head Chef in his open Kitchen and what a menu which is a supporting act to the excellent choice of steaks, Burgers. Not only is this succulent food served in a special waterfront Restaurant you will never experience this place else where along the Solent Coastline.
Eating quality food supported by excellent service you cannot help noticing the wonderful views over the Solent which is like a good story book that has got you hooked.
The largest cruise liner I have ever seen slowly passes whilst enjoying that perfectly cooked medium to rare fillet steak. During the delicious sweet course l watched the busy Isle of White Ferry dock and starts unloading whilst in the opposite direction a huge container ship brings to the UK shores goods from around the world.
The restaurant lights dim, OMG a sunset never seen before followed by the imagination running wild with the different lights in the distance – wonder where they come from?
Having chosen a good value for money wine another discovery is made – The Rum Lounge – what a special relaxing place to finish the evening. Difficult choice to make – 27 rum brands on offer!
Couldn’t leave without a unique cocktail that was beautifully put together by the young barman.
The management and staff clearly enjoyed our company as much as we did theirs – cannot wait to find another night to carry on with this experience in this very special place.0
