We are so very fortunate at Salt Cafe and The Beach Hut Cafe to be nestled in different areas of Portsmouth Harbour and to boast glorious sea views. If the tide is high you can watch the hustle and bustle of boats launching, yachts sailing and paddle boarding or kayaking. At low water, the birdlife is captivating at Wicor Lake and both cafes are pooch friendly and on a coastal footpath by Portchester Castle.
