Lovely roast dinners, but you need to ask for it to be served on hot plates. It’s not really a drinking pub, mainly set out as a restaurant. Sorbet is gorgeous, but they’re a bit skimpy on the portion.More

Description
The Wheelwright's Arms offers fabulous food and superb real ales, including those from our own Upham Brewery. We are very dog friendly and love to welcome walkers in that have been out exploring the local countryside and coastline. Our pub is conveniently situated on Emsworth Road in Havant, Hampshire and has a large free car park for our guests. We are easily accessible from the main A27 south coast road linking Southampton, Portsmouth and Chichester and just a short drive from the M27 and A3(M). We are just a short walk from The Spring Arts and Heritage Centre, venue for many great music, theatre and comedy events. Goodwood Race Course is just a 20 minute drive away.
