CUSTOMERS can pay what they like for dinner at a pub’s charity event.

The Navigator, in Lower Swanwick, near Fareham, is holding the occasion on July 15 to raise money for Cash for Kids, which supports disabled and disadvantaged children.

Visitors can pick food from the pub’s menu and decide how much they should pay.

Profits will then be given to the charity, which awards grants to organisations to help them undertake projects and new initiatives, or to ensure services can continue.

Dishes available on the night include; beetroot and Rosary goats cheese tarte tatin, bacon and sage wrapped pork loin and an 8oz rib eye steak.

Drinks are not included.

The event starts at 6pm and visitors are recommended to book a table in advance.

Meanwhile, pub landlords highlighted the need for parking issues in Southsea to be addressed at the latest meeting of the Albert Road Pub Watch.

Barry Kewell, landlord of the Northcote Hotel and pub watch chairman, told council representatives he wasn’t happy with new restrictions stipulating motorists can’t park in his area between 5pm and 7pm every day unless they have a permit.

He believes it has affected his early evening trade and all surrounding pubs are suffering.

He now wants to meet Cllr Ken Ellcome, the council’s cabinet member for traffic and transport, to further address the issue as he was unable to attend the watch meeting at the Northcote Hotel.
