STAFF are ready to serve a cup of tea and slice of cake at a new cafe, which has opened in Southsea Castle.
The castle, which sits close to the seafront in Southsea, opened its Yellow Kite cafe on Saturday.
The western bailey has a 60-seat cafe, which was visited by customers.
And now people will no longer have to pay to enter the castle.
Stephen Baily, Portsmouth City Council’s head of culture and leisure, said: ‘The opening of the new cafe at Southsea Castle was well received and the food and drink offer was really good.
‘I heard many positive comments from visitors and am confident that providing free access to a previously chargeable attraction will be really well received over the summer.
‘I hope many people take the opportunity to visit this impressive landmark and of course try the refreshments at the new cafe.’
The cafe has been funded by the Healthy Towns initiative.
