The restaurant has been heavily recruited ahead of the launch including looking for managers, assistant managers, chefs and front and back of house team members with more opportunities still available.

Charles Beer, senior partner, said: ‘We’re thrilled to soon be opening our doors at Port Solent. It’s a great location with a great team in place that are ready to go. We’ve been chatting to a lot of locals on our social media channels and everyone has been so welcoming and excited for us to open – as are we.
