Fareham is an attractive market town located on the south coast, on the tip of Portsmouth Habour and close to Southampton. It has a busy commercial centre with shops, cafes, bars and Fareham restaurants and it is perfectly positioned for exploring the coastline and surrounding countryside. Visit lively Gunwharf in nearby Southsea to see the boats entering the harbour as you sip on a cold drink, head to the New Forest for an afternoon of walking or adventure at Go Ape, or visit Portsdown Hill to learn about naval history and see the forts. However you spend your leisure time, make sure you schedule a good meal at one of Fareham's restaurants to refuel.
The south coast is a huge visitor destination and the thriving tourism economy is reflected in the number and range of restaurants in and around Fareham. If you love a great balti, you'll find plenty of Indian and south Asian restaurants offering spicy dishes for all palettes. If American food is more your thing, look out for steak houses and American-themed burger restaurants. There are also a number of excellent gastropubs that are ideal for families, as well as family-owned Italian restaurants that are perfect for a romantic meal for two. Looking for a sociable meal to share with colleagues after work? Why not head to a Chinese restaurant with a generous fixed menu or all-you-can-eat buffet.
Rancho Fareham in the town centre always gets great reviews. It's an Argentinian restaurant serving the finest imported steaks, prepared to perfection. Try the signature lomo de churrasco which is thinly-cut and spiralised beef fillet marinated with fresh herbs and parsley. There are plenty of vegetarian options, too, including sizzling fajitas packed with chargrilled peppers, onions, mushrooms and tomatoes. Another hot favourite is Lysses House Hotel in the town centre. It's an elegant Georgian building with a superb British menu prepared by award-winning chefs using the finest ingredients. Diners recommend the lamb rump with a tarragon and dijon mustard sauce, then hot toffee pudding drenched in fudge sauce for dessert.
Fareham's restaurants cater for all occasions and groups. You'll find English breakfasts and healthy brunches served alongside the freshest coffee, and hearty lunches offered at affordable prices. Look out for afternoon tea offers with scones, tiny sandwiches and cake platters, served with a glass of fizz or a classic pot of tea. Dinners range from budget-friendly set menus at family pub restaurants through to lavish tasting menus at French bistros. Just remember to book your chosen Fareham restaurant in advance with Quandoo to avoid the queues at peak times. Less queueing means more eating, after all!
