Welcome to River Rat

Wine Bar × G&T SPECIALIST × TAPAS Bar × European restaurant

Located in the heart of the picturesque village of Hamble, the River Rat Cellar & Kitchen invites you to enjoy our high quality food, fine wines and specialist gins in a relaxed and friendly setting.


The River Rat Cellar & Kitchen is a family run bar / restaurant, offering a unique evening experience in Hamble. 

Whether you are looking for a special occasion dinner, or a tapas dinner with friends (perhaps after messing about on the river), you'll find a warm welcome at the River Rat.

Within the understated exterior is a stylish wine and G&T bar, serving a selection of tapas dishes. Upstairs offers a contemporary bistro style restaurant, whilst the beautiful garden and popular heated ‘huts’ provide a year-round al-fresco dining experience. 

Offering modern British and European cuisine, our A La Carte menu is beautifully presented and prepared with care by our highly acclaimed head chef.
