About The Navigator

The Navigator lies close to the River Hamble and its magnificent marina in Lower Swanwick, near Southampton.

Its restaurant and private dining room, the Chart Room, fully embrace the seafaring traditions of this lovely part of Hampshire. It’s this association that made the area around the River Hamble the ideal location for the filming of hit TV series Howards’ Way.

The Navigator offers a number of smart and comfortable bedrooms, for a relaxing overnight stay, and a number of wonderful places to enjoy delicious local food and drink.

Experience the best of local and seasonal Hampshire produce, including freshly caught fish and other seafood, in our restaurant or meet with friends in the bar for a drink from our carefully selected quality range of beers and wines. You can even sample our own stable of fine Upham Ales, brewed just down the road.

The Chart Room offers the ideal venue for a wedding, family celebration or business event. Our experienced hospitality staff can advise you on all your requirements and are on hand to cater for your every need.

Located near the River Hamble, between Southampton and Portsmouth, The Navigator has plenty to do and see close by – both on and off land. Discover more of our local area here.



 With an abundance of high quality local produce available in Hampshire, as well as access to freshly caught fish and other seafood, The Navigator offers delicious meals packed with locally-sourced ingredients. Our distinct ‘surf and turf’ inspired food is wonderfully complemented by our position against the marina, with a window table giving you a view of the beautiful yachts as you dine.

We’ve also carefully selected a quality range of beers and wines. Let our experienced team help you choose a drink to match your meal or to enjoy on its own as you relax in our bar.

“We always receive attentive service and quality food, but on this day the food really excelled. We had starters and mains as we didn’t want to eat again in the evening. My Sea Bass was absolutely sublime with leeks and tiny brown prawns, with potatoes in a tasty sauce. The steak was also cooked to perfection. We eat out a lot, but this meal was the best in ages!! Well done Upham Brewery and the staff at the Navigator. 5 stars!” Review, Tripadvisor
