Fine dining, traditional pubs and a history of oyster fishing combine to make Emsworth an enticing destination for food lovers.
The picturesque fishing village of Emsworth, with its narrow streets, Georgian houses and walled gardens, is fast becoming a magnet for food lovers.
In the Middle Ages Emsworth was a busy port, importing wine for the noble classes. Later the village used tidal power to grind flour and also became known for its oyster beds, boat building, rope making and brewing.
Nowadays Emsworth is a foodie heaven, with its tempting pubs, restaurants (including Michelin-starred 36 On the Quay), cafés and a wide selection of shops, many specialising in local food. A monthly Farmers’ market completes the picture.
Pleasure boating is also an attraction in Emsworth, with solar-powered boat trips round Chichester Harbour, along with art galleries and lovely coastal walks offering harbour views. Migrating birds visit the salt marsh on Emsworth’s foreshore and conservation groups are dedicated to protecting the natural environment.
