The Oast and Squire Portsmouth restaurant Beefeater
Welcome to the Oast and Squire, we’re a comfy pub and steakhouse on the edge of Fareham in Hampshire. Our specialty is top-quality steak grilled to perfection, but we also serve traditional pub classics, light bites and a range of drinks for every occasion. Whether you’re joining us for a family lunch, a romantic dinner or a quiet bite by yourself, we’re here to make your meal out the best it can be.
We’re so lucky to have such an experienced team, some of our team members have been with us for over 25 years! We mix that experience with the energy of our new starters to make a team that works well together, and really cares about serving the best meals for you every time.
With the help of our brilliant guests we raise over £2000 for Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital every year. We also sponsor our local football team and donate to charities in Fareham.
We’re based in a grand, Georgian style building just off the A27 on the edge of Fareham. There’s a lot of history to the Oast and Squire, it’s a really charming, unique building and our guests love it!
Our restaurant is split into a 200-seater dining area and 100-seater bar area. Our dining area has a great mix of quiet booths, big family tables, a large function area and plenty of space. Our bar area is made up of a long galley area that’s perfect for enjoying a drink or two in a comfy setting.
We also have a brilliant outdoor space, with decking, covered benches and space for kids to run around in. Plus, we have a large car park with lots of spaces.
