Watkins & Faux

We're a local family business, and started out life as a market stall at Hampshire Farmers Market, serving delicious home-cooked ready-to-eat savoury treats with an international twist, using natural, locally-sourced ingredients.

We try to stay true to our roots; delivering that same ethos in all our food and we use local, high-welfare, ethical ingredients, packaging & products wherever possible.

Southsea Tennis Club

Cafe / event venue

Opened in May 2013, our flagship cafe/restaurant is located inside the Southsea Tennis Club pavilion on the seafront. We're proud of creating Southsea's most family-friendly cafe: Great freshly-prepared food & coffee, large tables for groups, lots of space for buggies & wheelchairs, a playhouse, kids books, toys, a piano, and comfy chairs & sofas to relax in!

We share the lovely period 1930s pavilion with Southsea Tennis Club so there's always something going on all-year-round. Being so light and airy & spacious makes it a great venue for functions & weddings too.
