Lee-on-the-Solent to welcome new taproom

By Connor Steel

LEE-ON-THE-SOLENT will welcome a brand new business this weekend as “Seafire Taproom” will open its doors on Good Friday; offering visitors the opportunity to enjoy a range of brewed alcoholic drinks down the High Street following the success of similar ventures such as Powder Monkey in Hardway over recent years.

Seafire Taproom was first incorporated on February 3 this year, according to Companies House, and can be found at the address of 126A High Street nearby to Sue Wassall Optometrist.  And it looks likely to pull large crowds from across Gosport at midday on Friday (07/04), where it will serve their 1st pints to the local public.

A sneak peak of drinks include a variety of local and popular brands with more yet to come: the highlights so far including Manmade, Pizza Planet, and Chimes. Eight ‘taps’ will be available for all visitors to choose from alongside multiple wines and spirits whilst a selection of soft drinks should be on sale for those non-drinkers.

Tables and seating will be available for visitors alongside standing spaces, with the venue furthermore being dog friendly. Photographs show a rustic atmosphere inside the taproom including designs from local antique business Henry Paints Furniture such as traditional chairs, bar stools, mirrors, and a rare Victorian cupboard.

Opening daily except for Mondays and Tuesdays; the public can visit the taproom from 12pm until 10pm on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Sundays, and Bank Holidays. This stretches on Fridays and Saturdays to a close time of 11pm, although this current schedule may be slightly changed during the upcoming summer months.

The business can be contacted by emailing info@seafire.uk for any questions, whilst readers can further visit their Facebook or Instagram business profiles for an ongoing selection of photographs and taproom updates.
