Amazing Food

We were recommended to come here by our Hotel and we’re so glad we did. The building is really nice and the decor is fantastic. Lovely menu with even a section for dogs food which is a lovely touch.

We had ‘The Banger’ for lunch and it was the best sausage sandwich we’ve ever had!! Soooo tasty and excellent value for money.

Can’t wait to come back next time we’re in Southampton!

Wedding Reception

We attended a wedding reception here and it was fantastic. Great staff, great service and delicious food. A good time was had by all. It is a very popular place and there were lots of people sitting outside enjoying the sunshine and the homebrew beer. We highly recommend the Dancing Man Brewery, probably best to book for a meal as it does get busy.

Southampton’s best venue

We have held our post Boat Show event for the past 4 years at The Dancing Man. We have over a hundred guests attending every September, we can only but heap praise on these guys. The buffet has always been one of the best that our clients have seen and tasted. Word has leaked out and the event gets bigger every year. Darren Fulford Finance Director Radcliffe & Co.

PS – What a friendly and professional gang that run the place too. WELL DONE!

Did we mention we are good with allergies?

WOW, What a night!

“I cannot explain how amazing that experience was, to be able to sit down and know I could eat safely without all the anxiety and difficulty (and sometimes embarrassment) of trying to explain my limitations to the wait staff and then trying to find something safe. I could just enjoy my company and the venue (which was absolutely wonderful) without worrying about a thing!! And that’s entirely thanks to your help. So I cannot thank you enough!

Thank you for taking the time to come over and say hello! All the other staff were excellent, coming over to find me and all were absolutely on top of the situation!
