Tyrrells is a friendly, relaxed theatre café bar serving  simple, but great healthy Hampshire food.  Chef, Jay Geddes, produces stunning fresh dishes with seasonal ingredients from local suppliers that can be mixed and matched or enjoyed on their own.

Jay says “The menu is divided into LAND (meat), SEA (fish) and EARTH (anything grown naturally) with grazing plates for each section and plenty of choices for vegans and vegetarians. SHARE and have fun!”

What Our Customers Are Saying

Don’t just take it from us, let our customers do the talking!

We so enjoyed ourselves on Tuesday Lin, and it was a “mystery” right up until 3pm – well done. I’m so glad I found Solent Events. It’s so much more fun going with other like-minded people & takes the responsibility out of driving.

Dear Lin, Thank you for sending the photographs from ‘Collabro’ at the BIC. We had a lovely first outing with Solent Events. Thanks for all the hard work you put into it.

Linda Hunt

Hi Lin, Just a quick thank you from us both for arranging such a brilliant day yesterday. We had such a lovely time and the hi-light for us was the steam train trip! Looking forward to the next Mystery Tour
