Urban Island

About the Pub

Opened to the public in December 2017, Urban Island's brewery tap room is located a short distance from Hilsea station. Surprisingly spacious, the room is divided into three drinking areas, with furniture consisting of a mixture of trestle table and benches, chipboard-backed bench seating with table fashioned from a shipping pallet and cask stools arranged around an oil-drum table. Visitors are surrounded by an array of gleaming, stainless steel Brewing vessels.

The bar counter can be found towards the rear, from where up to 6 cask plus keykeg ales are offered. Those available are detailed on a large chalk board directly above the servery. Outdoor drinking is available in the warmer seasons.

Locally produced real cider is available.

The Brewery is also reachable via a footpath leading from the Hilsea Lines battlements.

Two pint takeouts of all cask & keg beers currently on tap are available.

Because of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak, the taproom is closed but beers can be ordered for delivery via the brewery website.
