About the Pub

Opened to the public in December 2017, Urban Island's brewery taproom 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 tables and benches, chipboard-backed bench seating with a 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 a number of cask and keykeg ales are offered. Those available are detailed on a board next to 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.

Takeouts of all cask and keg beers currently on tap are available - see website for details.
