Aqualung . left this review about Sir Alec Rose (Lloyds No. 1)

Places like Port Solent don't really float my boat. It's modern and consists of some housing, a marina and an entertainment complex. This Spoons is a part of the entertainment area. As noted below it has two floors with a small bar area on the ground floor and a much larger bar area above. It's a Lloyds according to the JDW directory but there was no obvious sign that it still is. The main upstairs area is a long rectangular room overlooking the marina and with a wooden floor. There is a slightly raised area to the left which is carpeted. On my late Thursday morning visit it seemed that everyone in was eating leaving just me to fly the flag for the daytime brigade.
Each bar has just four hand pumps with the same beers which on my visit were Doom Bore, Goldmark Liquid Gold & Secret Santa and GK Abbot Reserve. I went for the Abbot Reserve (£2.99) which was in good nick. I must admit that a dead manky December day is probably not the best time to visit this place but for what it is I though it was OK. I'd be unlikely to return but that's more to do with the awkward location than the pub itself.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Sir Alec Rose (Lloyds No. 1)

One of many bars and restaurants lining the south-east corner of the Port Solent yacht basin. Quite a small bar at boardwalk level, with four real ales on handpump: Doom Bar and Flack Manor TPA plus the Coach House Three Kings and Hanlon's Goodwill. Much larger bar with same beers upstairs.

Opened in 2001, this two-storey JDW, named after the famous yachtsman, is one of their better outlets in terms of service and quality. It's part of the marina complex but is easily accessible from the shore. The top floor was very crowded, but the lower floor, down at sea level, was quite quiet. The staff seemed a bit thick, but service was efficient and friendly, while the food was well microwaved. Four ales on - I had Australian IPA and Avery Brewing Co's Session Ale, both in excellent condition. I would have no hesitation coming back next time I sail into here.
