The View Bar sits in 146 Acres of spectacular surroundings at the heart of Southampton Sports Centre. Enjoy The View and all that The sports centre has to offer, a coffee, light bite, snack or scrumptious home cooked dinner.
We are open all day every day and boast a large function room, perfect for parties, weddings, business meetings and conferences. Fully serviced with sound systems, projectors, phone line and catering.
We’re a family run bar, we wanted somewhere that was close to Southampton, but with lots of ground in which families could enjoy time together, without having to go too far from home, with parking and activities for all. We wanted to create a place that everyone could use and enjoy, a place that offered tasty home cooked food, great drinks, coffees light bites and a warm welcoming atmosphere.
After a year of searching and another year of negotiations, we finally got hold of the keys and transformed the tired old Sporting View Pub, with its ancient decor and decades of grime, into the sparkling, new, beautifully restored “View bar And Bistro” you see today.
Why not come and take a look, we have free parking and hundreds of acres of land for you to explore, with off road walks that reach right into North Baddesly, woodlands to explore, Geocaching, Dry Ski Slopes, cycle routes, court sports, team games, kids parks and so much more.
