Lucy and Bill

Having met at Rosie’s back in the day, we followed our respective careers in fundraising and banking to The Big Smoke. Soon becoming disillusioned by the rat race, we were tempted back to our seaside roots by the opportunity to take over the running of the already hugely popular Tenth Hole Tearooms. It turns out running your own business isn’t all lie-ins and delegation hey!? After a steep learning curve and 5 years of graft, we won the tender for what is now The Canteen. Another steep learning curve ensued, but we’ve enjoyed every high and low so far.

We stumbled across the site for The Briny whilst house hunting on Rightmove, and despite becoming new parents to the precious Oscar & Molly in addition to everything else, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to snap up this incredible spot on the Southsea coastline. We are very excited about embarking on something new to us and to the people of Portsmouth. Joining forces with the rest of the family to bring together all of our expertise, is a really fun experience and we can’t wait to welcome you all into the fold!
