Beach huts & beers; introducing the new Brewhouse & Kitchen

November 26th, 2018

Written by:

I’ve been a fan of the Brewhouse & Kitchen ever since they opened their first venue down the Guildhall Walk back in 2012. One of the original homes of Portsmouth Freelancers Meet, the owner of B&K (Simon Bunn) has always supported the community, hosting my first three PubHack events at their flagship pub.

Now they’ve taken over a prime spot in Southsea, the former White Horse pub by Southsea Common, I’m really excited to be returning to the B&K and their huge new venue!

What’s really exciting about the new Brewhouse & Kitchen in Southsea is how it’s geared towards freelancers and those who enjoy working outside of the office regularly, or on occasion. I head down there this evening to speak to the new manager Matt, who is super supportive of our community and excited to host our upcoming Christmas Party.

What’s new?

The huge new venue boasts plenty of beautiful seating areas, as well as an impressive 8 seater table complete with indoor firepit.

The outdoor area has seating for well over 100 people, which will be perfect for sipping an ice cold brew on summers day.

The B&K in Southsea also has decent WiFi, a built in projector and screen, and a large 50″ television hidden in the wall which would be useful for sports, presentations or even gaming.

Beach huts specially for freelancers

Not only is Simon very supportive of the freelancer community, he has put this into action by providing beach huts in the huge garden, complete with heating and power sockets, that can be booked online.

The beach huts can be booked for free for the day, and seat 4-5 people. You can be provided with a lock so you can come and go as you please. I think this is a really brilliant addition and will be a wonderful space to work in either alone or as a group.

Experience it at the PFMeet Christmas Party!
