About us

About the Victualler Harbourside Bar & Restaurant 

In the late 18th Century, Royal Clarence Marina, then named Royal Clarence Yard, was an important community built for the specific purpose of supplying food and drink, or ‘victualling’ to the ships of the Royal Navy. Housed in splendid purpose-built buildings and including a granary, bakery and mill, Royal Clarence Yard supplied provisions to the Royal Navy in all major conflicts up until its decommissioning in the 1990s.

Royal Clarence Marina has now been transformed into a stunning development of carefully refurbished Grade II listed buildings and contemporary new buildings, creating a vibrant waterside destination that includes bars, restaurants, shops, leisure facilities and a residential community.

Housed in the former bakery at the heart of Royal Clarence Marina, sits the Victualler Harbourside Bar & Restaurant, with its unique waterside setting and its excellent food and fine ales, wines and spirits.

Using only the finest ingredients and locally-sourced produce, we create classic, freshly prepared dishes with our own unique twist and flair, from our selection of bar snacks to our full a la carte restaurant menu.

Enjoy a drink and a meal in the ambience of our friendly and lively bar with its many original features, or relax outside and soak up the beautiful views of the marina and harbour. The bar menu includes light bites and sandwiches, as well as stone baked pizzas and a selection of steaks and burgers from the chargrill.

 Our restaurant is an ideal setting for an intimate dinner, a business lunch or a get together with friends and family. The menu boasts an excellent range of starters, mains and desserts, while on Sundays you can enjoy a traditional roast.

 Offering over 120 premium gins and rums, with Fever Tree and Double Dutch mixers, the Gin Joint is a truly unique experience. Open every Friday and Saturday from 6pm, the Gin Joint is also available for private parties for up to 80 guests.
