About The Wheelwright’s Arms

The Wheelwright’s Arms pub in Havant is part of the Upham Group’s family of distinctive character pubs. In June 2014 we reopened after a £500,000 refurbishment, which brought this much loved 150 year-old pub back to life. All our pubs have been sensitively restored and improved to enhance their individual charm, which is what attracted us to them in the first place.

The Wheelwright’s Arms offers fabulous food and superb real ales, including those from our own Upham Brewery, and we’re delighted by the reception we’ve received from visitors to the area and the people of the locality we serve. We always want to make sure The Wheelwright’s is at the heart of the community – like a good pub should be.

Our pub is conveniently situated on Emsworth Road in Havant, Hampshire and has a large free car park for our guests. We are easily accessible from the main A27 south coast road linking Southampton, Portsmouth and Chichester and just a short drive from the M27 and A3(M). The mainline train station is just a 5 minute walk away.

We are very dog friendly, so why not pop into the Wheelwright’s Arms for a delicious pint or a hearty meal after you’ve taken the dogs on one of the many walks on our doorstep? Check out the Hayling Billy Trail or Langstone Harbour.

We are just a short walk from The Spring Arts and Heritage Centre, a venue for many great music, theatre and comedy events.

We are also close to sporting venues, with Havant & Waterlooville Rugby Club a 20 minute walk and Havant & Waterlooville FC a 25 minute walk away. Goodwood Race Course is just a 20 minute drive away.

Ten of us went for dinner on a Saturday night on one of our friend's recommendation. So glad we did! Busy place but the customer service was excellent and the food was absolutely gorgeous. If you haven't tried it yet, do it, it's definitely worth it! And the manager couldn't be more attentive, you can see he's very passionate and really cares about the place!

We decided to try the Sunday lunch after it had been recommended by a friend. The pub has changed all for the better since my last visit many years ago, very lovely decor and with the staff being so friendly and welcoming I felt at ease straight away! Mains were very well presented and tasted delicious. Very good selection of wines. All in all a very enjoyable few hours! We will return soon, can't wait to try the other dishes on the menu!

Popped in as was driving past to find a lovely setting, friendly helpful staff and on top of that delicious food which was good value for money. Lovely veggie options too, which makes a pleasant change in a pub. Cannot fault the place at all and will definitely visit again soon and recommend it to other people. THE place to go for Sunday lunch!

We booked for the two of us as we know you can have a nice meal in a nice setting with very good service at the Wheelwright’s. If you’re looking for somewhere with a bit of class in Havant, I highly recommend this place.

We've had our wedding at the pub last week and myself and my now husband have been very impressed by the service, the food and in general the hospitality of all the staff. A special mention has to go to David, the assistant manager, who couldn't be any more helpful, from helping to decorate the room, to getting the wedding cakes, taking the guests to the nearby hotel and just making sure the whole day has run smoothly. The food was to die for and everyone absolutely loved it, the buffet was just amazing and so much food it was incredible.
We've had a fantastic time and I just want to say a massive thank you to everyone that worked that day and made our wedding so beautiful.
