Most Solent sailors have their favourite off water haunts and this book does a good job of recommending such establishments in popular and out of the way places. I enjoyed reading it and found several of my favourite haunts. The layout is clear and content good generally.

It does suffer from the problem all printed Almanacs and Pilot books have, in that they are out of date as soon as they have been written let alone published. I found one or two places where the establishment has changed hands and names since publication.

However still a good book to browse through on a wild and wet day stuck on your berth planning for the next voyage across the open water to the wild and exotic towns and creeks of the Solent.
