Welcome to The Deck Café!

We are absolutely full to overflowing for Mothers' Day.

If you're not already booked in, then we're so sorry but for your sake we won't be able to make space for you. We want you to love your time at The Deck, and we won't have you visit unless we are free to serve you in the way we want to and that you deserve. What about coming to see us in the week instead, so that your Mother's 'Day' lasts that little bit longer?

We wish all Mothers a very happy day, and thank you for your hard work every day of the year.

Located within Emsworth Yacht Harbour at the top of beautiful Chichester Harbour, The Deck offers a contemporary, comfortable bistro ambience on the upper level of the central marina building with an indoor restaurant and an outdoor deck area overlooking the yachts and the harbour.


Opening Hours

The Deck is open year round, seven days a week – for breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea.

Monday to Friday – 9am-5pm (4pm in winter season)
Saturday & Sunday – 9am-5.30pm (4.30pm in winter season)

During the colder, darker months the Deck offers Winter Warmers every Thursday and Friday evening where for £10 you can have a filling traditional main meal with a glass of wine or beer.  Then all year round, Saturday evenings at the Deck offer an exciting A la Carte Menu from 6.30pm to 10pm. Covers are limited to 54 inside and 24 on the outside deck (when it’s warm enough).



The lunch menu features fresh soups (the Deck’s Mussels are renowned!); daily specials with a focus on seafood items and salads; irresistible chef’s desserts; and a wide selection on all day snacks such as quiche, sausage rolls, sandwiches, homemade cakes and so much more.  All our food is prepared and cooked fresh on site by our resident chefs and offers you seasonal specialities throughout the year.  See our Menus to decide your preference before you arrive and become distracted by the views.

The Deck Café is licensed and offers an excellent selection of hand-picked wines and beers to enjoy with your meal as well as teas, coffees and soft drinks.

Covers are limited to 54 inside, a further 24 outside ‘on the Deck’, and up to 16 on the ‘Lower Deck’ outside whenever weather allows, so table bookings are advisable.

The Deck can be hired for private meetings and special events, please contact us for further information.

The Deck also welcomes our canine friends with a rest area and watery refreshments at the Lower Deck on the ground floor.  Dogs are welcome to join you when dining outside on the Deck too.
