Panero Lounge sits proudly on pedestrianised Palmerston Road and it’s got it all: it’s in the centre of Southsea, but only 10 minutes from the seafront; there’s huge floor to ceiling windows across the front that open right up onto an outdoor terrace; there’s a fantastic range of food and drinks (including full kids, gluten free and vegan menus) served in our a lovely big space that stretches back across two floors inside.

We’ve a bookswap, cosy chairs, tassel-y lampshades, big star lights, chandeliers, a big welcome to kids and dogs and we’ve even a very upbeat swimmer on the wall by the bar. Of course.
