Our Story

The Strawberry Field Tavern is located in the Locks Heath retail shopping centre between Southampton and Fareham and close to attractions such as Titchfield Abbey, the coastal area of Hamble (and not far from the beautiful boating waterfront of Warsash).

Formally the Lock Stock and Barrel, the name now reflects the original purpose of the land it stands on. Strawberries picked here were once transported by horse and cart and loaded onto trains at Swanwick station bound for London.  

The pub was built in the mid 1980’s as part of the Locks Heath Centre development, bringing the community together with local shops including a chemist, butchers, travel agents, hardware shop, Post Office, library, community centre and most recently a Costa Coffee and Waitrose supermarket.

Since changing hands to new ownership in December 2015, the Strawberry Field Tavern prides itself on offering you a warm welcome, good food and a large amount and variety of entertainment for its guests including Quiz nights on Tuesday and live music on Friday nights where everyone likes to get up and have a dance!

We cater for functions, parties and wakes and can offer buffet menu’s to suit your requirements.  We also have a nice size patio area where we can hold BBQ’s in the warmer months.
