We are located in the historic maritime small town of Emsworth, equidistant  from Portsmouth with its naval heritage and Chichester with its imposing cathedral.

Emsworth Harbourfront is exactly one mile (15-20min. walk) from Jingles.

 At the turn of the last century Emsworth was at the centre of a thriving oyster business.This was until the oysters killed the Bishop of Winchester and several guests at a banquet in 1902! There are plans to restart this industry.


You will be spoilt for choice by the variety of pubs and restaurants.Emsworth has been the scene of the largest independent food festival in the UK until 2007 when it was deemed too successful and replaced with quarterly smaller events.


Emsworth is also famous for it's many owner-run retailers and was placed in the Top 6 towns in the UK for it's independent nature. We are fortunate to have independent outfitters, general stores, butchers, fishmonger and greengrocers in our village centre.
