Waitrose, 129 Stoke Road, Gosport PO12 1SD

Waitrose − the hub of Stoke Road Shopping



Welcome to the website of Stoke Road, Gosport

It's not a flash site, but it does the job—and the same could be said of Stoke Road itself

Stoke Road is no modern retail centre, it is a traditional shopping street, through which you can still drive, and park on the road, right outside the shops

Yes, it's a bit higgledy-piggledy but does offer a neat, if not wicked, range of services and the shopping's not bad, in a niche sort of way

Parking is free, both on Stoke Road and in the short stay car parks, which are just a few man-sized footsteps from Stoke Road

So what have we got?

Stoke Road has art, crafts and hobbies, bicycles, leathergoods, luggage, furniture, computers

butchers, fishmongers, washing machines with same day delivery, fitting and removal

prom gowns, bridal wear, flowers, beds, carpets, craft workshops, vaping shop, sports equipment

two fitness centres, one is a 24-hour gym plus classes, right next to Waitrose, and across the road is a ladies only fitness centre

Opposite Waitrose is a tea room for tea, cakes, breakfast, lunch, coffee

and just along the road is a vintage tea room with a 1930s' theme and it's situated next to the 'most prominent building' in the conservation area of Stoke Road

between the two tea rooms, on the same side of the road, is a café also serving breakfast and lunch plus traditional specials such as roast beef dinner, liver & bacon etc

We have Thai, Indian and Italian restaurants

and everything you need for your own Thai & Oriental cooking

next to the Thai food store is Gosport's first micro-pub

On to the services:−

Stoke Road has picture framing, bespoke tailoring, nail bars, footwear repair (so you can drop off your stilettos to have new heels fitted while you have your nails done)

clothing alterations, bike repairs, television repairs, solicitors, barbers, chiropodists, tattooists, computer repairs, estate agents

bridal service, spray tanning, wedding photography, printing and copying, personalised clothing, glass cutting

chiropractors, opticians, pharmacy, sports therapy, acupuncture, Chinese massage, reflexology, TCM—and there's too much to mention here, see the list on the right for more

After we've done what we can for you, the High Street is a short walk or drive away from Stoke Road

If it's clothes and shoes you're after, the High Street has Clarks, New Look, Burtons, Peacocks and more.  There are plenty of eating places, a fishing tackle shop, W H Smith and two vinyl record stores (and there's a great view of Portsmouth Harbour)

Perhaps you need a chandlery, then from the High Street you can drive on round to Mumby Road

You'll know you're in Mumby Road because there's usually a lot of yachts stacked up. Opposite the yachts is a chandlery and there’s another just inside the former entrance to Camper & Nicholsons

Continue along Mumby Road through two sets of traffic lights and you will see the Railway Inn on your left − you will then be in Forton Road, followed by Brockhurst Road

The shops in Forton and Brockhurst are a bit spread out and, like Stoke Road, frayed at the edges. Talking of frayed at the edges, if you’re handy with the sewing machine there’s a haberdashery in Brockhurst and fabric shops in Forton

If you feel the need to get out of Gosport quickly, continue down Brockhurst Road and you will come to the roundabouts at Fort Brockhurst and you can then make your escape on the A32 or through Rowner and Stubbington, but don’t forget the new Brockhurst Gate retail park, just past the Fort and opposite the Premier Inn

Or you could head back to the harbour, get the wind in your hair upstairs on the ferry and have a look around the Spinnaker Tower

and Gosport's Royal Navy submarine museum is just over Haslar Bridge and...

the Explosion museum is t'other side of the Millennium Bridge—other side, that is, when approaching from Mumby Road

Gosport doesn't have John Lewis or Debenhams, so if browsing the big stores is what you need right now then definitely give us a miss, but please keep us in mind the rest of the time, you might find what you've been looking for "all over the place"
