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 a few man-sized footsteps from Stoke Road

where you will find

picture framing, bespoke blinds, bespoke tailoring

repair shops for bicycles, televisions, computers, iPads, iPhones, laptops, musical instruments

solicitors, estate agents, accountants, clothing alterations, barbers, tattoo artists, chiropodists

spray tanning, nail salons, bespoke jewellery, wedding photography, printing and copying, wedding flowers, personalised clothing

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

On to shopping, playing and eating

Stoke Road has arts and crafts, furniture, candlemakers, bicycles, computers, musical instruments

washing machines, tumble dryers, cookers, fridges and freezers

antiques, collectibles, vintage goods and an emporium offering space for sellers

prom dresses, bridal wear, jewellers, florists, music shop, schoolwear and workwear, sportswear and leisurewear

two snooker clubs

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 cafe serving English and Turkish food

and just along the road is a vintage-themed tea room serving all day breakfast, lunch, coffee, tea, cake, and it's situated next to the most 'prominent building' in the conservation area of Stoke Road

betwixt the two above eateries is a cafe also serving breakfast and lunch plus traditional specials such as beef stew and dumplings, liver and bacon

For eating out in the evenings we have Thai, Indian and Italian restaurants

next to the Thai restaurant is a cool micropub and it's in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide 2022

and there's an amazing variety of hot and cold food on tap at the takeaway outlets, daytime and evening till late

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 New Look, Peacocks and more.  There are plenty of places to eat, a fishing tackle shop, Argos and a vinyl record store and there's a great view of Portsmouth Harbour

there's a favourite spot in the Falkland Gardens for a view of the navy's Fleet Flagship HMS Queen Elizabeth and her sister ship when they're back home in the naval base

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 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 and fabric shops in Forton

and a much-loved greengrocers at no. 339

If you feel the need to get out of Gosport quickly

continue along Brockhurst Road and you will arrive at the roundabouts at Fort Brockhurst and you can then make your escape on the A32 or through Rowner and Stubbington

if escaping via Rowner Road, you could turn left at the Newgate Lane roundabout and this will take you to the one and only Hovercraft Museum and the shops at Lee and the only independent bookshop around these parts (the only eclectic indie bookshop)

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 on the south side of Haslar Bridge and...

the Explosion Museum is t'other side of the Millennium Bridge−other side, that is, when approaching from Mumby Road and...

one of the best Gosport views of HMS Queen Elizabeth and HMS Prince of Wales when they're at home and berthed is from the bridge

If browsing the big stores is what you need 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"
