Welcome to Grand Café, a venue steeped in history located within a Grade II listed building, South Western House. Once Southampton's grandest hotel, it was used by first class passengers of the Titanic, history dates back to 1865.

Just a moment from Oxford Street, and centrally located to the City's Docks and Shopping Centres, Grand Café is the perfect place to enjoy light lunches and early dinners in our informal bistro. The Grand Café Restaurant, designed to be bursting with an eclectic mix of classic British styles and elaborate flamboyance, offers an exciting dining area and relaxed atmosphere day or night.

As you will probably be aware there is much history attached to the site itself and the people who visited it at various times. The building is Grade II listed, and as such a great deal of care has been taken to ensure that the conversion reflects the architectural status it holds.

The building began life as the South Western Hotel, designed by John Norton, opening its doors in 1872. The hotel served many passengers using the London & South Western Railway. It has a long frontage on Canute Road and a shorter one to Terminus Terrace.

The design was heavily influenced by the French Renaissance, and laid on with a heavy hand. The windows are elaborately framed and many of then fronted with little balconies with twirly ironwork.
