Yellow Kite Café
2011 saw a major refurbishment for Southsea Castle and the construction of a new café and kitchen, to create a new first-class healthy eating venue to be supplied by Yellow Kite. Yellow Kite is a local social enterprise committed to providing locally-sourced, healthy eating options in Portsmouth, through a network of community cafes and events catering. As well as providing the café for Castle visitors, Yellow Kite will also be contributing to Southsea Castle’s relaunch as a unique events and functions venue, by providing catering for events there.
