A family of bars and restaurants specialising in Steak & Lobster, designed to be the perfect place to meet, eat and relax with friends and family.

The Red Lounge family of restaurants are built on their five key beliefs; community spirit, good old fashioned service, great food, superb value and to provide space for customers to enjoy.

“Right from the start the guys at Just Develop It have been really great to work with on our new venture.

Steph Thomas, General Manager


With three existing restaurants in Waterlooville and Portsmouth the RED Group wanted to expand and add a fourth location.

In 2014 the Red Lounge team approached Just Develop It for investment, and after a short negotiation the deal was done.

JDi helped fund the development of an all new steak and lobster house which opened later in the same year and received plenty of positive press.

Red Lounge has experienced excellent growth since its formation only a few years ago and continues to build on it’s impressive reputation for one of the best steak restaurants in the South.



RED. Lounge are a family of restaurants, dedicated to delivering feel good dining experiences in the local community.
