Nice food overlooking the sea. On my list to visit again in 2016. Dogs are allowed seating outside for smokers etc. Good menu choice too and worth the money. Can get busy at times so waiting times should be checked with bar staff.

Booked an overnight stay here using The Price is Wight offer. We had an excellent meal, a lovely quiet, warm room, that you could hear the sea from ! Breakfast was again excellent. Definitely recommend this winter getaway.

Spent a weekend in isle of Wight and found this little gem. Not easy to find, but continue in quest and follow signs. It will be worth it food is excellent and beer also. We had chunky chips and beer battered cod which were delicious.

We enjoyed an evening meal and overnight stay including full english breakfast. The food was fabulous, accommodation very clean and comfortable, warm too which is important in November! The location is out of the way, quiet and the walks and views along the coast in good weather are beautiful. We will stay again. Thank you to all of the staff... More

We had a lovely lunch at this traditional pub overlooking the sea at Forelands near Bembridge. Easy to find; just off the No. 8 bus route. Homemade soups and pies are excellent. Service is great and atmosphere very friendly. Highly recommended.

We didn't stay at the crab and lobster but dropped by for some lunch with a view. The service was second to none and the seafood platters were not only gorgeous but extremely big! You also get a good view out to see if eating outside. Fully recommend.
