We had lunch here. Service was friendly, food was simple fare but good, atmosphere was genial, and the bar was packed at lunch time. Dogs were welcome which might bother some people where food is being served.

Situated close to the sea, this is a lovely place to stay on the Isle of Wight. The room was clean and cosy - the bed was comfortable and breakfast was delicious. The free wifi worked consistently throughout our stay. Although there is no parking onsite, there is a car park close by that is free during the evening and... More
