A friend told us that the Union has 1/2 price meals on Mondays so decided to try it tonight. Arrived for 'Mad Monday' and were seated in the area away from the bar. The decor, as expected for Cowes, was nautical but some lovely quaint touches around such as the old chairs upholstered in atlas print material. It wasn't very... More

Popped in here with 3 other passengers from a coach trip. What a lovely pub. Attractive, clean, quaint, relaxing - just what we needed as part of our trip to Cowes. Thanks to Simon the barman for his hospitality & welcome. I will return if I go back to the Isle of Wight. Highly recommended.

Food was very tasty. We had a beetroot and cheese burger and chips. Excellent value pub. Menu of burgers and home made pies. The food looked attractive with good size portions. We Sligo had a bottle of house wine £15. Also good value

this was a real surprise, a pub within fishing distance of the water, nautical themed but well appointed comfy bedrooms. The breakfast was great and staff keen to help with our multitude of bikes. No battle to get wifi. Right in town but very quiet at night,

My friends and I were greeted warmly at the pub (which is very cosy), and informed our room wasn't quite ready, so we decided to sit down to lunch. Food was very nice. The hotel rooms have recently been refurbished and they have done a lovely job. We had 4 single beds and plenty of space to move around. Everything... More

Shame it was only the one night. The lass who showed us the room, and took care of our breakfast in the morning was a credit to the place. I hope they are paying her enough, and that one day she can have a foreign holiday.
