We arrived at around 6pm worn out as we had been working in London that day, walking through the door it felt like home, very warm atmosphere with friendly locals and greeted by Simon behind the bar who showed us to our lovely room. About 5 minutes later we were at the bar for a cheeky pint or 5. If... More

We stayed here and had a small party for my mum's birthday. The team working there Paul, Jodie and Simon were friendly, enthusiastic, helpful and made us very welcome. The chef made us a great buffet of home made chilli and veggie curry with all the accompaniments that everyone really enjoyed. Breakfasts are big and also delicious. The rooms are... More

I travelled over to Cowes on impulse! I have always felt that as a lady travelling alone, staying in a pub may be difficult! I was so wrong, I was made welcome from the moment I stepped over the threshold! Simon was such a nice guy, helped me with luggage, sorted out some confusion with my booking and that was... More

Bedrooms a bit on the small side but surprisingly quiet as it was over a very busy bar. Xmas lunch was excellent , very well done to the cook who managed 50 lunches almost... More

A fabulous location in the centre of Cowes, close to the seafront promenade and shops. It's a lovely old local-type pub with friendly and helpful staff, and a buzzy, cheery atmosphere in the bar area. The accommodation is very good: rooms are modern and clean, and apparently they were recently refurbished and soundproofed so even a room over the bar... More

After we had a lovely lunch here a few weeks ago, so I booked for a one night stay. We had the small double and even with our belgian shepherd dog with us it was excellent. No noise from the pub at all, room is very comfortable and lovely and warm, there is a separate entrance so no need to... More
