Visited this restaurant on a recent trip to the Isle of Wight. Nice big patio area which would be great when the weather improves. We didn't book but as it was a Monday it was not a problem. We were seated by the young chat that served at the bar. The decor was nice and quite modern but kept the... More

Our arrival was a bit lacklustre, the greeting was business-like and unfriendly. We booked a room facing the beach with glorious views over the Solent. The bedroom was a good size and nicely decorated with plenty of storage space and a very comfy bed and pillows. The bathroom was very tired, the bath enamel was chipped, a floor standing storage...

Brilliant location right on the beach with good walks in either direction. Quiet area at the time we stayed (3rd weekend in April) and even though rooms are above a pub/restaurant we weren't bothered by any noise from downstairs. Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was excellent and we were impressed by the fact that the lady serving us remembered... More

I had heard it went down hill thought might got better. The food is terrible I don't see why they can't serve descent food considering the price. Nice view but there's plenty other restaurants with good view and actual nice food I won't be coming back!

This is our 3rd attempt to visit this restaurant on a sunny day ..... and each time we have left without eating and gobsmacked at how utterly rude and unfriendly the staff are. Our rule is 3 strikes and you're out. We never write a bad trip advisor unless good reason as we believe that everyone can have an off... More

We were recommended this gastro pub. It was thoroughly disappointing on many levels. The service was poor, we were given water glasses with lipstick on, and served by a mardy redhead who was not interested in giving any kind of sevice to us. Cutlery was thrown on the table. One waitress tried to be helpful and recommended a hake dish... More

Stopped here for a spot of lunch. Lovely location right on the main road overlooking the Solent. Sunny patched garden with many seats, but not many parking spaces, however you may find a spot on the main road. The food was a tad on the expensive side, but that said we had a crab baguette and they didn't scrimp on... More

I first visited The Boat House just after it had been converted from what i think was originally called The Battery Arms. The food was real good, the price was spot on and it was a great place to take the children. However I recently visited The Boat House and was utterly flabbergasted by a steak sandwich that hadn't been... More

As we just arrived today for a week in Isle of Wight, we looked on Internet to find a nice place to eat, we found this place which was at the end of our road and decided to give it a go. The place looks very nice, the menu look delicious. We had to wait a while before someone come... More
