Having called the day before to book a table for 7 at 12.30 for a birthday party we arrive to find a table for four had been put in front of a pew type seat, as one of our party was a child we duly sat them on this with 2 other adults realising quite quickly that is was going... More

Great for a summers afternoon or evening, sitting on the raised terrace looking out at the sea, the passing ships, and the lights at night. And in the winter, it's nice and cosy inside. Good food and a great wine list. Friendly staff, with a good knowledge of wine. I really like this place. The only criticism is the gents... More

Seeing as we decided to travel from Bristol to the Isle of Wight at extreme short notice and, just because we could, we needed immediate accommodation upon our arrival. Finding this place on lastminute.com we decided it suited our needs the best given we had two adults- one pregnant, the other disabled due to a motorbike crash and a child... More

Smart pub with rooms overlooking the sea. Well appointed room and excellent breakfast. Would recommend a sea view room (room 404 we stayed in). Plenty of parking and friendly staff. Only negatives no shower cap or face flannel and only one small shower gel.

Had a good evening meal in this pub. Staff very attentive. We were put on a table right at the back but other than that no complaints. Great location. We did book but not sure that U.S. a must at this time of year.

We stayed in Seaview for the October half term week so the location of The Boat House was perfect, only 0.5 miles from our cottage! We ate here 3 times, all in the evening, twice as a family with 2 parents, 2 boys (aged 8 and 11) and 2 grandparents, and once just as a couple (good old grandparents!) which... More

The offer of two for one at any of the group pubs is too good to miss, three courses that taste good and portions are excellent. HOWEVER having enjoyed a fantastic meal with my partner at The Boathouse we took some friends down for a "two for one", the main course was not as tasty as the previous meal so... More

We went there whilst staying in Seaview and enjoyed the food, we found the staff to be welcoming and efficient and enjoyed its proximity to the beach. Surprised by one or two of the reviews because we had a good experience.

Thoroughly enjoyed the food. The service was excellent and a big thank you to Carol for fitting us in at short notice with a perfectly situated table. I had the vegetarian option which was pleasantly unique and not manufactured. Adored the Dads Army figures in the garden!

This is at the end of the day a walk in pub that sells food. That is of course if you wish to part with £4.90 for a pint of lager or £5.20 for a bottle of koppaburg cider. The kitchen will mysteriously close if they don't like the 'look' of you in the hope you will go away and... More
