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

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.
