Party of four for lunch on a Saturday. Wide variety on menu, with crab and lobster featuring along with small plates for those with a lesser appetite. All food nicely presented and promptly served. You order drinks and mains from the bar, but the waitress very kindly took dessert orders and delivered them to the table. Very clean with beautiful... More

Marvellous location with views over the sea. Room lovely but en suite could do with updating. Would have liked darker/thicker curtains to keep out the light. However, the staff were amazing - we attended a birthday dinner there and some guests were reluctant to leave but there was no sign of resentment from the staff that they were having to... More

We ate here but did not stay here. The hotel restaurant is fairly pricey, £3.30 for a pint of Diet Coke, but the food was nice (we had a cooked breakfast). Was more puzzled though that such a fashionable place didn't have a veggie breakfast alternative and we had to explain to them how to remove the meat items to... More

We stayed here over the weekend as we were going to a wedding locally. I think my friends and I took all the rooms in fact! The pub part is lovely, staff are very friendly & welcoming. We ate lunch there and the food is fresh & very tasty. Onto the B&B, we were there for 2 nights & the... More

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
