We rented a house round the corner from the pub and were very (possibly a tad over-) excited about booking Sunday lunch there. Perhaps our expectations were a little high.

Great place within walking distance of Harbourside View Houseboat. Rosie's homemade crab cakes are a must!

Visited late afternoon for a drink, having already eaten lunch somewhere else. Great ambience, very polite staff. Very good pint of Grolsch, reasonable prices. Many locals in pub, which is always a good sign. We will return to eat, watch this space !!

Must be the best homemade burgers on the Isle of Wight. Excellent friendly young staff. Good atmosphere - especially as you can sit outside and watch the world go by.

We liked this pub so much we ate twice. The food was great (the fishcakes excellant unlike the Crab & Lobster), the service was great. Would recommend for a good honest pub meal

Great pub and atmosphere with very friendly and attentive staff. Sadly the food lets the place down! Ordered fish and chips which was a real let down. Wouldnt choose to go again for a meal.

We ate as a large group on a Saturday night and everything was faultless and I am a very fussy person. A little wait for the food but not unacceptable. Food was superb. Would go again.
