Description: Lockslane is an intimate restaurant right in the heart of Bembridge. We source our ingredients from the shops right here in our village and across the Island: vegetables from The Farm Shop, and fresh fish from Captain Stan and Island Foods for meat from Isle of Wight farms. We are intentionally small, concentrating our efforts on providing attentive service and a dynamic menu.

We were recommended to try Lockslane by a friend, and we are so pleased that we did. It has now become a firm favourite and we try to fit in a visit each time we travel to the Island. How nice it is to be remembered each time we book and we always look forward to trying out a different... More

We decided to spend a couple of days on the IOW in Bembridge and because of tripadvisor picked the Lockslane, listed as the #1 restaurant in Bembridge, as our choice for dinner. The restaurant is not large, around 24 covers and is run by Dawn, front of house and Christine as the chef. How only the two of them manage... More

Visited this unassuming little bistro for a half term Sunday lunch, expecting it to be packed out like other roast dinner pubs and restaurants were that day. HOWEVER, we were the lucky ones to share this friendly, professional and secretly tucked away bistro with only a few other guests. No Sunday roasts here, but something much, much more delicious and... More

We dined here for our 24th wedding anniversary this week with our son and what a surprise we had. Nestled in the small village of Bembridge, a favourite holiday destination of ours, this little treasure of a bistro that we had tried to visit before, without success. Our food was really delicious, our compliments to the chef, nice private atmosphere,... More

The welcome is lovely and friendly. The restaurant is small with atmosphere. I 1st went with my mum and boyfriend and all of our meals were excellent. The recommended wine was really great as well. The menu is perfectly varied without too many options. Following this meal we immediately booked a table for when our friends were coming to visit... More

A wonderful intimate dinning experience at the bistro. My husband and I were delighted with each course that was thoughtfully prepared and beautifully presented using fantastic local produce. We highly recommend for a special evening out.

Had been trying to visit Lockslane on our many visits to Bembridge, but we always seemed to be there Monday/Tuesday when it is closed. So, visiting later in the week this time we jumped at the chance and it didn't disappoint. Absolutely superb food and excellent service - totally recommended. We're vegetarian so often struggle to find something different, but... More

This is a real find. Cant believe I haven't heard about it before. Some of the best food on the island - a menu where I wanted to order everything. Friendly patrons - one out front, one in the tiny but immaculate kitchen. The ambiance is the only downside - a small and plain space which doesn't match the wonderful... More

very impressed with the professional presentation, service and comprehensive menu. Only two ladies manage this perfect little bistro, but nothing was lacking. All courses were beautifully cooked. I can recommend the salted caramel chocolate tart without reservation. We will definitely be back.

This bistro is popular and booking is advisable. We ate on the night of The Great British Bake Off Final and the bistro was full. The establishment is very efficiently run by two ladies whose previous experience was cooking for hungry skiers in their chalets.They have been running the Bistro for nearly three years. My partner enjoyed a fragrant broth... More
