We had lunch here on a very rainy bank holiday - without a reservation - but the friendly staff managed to fit us in after a short wait. The food was very tasty and well presented, and good value. The only disappointment was that we couldn't stay around and come back for dinner, as it was such a cosy and... More

Ate here Saturday 9th August after sending an email asking if the pub was dog friendly, as we were staying nearby for a weeks holiday. After a friendly and prompt reply from Rachel, we had a table booked. We were made very welcome, as were our 2 small dogs, even doggie blankets provided and fresh water for them. Menu amazing...

This is the second or third time we have been here at the Pointer's Inn Newchurch. It's serves the best food ever! The service in my opinion was excellent. The Sunday roast was brilliant. The specials on the board were so good I had a hard time choosing! The desserts were out of this world...try the Strawberry Pavlova....mmmmmm very nice!... More

This place gets really busy, booking is a must for evenings and probably lunchtimes I suspect. I took my family to dine here Friday tea time. Had a table for 4 in the restaurant booked, every table was reserved, a good sign I thought. Once shown to table drinks orders taken and we choose our food, there was a good... More

The menu is this Fuller's pub should be more than ample for most people and is further extended by daily specials. Food is very well prepared, tasty and well presented. A gastropub, without the pretensions and gastropub prices! Recommended.

We booked a table for 7 people at the end of June to celebrate my birthday and were told they only had one available on the covered terrace. It was a cool evening unfortunately with intermittent showers and we were surprised to see that to get to the terrace you had to go out of the pub and across the... More

Me and my boyfriend had had a busy day shopping around Shanklin and were staying in Newchurch so caught the last open top bus into the village and stopped for dinner at the Pointer Inn. We were both seated to an outdoor table on quite a pretty veranda by a woman called Rachel who seemed the only pleasant member of... More

Our party of six was very impressed at the service we received, we all ordered different meals and every one was excellent, the portions were generous and very reasonably priced. this is the second time we have dined there and it will be the first place we head to when we revisit the island.Congratulations to the owners.
