A long time after the event memories of a lazy June lunch still bring back a smile. The danger of a trendy seaside foodie venue is that it burns bright for a season and then the founders move on to develop something new. The multi year glowing reviews indicate the Winking Prawn is maintaining standards and has staying power. We... More

We walked to the Winking Prawn from the South Sands Hotel. It is the perfect distance both before and after supper. A nice alternative for a delicious casual meal. Lovely staff and lots of foam shrimps for the coat pocket on the way home!

Fantastic location near to South Sands with eating either inside or out..we were there half-term (October) so inside. Very Martha's Vineyard decor...beach themed. Food great, service good although we did eat at 6.00 (4yr old granson) who also thoroughly enjoyed a plate of 10 large prawns. Close to town and good walk back to town if your feeling fit!

We ordered our hot drinks from the bar, chose our table and placed our food order. I had the full English buffet with scrambled eggs and... More

Casual, beach style diner / café. Great staff, fun atmosphere and very good food. Burgers, pasta etc and of course, super seafood. Perfect for families. Right on the beach with parking. A must.

It's always tricky to get a table. Today we shared a table with another family of 3. This was after a walk around the restaurant trying to find an empty table. But being half term it's no surprise to be busy. ..children seem to love this place. It's helped by books dressing up box and colouring books etc. You can... More
