Lovely view, good food

This was such a surprise! We arrived in Hayling Island for a quick look round before going on to Portsmouth, but found this pub and stayed on the island all day. The staff were great, the food was very good and the views from the light and airy premises are stunning. There's plenty of seating... read more

Went today with my other half and mother. Was expecting to order the wonderous sharing seafood and chorizo paella for 2 - which has been gorgeous the last few times we have ordered it. But ALAS!! A new menu has been published and it is really disappointing. No reason as to why it had been taken off?! Had the mussels... More

Just finished a lovely meal here. Views spectacular. Staff really friendly and helpful. Food superb and really good portions. You definitely won't go hungry. The atmosphere was relaxed and chilled for Saturday evening. Well done guys.

My sister and I came here for a girls night out. There was quite a long wait for food, which was really quite average but enjoyable. Nothing special but also nothing terrible. Very nice setting on the beach with great views.

We have been visiting our holiday home on Hayling Island for over 5 years now and feel a little silly leaving it so long to visit IOTB. Even if you weren't going to eat, a drink with the 180* view of the coastline would be worth the visit. Fortunately the fresh and homemade food was also very enjoyable. 1 star... More

Visited the IOTB on many occasions and sad to say that I won't be rushing back. The service at the bar at busy times has always been a bone of contention - lots of staff on a rainy dull Saturday in November or no staff on a sunny Saturday in May?? The food has always been "ok" but they have... More

A group of us went for a friends Birthday, we set in the restaurant side which meant we had waiter service, although the bar was very busy we received excellent service, our meals were tasty and well cooked, and the cost was very reasonable. We have never had any problems here, the staff work extremely hard, if you are making... More

Booked a table for four after looking at the website. Turned up with two elderly frail relatives only to find the only access to the bar, restaurant and male toilets is via a steep flight of stairs. Climbing this was well beyond the capabilities of our relatives. This serious problem does not appear to be mentioned on the web site... More

Yesterday Carol and I visited Hayling Island near Portsmouth and had lunch at the Inn on the Beach. We were with my brother Julian and Bev. It was a really good meal and I hope the photo attachments show it well. We sat on the verandah which was like a greenhouse and to us South African visitors lovely and warm... More
