Myself and my wife and daughter and son and daughter-in-law with our grandchildren had a meal at this pub today and found it very clean and child friendly. They have a nice indoor play area for the little ones and a good menu for kids and adults. The food was very good and reasonably priced. The staff were friendly and... More

Been here a few times. Lots to chose from on the menu. food is nice and they serve good portions. There is a ball pit inside next to the eating area so it's great for kids to be kept occupied.

Really enjoyed our meal at the Chaulkhead. Sea bass was cooked to perfection, great pulled pork burger, delicious crispy stone-baked pizza, amazing puddings. The staff were very friendly, quick service and the children really enjoyed playing in the park, many thanks x

Comfort food and reasonable prices. Large pub with facilities for kids and dog friendly. Would not be averse to going back but there are other, better restaurant/pubs nearby

Our first visit since the Caulkheads was revamped but, although the décor was original, it did not feel comfortable. I ordered at the bar and I had a Sirloin steak while my wife had a mixed grill. I was a bit disappointed with the triple cooked chips but the meals were served quite quickly and the mixed grill looked the... More

Refurbished in 2014. A good old fashioned pub with friendly staff. Good pub grub. A brilliant garden for children and a ball play netted area. Well worth a visit. Two car parks either side of the pub.

We saw the advert in the Island Visitor magazine you get on the ferry. We saw that they were 'family-orientated' so gave them a call. We have three boys between the ages of 2 and 10 and a 6 month old Labrador puppy. The guy on the phone from Caulkheads said that we would be most welcomed. We took the... More

We visit the Isle of Wight at least twice a year to see family and every time we always come here. The service is great with friendly and inviting staff right down to the food, were the chefs know a thing or two, never once have we had a bad meal from here. The menu is small but still easily...
