The number one restaurant on our list when in the IOW however a little disappointed this time. The specials not being part of the menu where simply one main course only which was disappointing. However chef made me a special dish on request which was very nice but not as good as had previously. Maybe head chef had a day... More

Comfortable, quirky and unpretentious, wonderful simple food served with no fuss by delightful staff - it gets no better. The first time we came here, we found it by accident, it having been recommended by the woman in the clothes shop we were in in Cowes!! We just couldn't wait to go back.

We took a walk on a day when the racing was abandoned during Cowes week, and stumbled across this restaurant quite by accident. Lots of disappointed sailors had called to book tables for lunch, but a table was found for us on the lawn outside overlooking the (quiet) Solent. We shared a bottle of white wine and we each had...

Better than OK; not quite Wow. The lemon sole and the confit duck leg were very good but the ribeye steak for two wasn't quite there and apparently was tasty but a bit chewy. Some excellent puddings and a good cheese board, along with a good choice of wines would have pushed a 4.5, but unfortunately that is not possible.... More

We visited the Little Gloster twice for dinner during a 2 week holiday. First time my main course of steak was a bit tough.....and on the 2nd occasion 2 of us had steak and the portion was very small. At £25.00 each we were quite disappointed. The monkfish was also a small portion and again did not seem like a... More

We have now been to little glosters on 5 occasions, twice taking friends which is often when you recommend a restaurant is the downfall. But not here fantastic service, food superb. Reasonably priced for the standard and location.

What a fantastic experience from beginning to end. The service was impeccable. Cocktails were scrummy. Food was outstanding. Ambience was perfect. Almost running out of compliments. Have and will continue to recommend The Little Gloster to friends and family and all.

Wonderful meal in a beautiful spot overlooking the Solent. Service was very good and staff were attentive without being overpowering. Both of us had fish and my baked cod one of the best prepared and beautifully cooked meals I've ever had. Highly recommended.
