Just back from the Isle of Wight and finished off the long weekend with a fantastic lunch at the Little Gloster. With an amazing staff that was extremely proactive and particularly attentive, a menu that is a breath of fresh air on the Isle and a perfect setting particularly kids' friendly, this place is truly recommended. A particular nod to... More

The food is really good, we ate twice, once for a breakfast that was so good we booked for the supper the following evening. Fabulous views out over the Solent. I was less impressed with the wine, there were not many wines under £30, many were £40+ plus and the wine we had (a German rose) was bland and sweet.... More

We booked very late and were fitted in outside on the verandah - fabulous view and attentive staff even provided blankets! Food was excellent - the tasting platter delicious, and the mains to a similar standard. Impressive sized portions for the children's menu - for once their food looked very appealing! Have now booked for breakfast.

Went for dinner last evening. Had high expectations from previous visits but they surpassed them This is a lovely restaurant in a great setting. Wonderful views of the Solent and spectacular sunsets over the new forest. Food was awesome. Crab & crayfish bisque was sublime. My tempura oysters were really good. The noodle salad that accompanied was really good. Very... More

Lovely location and the food was absolutely delicious. We had a sharing platter which was full of well presented and extremely tasty food. They are family friendly and the lager on tap is really good. Would definitely go back.

Breakfast on a rainy Saturday morning. Great experience. The food was beautifully prepared and presented, the young staff most welcoming and efficient, and the restaurant has a light and airy nautical feel. Most recommended.

I went there for lunch on a Sunday. Owner gave an attentive and friendly service. Food is good. Prices are reasonable. Menu is limited. Location is right on the sea front be the pebble beach. Parking is very helpful. Ambience- not much to write home about. Furniture appears utilitarian. Could be made more comfortable. There were bigger parties having lunch.

Every aspect of this restaurant is pleasing. The food is excellent, the staff friendly, the service very good. The patron is ready to to discuss wines at length (always welcome if you are a wine enthusiast) and to make a recommendation. (No, not one of the most expensive on the list.) We paid our first visit on a friend's recomendation... More
