Such a great place. Top marks for service, smiles, ambience and food. This was the first place we dined at when we reached the Isle of Wight as we were staying in Cowes. It is right on the beach. Good choice of cocktails and the food was refined and well presented Not to mention fresh. Highly recommended.

The little Gloucester is a first class place to eat .The menu is good some of which is based on places the owners have visited.You could not ask for a better setting to eat your meal.The staff are very polite and helpful.We have visited little glouster more than once and will continue to do so.

booked as a party of 10, interesting and varied menu. Being a vegetarian always makes life difficult in non dedicated restaurants but here the choices were inventive and when they came both full of flavour and showed a real dedication to the trade. An excellent wine list to choose from with a few wines that I have never seen listed... More

The food was good but not quite as good as they think it is. A touch pleased with itself but a good meal and very good service.

Set overlooking a tranquil spot just outside Cowes - in the summer it must be fabulous. Cool, relaxed and informal but not too casual. Coolly dressed attentive and very friendly staff. It's not the cheapest eat but probably one of the best restaurants on this side of the island. Food is fresh, different and thoroughly delicious. Crab and crayfish cakes,... More

We are lucky enough to be local, so we followed friends advice and treated ourselves to a special Sunday Breakfast. What a treat indeed ! First, the welcoming is so warm that you feel home and cant wait to join your table. The dinning room is vast and inviting. The decorum is unique and makes you feel relaxed and cosy.... More
