Five stars every time

I have been here a number of times now and I don't know how anyone could not rate this place five stars every time. Everything is perfect;- the food, the drinks and the service. It is a little on the pricey side, but you sure get what you pay for. Look forward to making special trips to the Isle... read more

Managed to get a table on a very busy Saturday night (advisable to book) for a family celebration and were so glad we did.The young staff were charming and courteous and meet all our requests most professionally. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. My husband said his fillet steak was the best piece of meat he had eaten in... More

We use the Little Gloster for special occasions and surprised at the disappointing reviews as we normally have the steak and can not fault it. Location is stunning and in the past staff have always been friendly and attentive.

What a great place for a spot of lunch - and it really was a fabulous lunch. After the meal we had coffee outside in the deckchairs soaking up the sun and enjoying the views across the Solent.

We went for dinner on a Saturday evening and the restaurant was very busy. When I rang to book Chris the barman suggested we arrive at 7-15pm and he would give us a table with a sea view. We duly arrived on time only to be sat in the middle of the room - I would not have minded if... More

We had a lovely meal here. Beautiful views and the food just about matched it. The sharing platter for 2 on the starters menu was fantastic as was the chowder albeit slightly on the creamy side. The main courses were lovely, my ribeye steak was cooked to perfection. However the sirloin that was also ordered, which was meant to be... More

So my other half and I went here to celebrate a special occasion, as we know this is not the cheapest restaurant in the area. And that is why you go here to celebrate, as the food and service are wonderful. I had the steak and chips, (on a Sunday, so I could have gone Roast, but chose not to)... More

Went here on Saturday for the first time for my birthday. Service and atmosphere are great. The place is beautifully decorated and I love the use of the outside areas with all the quirky seating arrangements. I can honestly say I had the best crab bisque I've ever tasted. Really really good. The rest of our food was fab too... More
