Stunning location, superb roast beef

When I suggested going out for Sunday lunch, my son replied in a flash: Roast beef at the Little Gloster! Fortunately we were able to book at short notice and the helpful lady asked if we'd like the kitchen to save some roast meat for us. We sat down at 2.45 to the perfect Sunday roast.

This place is utterly fabulous and I don't know why I am even reviewing it as I am scared that it will get overrun and we won't be able to get in again! Everything about the place is superb and ticks all available boxes, namely.... Location and view: tick Room: big tick. It's a lovely space, beautifully done Greeting (both... More

We had a fantastic meal at the Little Gloster about four years ago and we said we'd have to go back, I don't think either of us thought it would be this long before we did. As before the service was spot on and the food excellent and there were also plenty of gluten free options for my partner. We... More

What a lovely place. We went for dinner here and We had the rib eye steak which was exceptional. All the meals were absolutely delicious. The atmosphere is relaxed and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The views are incredible and we will be visiting again.

Beautiful sunset the night we visited, a reward for filthy weather in Cowes Week? Delicious home-cured Gravadlax with nutty spelt toast and a chunky chowder, bursting with fresh seafood made great starters. My crab and frites looked and tasted so good, as did the sea bass with fresh peas, and the fish of the day, plaice with Anya potatoes. Just... More

We dined twice within four days as the first visit was so good. Simple Scandi inspired decor - the owner is part Danish - with food to match. We could not fault the cooking for either the dinner or the lunch menu. The wine list complements the menus. Wonderful service and the bonus is seeing the spectacular sunset over Bucklers... More

Attended here for Cowes Firework night for the first time. The food was excellent and faultless. However the hurried service. 2 hour turn around (which wasn't made clear at time of booking) and the overall price is based on the overall score. Sadly this is nice restaurant trying too hard to be a pricy London restaurant without pulling off the... More

The location is breath taking. We were there in the evening and the sunset was to die for! They are located right on the waters edge and this is probably one of the best locations on the island. The service was amazing, we were delayed (outside of our control) and the staff were so accommodating, despite their rule of last... More

Our daughter very kindly sent my wife and I to the Little Gloster as a belated birthday present for me. Well - it was worth waiting for. I remember that a Texas millionaire once told me, "The best is rarely ever good enough." This was! It would be impossible to fault this restaurant. Location - idyllic, service - just right... More
