My wife and I dropped in for lunch as we were wandering in Cowes.The waitress behaved as if we were an annoyance and interrupting her time off before we even sat down.A different waitress was a little better with the menu and then we waited for 15 minutes just for water.The food was even slower and hardly worth waiting for...

Bad service. Really average food. All packaged frozen stuff that seems to be just heated up. Anti pasto was something shocking worse that what you'd get pre packaged at the supermarket. Highlight was the pre prepared wedges. Coffee was good but if I came back that's all I'd get.

So glad we didn't read the reviews here before going or we would've avoided it. We were looking for some brunch on a cold, rainy Monday and picked this place as it was closest to where we'd parked the car! The staff member who took our order at the counter was friendly and we were told to find a seat... More

We came for lunch with our 3 kids (aged 7, 5 and 3) and although it was nice to sit in the warm and there's an open fire, the food was very average. Kids meal fish and chips good size but fish was either not cooked properly or terrible. I'm sure our meals of pasta & curry of the day... More

We dropped in for a warming coffee and were pleased to be greeted by just as warm staff and a fire to warm our outsides as well. The coffee was OK but not the best ever.

We enjoyed a quick Saturday lunch at Gulliver's, The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was good, roast chicken, fish and chips and antipasto platter. Prices are very reasonable!

Coffee wasn't great tasting,... More

We stopped by for brunch and were not disappointed with our choices. The full breakfast and chicken and corn soup were delicious. In its day the building could have been an old storage barn so there are touches of rustic charm. An open fire added a cosy touch on a rather chilly day.

We ate breakfast on both days of our stay here. Ordered pancakes the 1st day & fell in love with them & the hot choc was to-die-for. Yummy!
