We thoroughly enjoyed our mussels and whitebait...but were delighted to see the local fisherman delivering his freshly caught lobster for that evening's menu just as we sat down! Friendly staff and a quaint place.

We arrived before opening and had a beer across the road waiting for them to open at 7:00pm. We took the half lobster - excellent and good value.

As ever Murrays a family run business consistently gives quality menus for our clients over the last 10 years. We always choose Murrays for our corporate lunch stops as it is great food, great location and a family business at a sensible price. Thank you Fran and family again.

Don't let the decor put you off! Yes, it looks like you are walking into a stranger's front room, but I've always been warmly welcomed and looked after. The fish soup starter is a yummy, hot, thick broth with croutons, grated cheese and sour cream on the side to add in to taste. And everytime I've ordered a fish dish... More

Bland and poorly cooked. Shells in crab salad and dry over cooked fish. Both of us left feeling horrible after eating here. Never again

We went as a family, the place needs a total revamp as it looks tired, cluttered and shabby. Even though the place was almost empty, we were rushed by waiting staff to finish. Won't be going back. Overpriced, unimaginative presentation of boring looking food, I could have done better at home.

Took a chance as it was a wet day after seeing this restaurant on Cowes week , really made welcome lovely fish soup, cod and salmon but the deserts are worth a visit alone. Great kids menu, would recommend that you book for evenings although Cowes looks sleepy through the day it comes alive in the evening. Try it ...we... More

I liked the look of this restaurant when walking by so took a chance and popped in. It's a small place so on Fridays and Saturdays I would recommend reserving a table. The menu is quite varied and the staff are nice. The service was a little slow which was surprising as I was there mid week ad it was... More
