Good food and prices

Good food, reasonable prices, friendly staff. Having been ignored at the Mess canteen we opted to eat here and were not disappointed.

Very friendly pub in the centre of Cowes. Good selection of real ales and extensive food menu. Live entertainment was very good too!

Visited here with our friends visiting the island. Food was good and the service too. The only thing i would suggest is extending the range of beers. Nothing local on pump, nothing interesting in bottles. Leffe on keg seemed a good idea, but too strong to drink in pints.
