We had an evening meal here on a Friday en route to another destination on I.of W. We each had different burger/sauce combinations and all were good. Also the chunky chips. Maybe a slight criticism That the side sauces were a bit similar. The atmosphere and decor is pleasant and part way through the meal the piped music changed to... More

Gourmet burgers. I can feel my eyes rolling. So many places claim to have gourmet burgers and they're all the same thing, oversized patties of wet mince stacked high with various toppings similar in quality to the stuff you get in Subway. Served with the bog standard fries of course. The sign claimed these guys were burger connoisseurs and my... More

Me and my partner came here attracted by the deal they had on Mondays and Thursdays (I think) which was any starter, any burger and an ice cream or coffee for £10. We were soon seated at a lovely table decorated with candles. The waitresses/waitors were eager to take our order, which was great customer service although I had barely... More

This calls itself a burger bar but that doesn't cover it. The food is original and so beautifully presented you want to photo it. Its burgers but five star and imaginatively created including vegetarian. Two nights a week Mon/thur there were great value deals ...and live music. You can also sit outside if its sunny and watch the sea at... More

We popped into here on the off-chance just for a drink and a light snack and were very pleasantly surprised at how welcoming it is. The bar staff are extremely efficient and friendly and although we only had a couple of drinks and nachos we would definitely return on our next visit to Ryde.

We were spending a few days on the IOW, and although not staying in Ryde, we did pass through for lunch. We had no idea where to go, and many of the pubs looked like your usual seaside regular pubs, but then we stumbled upon Joe's, in the high street. It looked like a nice, trendy bar / restaurant with... More
