Really nice looking bar/restaurant in a prime area of Union Street Ryde. But what sort of manager/owner even owns, let alone threatens to use a flick knife on people in such a usually peaceful place such as Ryde? The staff are nice but the owner is psychotic. Should they be employing people and can you trust the hygiene rating?

I believe the management / owners put it out of its misery - the place looks very closed now. It's a pity, because it is in a good location and could really be a great bar/restaurant.

We have visited this place many many times over 16 years of living on the Isle of Wight but have never been so disappointed as we were on Bank Holiday Monday. It was dirty, run down in every area. Will never visit again. No wonder it was empty!

A group of 9 of went in for lunch on bank holiday Monday. It was fairly basic food, not awful but not great either. The worst thing was the cleanliness of everything. Sticky tables and generally grubby, but the worst thing was when the chef came into the bar. Very grubby looking and the greyest filthiest chefs whites I have... More

Fairly quiet day and few people inside - walked in around 19:00, sat down on one of the many free tables (in clear sight of the bar staff). Menu was on the table, I read it, held it in my hand for a while, put it down, waited, made a phone call, and left .. and it all only took... More

Shocking place - never even got to eat or drink here. As most reviews say this place has shocking staff issues. Barman completely ignored us when we looked for a table - no sign of any waiting or front of house staff. We walked out and went to Blazes. Much much better. Forget Joe's - looks like it won't be...
