Not what it used to be

One venue we remember visiting as part of our visit to island a few years back. Was a smart, well run establishment back then. Now food was slow and poor, but our main issue was the type of customer now in there, more builders and scaffolders than business persons and couples. Still a nice looking... read more

£4.30 for a Gin and Tonic and £4.30 for a pint of draft cider.... seriously? That is audacious. Oh, but I suppose we are paying for the ambience of Ryde....

Tried Joes before for coffee and cake and was disappointed. Saw a deal on 'price is wight' so thought we'd give it another go! Our offer was for coffee and cake (either cake of the day or scone). When we arrived we asked what the cake was? Only to be told 'we don't do cakes!' When I then showed them... More

We spent the day in Ryde at the beach and for lunch stepped into Joes. First off, the service is impeccable. The lunch menu has a broad range of choices and is reasonably priced. Would gladly visit again.

Myself and 3 ladies popped in for a light lunch and a glass of wine to celebrate after a successful wedding dress shop in Ryde! The bar and restaurant were quiet, with about 3 other tables full, and already eating. We order 4 panini's and 3 bowls of chips. After about 25 minutes we had to chase them to see... More

Omg we were so surprised, the roast was amazing! Meat was perfectly cooked and presented and came with homemade Yorkshire and a great variety of fresh veg, better than... More
