We visited the S, Fowler & Co Weatherspoon’s public house /restaurant in Ryde whilst on a short break to the Isle of Wight with our granddaughter. Our second visit to a pub in this chain in a week (and about 290 miles apart), we combined it with a train journey from Shanklin to entertain our granddaughter. The pub is easy... More

Not very friendly staff. The worst eggs I've ever seen! Very hot plates so obviously even sat for ages. Would not go back. Would not recommend

Went here with a friend and our three children. Found table in family area easy enough. Only one childs menu available so they chose their food but had to share the colouring activities. Ordered food and drinks at bar, quick service and the older barman was fun helpful and friendly, even carried our drinks upstairs for us. Food arrived quickly... More

I visited the S. Fowler with my wife when visiting Ryde. I usually ignore what other reviewers say about an establishment because all places get their bad days. Workers who wish they where somewhere else, managers who don't manage and of course, customers whose expectations are too great. However I do agree with much of what has been said because... More

Visited early eveninG with my young son to sample their Sunday roast. First issue was attempting to get served. There was only one person behind the bar when we arrived and he seemed to be only serving customers at the opposite end of the bar to where I was waiting (some customers he served arrived after us). When challenged, he... More

Me and my boyfriend visited the Newport Wetherspoons before trying this one and we have to admit that the Ryde one needs a lot to get it up to the standards of the Newport one. The pub seemed full downstairs so we went upstairs to the family seating area. We chose a table right in the corner out of the... More

Typical wetherspoons, good value for money on drinks and food. Good customer service and food arrived quickly. Only downfall would be that it was a very hot week and there was no air conditioning!

Having had several excellent meals at Man In The Moon in Newport, I gave Fowlers a try. I found a recently (?) vacated table - glasses were removed while I was placing my order. Whilst waiting for my lunch to arrive., I asked a server if the table could be cleaned as it was sticky with glass rings. A wet... More
