We used this pub the last time we were on the island, but it was so like lots and lots of pubs. We did think we would give it another go, but we had found the Sportsman by that time.

Great place to take the kids for a meal. A lovely play area outside with outside seating overlooking a duck pond. The staff are friendly, the food is above average for pub fare and they have a nice inexpensive kids menu. You must save room for a sweet their sundaes are amazing.

We had an excellent lunch here last Saturday 04/10/2014. The service was polite & friendly, & the food was very well presented. We had a fantastic meal & would recommend without hesitation. One point to note is that they do not have a credit card machine so cards can only be accepted via telephone authorisation.

Can't say the food was terrible; it was just OK. Also the place lacked character & as its in such a delightful location we... More

I eat here quite regularly with my friends, the food is always lovely, the service always fantastic and the price is just right! Looks lovely inside now that they have refurbished it and the garden is always beautiful and a pleasure to eat in when the sun is shining!

Chose to visit the Eight Bells tonight as didn't fancy cooking or having another evening in. Was made to feel welcome on arrival. Wasn't that busy so plenty of tables to choose from. Decided to sit on a small table out the way as dining alone. Didn't feel intimidated or out of place which is important. Ordered off the specials... More
