We had a lovely homely meal in here, well priced and massive portions, we were glad we didn't have a starter. Lovely big pub with separate area for family dining and outside area right next to the river. We would definitely visit here again.

We have visited The Bargeman's rest on numerous occasions with family and friends and have never been disappointed. The staff I always find friendly and helpful and we think does an amazing roast dinner!

The 8 of us were going to the cinema in Newport and due to the fact that we were seeing different films showing at slightly different times we needed somewhere close by where we could all eat. Not knowing the area we tried to book the nearby pizza place but they were unable to take bookings as it was, allegedly,... More

I have visited The Bargeman's Rest on several occasions over the years usually to meet up with friends for lunch, a drink only or dinner. I have always enjoyed the atmosphere here & the food is good local pub food & reasonably priced. It's also a good venue to listen to local musicians.

I had a nice meal in this dog friendly pub. However, the small car park means some people need to park down the road. As no spaces are reserved for Disabled Badge Holders this means a walk, which although easy for able bodied people, makes it fairly inaccessible to people with mobility difficulties at premium times. I was supposed to... More

Whilst I was pleased to read that you had a nice meal at the Bargeman’s I was naturally disappointed that you have given us an average 3 out of 5 rating for what I can only assume is our lack of parking. Unlike many establishments in the town we are lucky to have a small onsite car park and 2... More

Twice in one week we found ourselves in Newport at lunchtime, once after a walk from the marina and the other time after a bike ride from Merstone. On both occasions we stopped for a lunchtime drink and sat outside in the sunshine. We found the beers very palatable but we didn't try the food. A family on another table... More

Popped into the Bargemans for a pint on the return from a business trip on the mainland. What a pleasant surprise to hear a local band playing. We stayed for an extra beer as the atmosphere was so good. Have decided to come back tomorrow and have a meal. This is a great pub and highly rated by us

Stumbled across this pub, late afternoon, on our way back to East Cowes. Lucky for us food is served all day! Very friendly bar staff, who quickly processed our bord boarder 9. Food was excellent, selection ordered from main menu and specials board.. The food itself was delicious and the portions huge. So glad we found this place!

Excellent quality food, cosy location, and reasonably priced. Always a good atmosphere too! They sometimes have live music which is a bonus.
