I visited IoW for a couple of nights earlier this month. On the first afternoon there, I had 1/2 pint of Old Thumper which was excellent. The following evening I decided to call in for a pint on my way back to hotel. But, the pint that was pulled, by a different person, had no head on it and looked... More

Okay it's not bang in the centre, but only a few minutes walk away with two car parks very near. Very enjoyable meal and good value for money. Only down side was a member of staff who kept calling me 'Mate', as in :- anything else Mate, do you mash or chips Mate, etc. A little training would go a... More

Your feedback is very welcome. Although you enjoyed your meal I was naturally disappointed by the manner in which you were addressed by the member of staff and offer my apologies. The term “mate” is not a form of address that I approve of and I will endeavour to ensure it does not happen again. More

I've visited the bargemans today with a group of service users from the home where I work, in total there was 15 of us. I telephoned through to book tables in advance and also requested 2 reserved parking bays if that was possible. .. Arrived a little late but there was 2 reserved spaces right by the door nearest to... More

Food, ambience and service all top. I had fish and chips, it was the largest portion I have ever seen and did not disappoint. My 2 girls (aged 1 & 2) shared the kids shepherds pie,very very tasty. My mother had the pie of the day, mince beef & onion, I think this portion was a little too big, it... More

Firstly as we entered we noticed it wasn't busy which was a good thing but noticing most of the tables had been left dirty with plates on so we didn't have much choice in where to sit secondly the coke was flat and nothing was done about it they didn't care, we waited over half an hour for the food...

Have just returned after a week on the Isle of Wight and wished I had discovered this place on our 1st day instead of our 3rd. There were 4 in our party and we ate there for 4 evenings on the trot. The menu is large and varied and the helpings were superbly large to match. In total, between us... More

My husband and I ate here twice during our holiday to the Isle of Wight and thought the food was superb. The food was excellent, freshly cooked and huge portions. Each night we ate there we had decided to have a desert but we never actually ordered them because we were so full ! I would recommend the Fish Pie... More

We ate here as a family of 6 in the evening. We were staying in Newport and we'd noticed this pub when walking by the river. It was easy to get a table - there is a separate area for families to eat - and the menu was vast. As a vegetarian, there was plenty of choice. Our 3 children... More

I was very pleased to read that you enjoyed your evening with us. I am sorry you were not acknowledged on your arrival, however being a pub rather than a restaurant, we offer a more informal dining experience allowing our customers to choose where they would like to sit. Your positive review and recommendation are very welcome. Thank you. More

No doubt about it, it was very busy when we went for our meal, however we got a table for four with relative ease.
