Been to the Isle of Wight many times and rode by each time from Fishbourne ferry terminal. Fabulous building in lovely grounds, very peaceful. Tea room is HIGHLY recommended; in particular the sausage rolls, pork pies and (yes) corned beef hash pasties! I was disappointed that the farm shop wasn't selling them also. Quarr Abbey beer is superb. The pigs were fun to watch. All in all, would highly recommend if you've an hour spare; more if you're hungry.

We popped in to Quarr on a rainy day. The first thing we saw were the pigs, who had lots of little piglets running around. Very cute and we spent ages just watching them play. It was quite muddy; sturdy boots would probably be best. The farm shop and book shop were well stocked, although the lady in the bookshop was quite surly. There's apparently an exhibition of information in one of the outbuildings, but this was closed due to COVID-19. I was fascinated to know more about the monks and the Abbey, but she just pointed to a book and said "it's all in there, £5 each". Anyway, the lady in the café was much more welcoming, and forthcoming with useful information. And there's always Wikipedia! The Abbey itself was stunning, and we spent a few minutes contemplating in silence. We lit candles in memory of loved ones and admired the simple beauty of the building.

This would have been a better visit had the weather not been so bad. Would liked to have stayed longer and seen a bit more but the drizzle just didn't stop the whole time we were there.

Lovely peaceful place to spend a couple of hours. The farm shop was good, & as well as selling local Isle of Wight goods, sold vegetables grown by the monks. There’s a tea room there & judging by how busy it was it must have been good! There’s pigs & sheep grazing & you can buy bags of apples to feed them. Definitely worth a walk to see the old monastery ruins too. A good place to spend a couple of hours. Easily accessible by bus from Ryde

Great Covid rules, nice greater and seater. Waitress totally incompetent, unable to follow simple requests. Nice cakes cut to very uneven size resulting in a 6 year old being given a size twice the size of the adult, but pleasant enough (not a patch on Osbourne house cafe) . Waitress then screwed the bill up couldn’t fix it, vanished for long time, leaving the autistic toddler very stressed. Affecting her for the rest of the day and night and again knock on effect into the next day. Waitress Came back with 2 wrong bills. When I offered to write down what we had had she Stropped off like a toddler. A supervisor came, totally uninterested in how the waitress had been rude. Just got the money in and us out the door. Last money I spend here. Not short of other places close by
