Best Value food on the esplanade !! Try the Steak and the roast dinners. My family ate here a few times whilst on holiday with my son eating the sausages and mash on 3 occasions. Great staff and Management. Hopefully returning next Year..

Spent a Week in Ventnor and visited The Mill Bay Inn on a couple of occasions. The food is fantastic and the Owner/Manger is helpful and friendly. Lovely views if you sit outside on the terrace. We will return..

All the staff made us feel welcome and nothing was to much trouble, the food was excellent and very reasonably priced. . I would certainly go back there for any further family celebrations or for just a nice meal out.

We had dinner three times and found it to be plentiful and good value. Family run business. Take a way baguettes came with chips and was good value as well.

Was touring the island by bus and stopped off at Ventnor to have a look around. After a couple of drinks fancied some lunch and chose the Mill Bay Inn. Really good choice as the food was good, well cooked and presented and excellent value. Being a pub they had a great selection of drinks all at a reasonable price.... More

We went here with a large party on a Thursday afternoon. Great location overlooking the beach. There was a carvery on which looked great and only £6.95 which most of my party had. I had the jacket potato with prawns and salad (delicious). Service was good and staff friendly. Will definitely go back
