Looking for something a little special to celebrate my wife's birthday this ticked all the boxes. Spacious and very tastefully decorated there are stunning views across the Solent and but for the clouds I strongly suspect an impressive sunset! Some good background music completed the scene. We were not rushed to order, just as well as I took time in... More

Great spot for a beer after walking up the coast from Cowes. Benches in front of the sea provide a great view. Didn't eat but food looked delicious. Staff friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend.

We came across this beautifully designed restaurant when we were driving through Gurnard. It had received great reviews on trip advisor so we decided to check it out. Our booking on a Sunday was right at the end of their daytime service yet the staff were more than accommodating when some of our party were late. The view and general... More

We went to The Little Gloster to kickstart a lazy Sunday. We both chose the traditional cooked breakfast and they didn't disappoint: really flavoursome, and beautifully cooked. Everything about this was just great, we could even sit outside with our dog under the canopy, made cosy by fleecy rugs and blankets. Staff were very friendly and extremely efficient whilst giving...

We visited during Cowes week recently. It was a glorious day, so we decided to walk from Cowes to Gurnard. Unfortunately, the tide came in and it turned into quite an adventure just getting there, (including a lift on a digger from a very kind builder/gardener who took pity on us!!) As I muttered to my friend "This better be... More

We visited with a party of friends having been booked in since March. We were able to watch the Red Arrows display team outside and arrived at 18.45. Our table was booked for 20.15 but it wasn't ready for us until 20.30 so when we eventually started and finished our meal it was to say the least very late. We... More

We went to Gurnard as my husband had stayed there in his youth. There is nothing there but holiday rentals. We were hungry so saw the sign , stopped and went in to see what it was like. We were shown to a table overlooking the estuary. We could see the boats racing, as it was Cowes week. A small... More

It was only because of past family connections that we visited Gurnard & stumbled upon this stunning restaurant & bar. Set on the seafront directly overlooking the Solent this tastefully styled restaurant with its light & airy interior offers a peaceful retreat from the hustle & bustle of the more popular seaside spots on the IoW. The menu offers a... More

It was our first visit and when we walked in we thought this place was going to be very special, the restaurant is lovely as are the views - however the food is very average and expensive average. As previous reviews, the staff are rather inexperienced, our waiter couldn't wait to take our order we had to tell him to... More
