Relaxed, quality and great views

Really good quality food. Well worth a trip. Not really dog friendly - you have to go outside where there are only benches to sit on and often very windy... Leave the dog at home and go and enjoy a great meal.

Menu may not be the most adventurous but...it's all beautifully cooked and presented. Lovely location especially good for dinner, the sunsets are the best on the island.

For our last dinner on the lovely Isle of Wight we decided to follow my brother-in-law's advice and try The Little Gloster since we were staying nearby. It was a dreary rainy late afternoon but even so it was nice to be able to see the water. We arrived just before 3 pm when they stopped serving lunch but the... More

We went for lunch whilst on the island and had an incredible lunch. We were recommended dishes and a matching wine which was just the perfect compliment. The staff were friendly and the chefs are great, you can see them working away through the open kitchen front. Highly recommended

Fabulous breakfast of eggs royale and full English whilst enjoying the full glory of a panoramic view of the windswept Solent being churned up by the aftermath of Hurricane Desmond. Great service and nautical crafty type decor. Only downside was they served brown bread toast despite ordering mixture but free jelly babies by the till

We knew of the place through our local friends and sacrificed the Osborne house to come here for a lunch on a Sunday. Worth it. Lovely ambience, food decor and taste. Loved the fish of the day with mussels and the venison. Will come back for the burger next time :)

I visit the Isle of Wight regularly to visit my father in law who lives in the western part, and we regularly go to the Little Gloster for lunch. Over the 5 or 6 years we have been going there we have never been disappointed and the cooking is really excellent. The menu is pretty short which always suggests fresh... More
