The sign on the wall says Please write a review on Trip Advisor... We need it. Now I know why. we were there on Monday night, Chinese New Year. Cowes was bustling with Asian visitors, the town was so busy. We eventually found a table and there was a distinct lack of staff so almost every table in the place... More

The food here is delicious. The Risotto was so good I went back two days later for seconds! My husband enjoyed his humungous burger as well

Decided to finally have some dinner at a pub, it was busy and a warm day 11th jan. Orders were put through a breeze, as we waited for our food we could hear the chef behind the kitchen well being a little un friendly towards other staff and ringing the service bell like mad. Very embarrassing. Food orders were coming... More

Food was very nice but our order had been forgotten by the kitchen and we ended up waiting 45 minutes for our evening meal. Beer was nice and cold and the wait staff were very obliging and apologetic for what wasn't their mistake!! Just as well the penguins were delayed coming up the beach!!

This pub could be really awesome with just a little bit of love. Staff are a bit indifferent kind of felt like ordering a beer at the bar was putting the barman out. Ordered some food and it came quickly and was nice (hard to stuff up wedges but it's been known to happen!). Great views and good location. Biggest... More

Call in here for a drink often, not sure why the council haven't visited. The male toilets are a health issue, no running water to wash your hands, toilet seat lying on the floor and it stinks! Food actually looks ok but staff are all pretty casual and not much care about detail. Based on the toilets alone, I would... More

On the last day of our holiday we decided to enjoy a pub meal....what a disappointment this experience was. We were seated on the upper level, which was quite close to the toilet, which absolutely reeked. We discovered a pool of unidentified liquid in the toilet foyer which was accompanied by a caution sign, and was never cleaned the entire... More

Went there with an couple we had to ask 3 different staff members to clean the dirty sticky table. Then ordered flathead tails with chips and salad, I thought they were taking the piss with the so called salad. Needed my glasses on to see it and the flathead tails were like a piece of leather.

We went here with a group of couples for dinner, we were there about 7pm which is a good time to go out. It was a Friday night and the place was quite busy. Drinks were ordered and brought to the table but further service was slow. We all ordered meals most having an entree and main the meals were... More
