Great restaurant for fresh, fabulous tasting food. We had mackerel and the crab pate to start which were lovely followed by hake and sea bass, both amazing with a gorgeous prawn and lobster sauce. The restaurant is simple but smart and clean with lovely decor, comfortable seats and nice paintings on the walls. Service was awesome by very friendly efficient... More

The restaurant is in the High Street and has a relaxed atmosphere. The food was amazing. The service by the lady owner was also very efficient and friendly.

We thought that Murrays had had a refit, but the interior is truly awful with cheap rickety furniture and a terrible paint job, nasty polyester carpet giving the impression of a greasy spoon cafe or low budget care home dining room. The presentation of the food was poor considering the prices, little plastic cups contained accompaniments for the soup and... More

Very good quality of food, good menu to choose from, and a friendly environment. Seafood was great- bread supplied pre order, and a nice wine and drinks list too.

Staying on the Isle of Wight for the week, we were looking for a seafood restaurant to have a decent, though reasonably priced lunch. It would be very easy to walk by this little unassuming restaurant without realising just what you'd be missing if you did; excellent food in a cosy and intimate setting. There are several choices on the... More

This was the first time we had tried Murrays in several years and the decor was significantly improved. Gone were the oppressive dark furnishings. We are from the lunchtime set menu which features good dishes. Salt and pepper squid, chicken supreme, cod in Provençal sauce and smoked fish cakes were well cooked and straightforward.
