We had an excellent meal overlooking the sea. What more could you wish for? There was quite a lot of outside seating which was fully occupied as it was a lovely, sunny evening. Booking a table for inside is recommended.

While staying in a cottage in Seaview we visited The Old Fort several times, both lunch times and evenings. The food was very good and reasonably priced. The staff were all very pleasant. Drinks we felt were a little expensive. However would certainly recommend.

Popped in for some lunch while riding from Shanklin to Ryde, all the food sounded good but the curry burger caught my eye. When it arrived I was certainly not disappointed although some of my friends were very jealous!!
