We eat here a few ties a year and have a good meal nicely presented. Cosistent performance on food and service. In the ummer the garden is well used - -it backs onto a big village pond. Good sized car park and lots of space inside and out.

It is often difficult to enjoy an evening out with a guest in a wheel chair , one coeliac and a vegetarian. Not so here . A warm welcome and no problem with wheel chair access. A superb gluten free and vegetarian option was consumed. Fajitas (gf!) plenty of salad and coleslaw ..even fries too The price £4.95 ..I kid... More

We would like to thank Kevin and Kelly for hosting my husbands 70th Birthday at the Eight Bells. We had a buffet for 70 people (hot & cold ) which was absolutely delicious and enjoyed by all. All the team were friendly and attentive, nothing was too much trouble and we can't praise them highly enough. Many thanks for making... More

Unbelievable Freezing cold. Barmaid had an outside coat on as did we! I ordered a pint of Guinness. There was a Guinness tap. When the barmaid thought I wasn't looking she cracked open a can of Guinness and poured it. It was also amongst the most expensive rounds I have bought on the island and I have been here about...

Having gone to this restaurant last summer (Summer 2015) I thought it would be a safe bet to revisit during my Isle of Wight trip this year. However I was extremely disappointed at what I found. When I was up at the bar ordering the food and drinks the two ladies at the bar were paying very little attention to... More

Nobody answered the phone when we tried to book, tried for ages and left it to ring out several times. When we were in the restaurant the staff let the phone just ring and ring, no wonder we couldn't get an answer. I nearly got up and answered it ! Staff were slow at serving and moaning about Christmas bonus... More

Service is shocking , forgets cutlery then brings out dirty crusty fork huffs and puffs about changing it. Forgot one kids meal so had to wait . Peppercorn sauce with the steak looks like lumpy sick , tasted awful as it looked. Maybe went on a bad day because service and food was good back in April
