Well what an improved venue from a year ago! The whole eating experience has improved, the food was good, well presented and the staff attitude was welcoming. We went at a lunch time and it was very quiet and perhaps a little light low volumed music would have prevented us all hearing each others conversation and a little more warmth would have been good. The decor is tasteful but it still lacks atmospere, I really want The Pilot Boat to work as it has the location and there are limited eateries in Bembridge. It is important that the landlord is present to promote his hostelry and to get to know his customers but on his own admission he does not work often which leaves the bar staff to do his job. So come on Mr Landlord get out there and meet us all otherwise the anchor will be pulled again,!
