We enjoyed a great meal here, recommended by our B&B and the recommendation was thoroughly well deserved. The menu is varied and full but without being too lengthy. There were lots of options that we could have eaten and we found it difficult to choose (always a good sign!).
The service was friendly, helpful and efficient. The atmosphere was relaxed yet buzzy.

This was a return visit (last visit 2012, when we found the service chaotic). This time it was much more organised. The welcome was good and the table was ready for us this time. Initial service was efficient, but they did seem to forget about us once the starters were served. We had to wait an unacceptable amount of time for our mains. The food was good and we all enjoyed it (7 of us), so overall it is good place to eat, but still some improvement to service would be welcome.

I'm a local and enjoy walking to this pub from Shanklin (through the woods, cycle tracks, farmland). Nothing beats the locally sourced, beautifully rare, roast beef followed by apple crumble and fresh vanilla custard. I lived in west London for 12 years and in my opinion the food here is as good, if not better, than Gordon Ramsay's Foxtrot Oscar in Chelsea. Roast beef and crumble about £20. Very nice staff too.

Had a great family meal here on the way back from Alum Bay. Very welcoming with a great atmosphere. The menu was awesome as was the food quality. Do not hesitate to recommend it to all.
