“Great place to chill out”
Reviewed March 12, 2013 via mobile

Service can be slow at peak times but there is a small bar area for a large place

Food is great, large choice of wines and bottled beers. Superb views over the Solent.

Well recommended

“Excellent food with a sea view”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

Last minute decision to eat out last night, and been wanting to try the "Inn on The Beach" for ages.
There is a large choice of food on offer, we chose from the 3 course meal deal which was brilliant value for money and had a wide choice of dishes to choose from.The food was excellent, and large portions, service was very helpful and quick, we will definitely be eating there again.

“Great setting and service, alas the food was very low quality”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

We popped in for a light lunch on a bracing Saturday in February. The location is great when taking a seafront walk. The service was efficient and friendly. I ordered a tuna mayonnaise jacket potato and my partner opted for the soup with a side of coleslaw to share. The soup was fine though the side of bread was not fresh bread but the par baked type and a little insipid in taste and texture. My potato had clearly been zapped in the microwave, nothing wrong with this but on a busy lunch trade a few oven cooked potatoes would sell? The tuna mayo was the real let down, it was catering standard, both the tuna and mayonnaise. Equally the coleslaw was the lowest grade and another real disappointed. Freshly shredded veg with a good quality mayonnaise really would have transformed my meal from disappointing to great. Based on this experience I wouldn't eat here again.

“A value for money lunch in a beautiful setting”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

The restaurant is situated on a beautiful beach overlooking the Solent and the Isle of Wight the lunch menu was varied aand I can recommend the mussels and the cumberland sausage. The range of beers lagers and wine was excellent, a very enjoyable meal on a sunny day
