There was nothing to dislike about either ther service or the food at the Hamborough. The service is both friendly and professional which can be a hard balance to achieve. The food was a brilliant twist on a traditional Christmas as you would expect from an exceptional Chef like Robert Thompson. It was tremendous value for money when you think what some lesser establishments charge for turkey on Christmas Day. The wine list is excellent with well described and interesting wines alongside the more well known.

We recently ate at the Hambrough and found the menu exciting with a great selection of wines. The food was of a high standard along with efficient service and a beautiful location, we will hopefully be back again soon.

Food is highly rated by most (Michelin star) but sadly just not to our liking - we like our meat properly cooked whereas so-called 'fine-dining' seems to require it very underdone! Dining room pleasant enough although marred on that occasion by building works next door. Service pleasant and efficient.

Stayed at the Hambrough for the second time and it was just as amazing as the first time. The tasting menu is perfection and the service is faultless. Would recommend to anybody especially for a special occasion

We wanted to crown a short break on the Isle of Wight with a dinner in a good restaurant - and found our way to The Hambrough more or less by accident. The restaurant truly exceeded all our expectations. We chose the tasting menu with the wine selection and got rewarded with a creative cuisine and surprising taste combinations. The service was excellent, attentive but discreet, and we appreciated the staff's comments and explanations. The atmosphere is stylish, but not stiff. Make sure to have good view over the sea, the setting is simply stunning. Although it's quite a journey from Switzerland to the Isle of Wight, we are looking forward to coming back soon - just to enjoy again Robert Thompson's cuisine!
