According to the board outside children, dogs, goats and chickens are welcome, but there were no goats when we were there, and the only chicken was on the menu. (Do you suppose that the menu expands when a goat walks in? Need one worry about one's dog or children?) Notwithstanding this threat the place was peaceful enough for a busy pub in the town centre in Cowes week, and the food was well-prepared and promptly and efficiently served. I had one of the best seafood chowders I've had outside New England.

Stopped in for lunch yesterday (8th August) and found a very warm greeting from the young lady at the bar. We ordered the beer battered fish and chips at £9.95 each. The fish was lovely but the chips were in a little neat stack and very few of them, unfortunately they tasted awful. I ordered a portion of bread and three tiny circles of baguette warmed up came on the plate with the fish and 'chips?'. Came out feeling hungry inspite of the fact that I am not a huge eater!

This is one of the nicest pubs in Cowes, IMO. I had the fish and chips, the cod was very well battered and tasted as if it was right out of a chippie, very pleased with the value of the meal too!
