We were staying at the Lakeside Park Hotel and Spa and this pub is about 5 minutes drive up the road. We went at 7.30 p.m.on a Monday evening for dinner and found a couple of family groups finishing their meal and a decent sprinkling of couples of all ages at various stages of their meals. Several small groups and couples arrived after us, providing a good atmosphere and plenty of business for what is usually a pretty dead night. I had a beautifully cooked duck and mushroom dish - even the vegetables were cooked to perfection - and plenty of sauce. And all dairy free, essential as I have an allergy. My husband had two starters - IOW smoked salmon and potted shrimps, which he really enjoyed. The wine list is unusual so we indulged a trip down memory lane with a bottle of Fitou, last drunk in southern France over 20 years ago. So different but enjoyable. Wanting to catch the ferry the following day, we stopped here for lunch and again the place was pleasantly populated, service impeccable and food delightful. If this place was over the water in Poole, we would be regular visitors and will go back if we ever visit the IOW again.
