This place is great for lunch, especially when you can sit outside.

There's a tapas menu. Tradtionally you need several dishes of tapas to form a meal but, to be honest, one and a bowl of chips is more than enough since they don't seem to do 'small' here - which makes it great value. I particularly love the beetroot and tzatziki salad: a portion is enough for me for a meal, though you might want to add bread or chips?!

Good food, nice staff, space outside. It's missing a view but that's all.

p.s. Also, you can pick up the free wifi from Yelf's next door... just sayin'!

I had tried this restaurant with a group of friends for a private function and liked what was on offer so thought I would go again with my husband to show him what I was on about.
We went on a very busy Saturday but did book. Who ever took the booking (owner?) was very helpful and we had a great table in the window watching the world go by. It was carnival night so lots happening inside and out but that in no way distracted from the great service we had. Although the bar got busier and busier we were never forgotten and were attended by various staff when appropriate.
The tapas was great, a good twist on the usual offerings like black pudding or hallumi - recommend both and the lovely mini icecream cones Mmm. Got there in time for happy hour too, lovely cocktails. Loos good too always a bonus in a busy venue.
Various seating areas, not all around the bar, plus some outside and also a room downstairs.
We were probably a bit too old for a Saturday night with the young crowd and music - made an interesting evenings entertainment, but will definately return for lunch next time

The Black Sheep is fabulous. Our favourite place in Ryde. The staff are very polite, attentive and really know how to provide excellent customer service. The outside area is clean and spacious, there are very few places that you can sit outside in Ryde this is lovely and very dog friendly. The tapas is superb, creative and delicious! The Black Sheep is a great venue for club nights and show casing a real variety of live bands.

Get yourself down to The Black Sheep, you won't be dissappointed!
