“Great view, good local seafood.”
Reviewed August 5, 2012 via mobile

One of my favourite pubs in the world has a great view of the Solent. From the outdoor seating you can sit and watch the shipping world go by. Fresh local seafood is well priced and curry night is also good fun. Usually only one Ale on tap, who ch is perhaps the only shortcoming.

“Value for Money”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

Stunning location on a summer's evening, this is a very pleasant pub with welcoming staff, decent food and, in my experience on Curry night, very good value for money.I wouldn't use any superlatives to describe any part of the meal experience but the overall package is a success. I'm very wary of curries in pubs but these were much better than most pub curries. It's best to ring to book for curry night.

“Good atmosphere, friendly staff, but let down by food.”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

This is the second time I've eaten here in the past few weeks, last time was good (should have done review then!!) but this time was disappointing. I had the scampi again, which unfortuneately was dry and overcooked, as was the others in our party who had chosen it.
Staff were friendly and the atmosphere good.
