“What a surprise...”
Reviewed July 12, 2014

The Raven is a nicely turned out pub. Not so uncommon on the Isle of Man. But when the food turns up ...it is well above average...it's fantastic. Wonderful steak pie and the best sticky toffee pudding ever (ask for it with cream and custard.) Service was lovely. Just the right place to relax and enjoy a beautifully cooked meal.

“Great Sunday Roast”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

Visited 29th June for Sunday Lunch. Pub was very busy but happy to wait for a table to be free. Sat outside at tables which overlooked TT Course at Ballaugh with a cold beer. Meal arrived quickly and was well worth the drive. Recommend you book if visiting at busy times.

“Crackin' bite to eat!”
Reviewed July 5, 2014

Absolutely awesome food at the Raven. Not only that but also there is a great service, staff and setting. I recommend the pork and apple burger followed by the sticky toffee pudding - it's unreal! However, all their food fantastic. Overall just a brilliant pub!

“Great food, atmosphere and welcoming staff”
Reviewed July 3, 2014 via mobile

The food in The Raven would not be out of place in a five star restaurant. The staff are very friendly and welcoming, and make what is already a very atmospheric pub a fun place to spend an evening. The Okells 'Ravens Claw' is sublime and unique to this pub... It is not to be missed!

Been a few times to the Raven and it's never disappointed us. The food is lovely and the staff can't do enough. Whether it's a party of people or just a couple they are very welcoming. Would definitely recommend this pub ......love it .
