Excellent all round service and food. Only downside was the cold draught every time the opened for customers and smokers..in cold weather might be worth using inner and outer doors...or just don't sit near the door 😁 well will be back soon 😀More

This pub is quite cosy and the staff, particularly three male members of staff that seem to be there regularly are fantastic. Service is quite good, bit ad hoc table service at busy times. Good beer, Marstons pedigree and some decent wine. Food is another...More

Description
Merrie Gardens Farm on the Isle of Wight combines pretty country pub and restaurant under one roof. Charm and character go hand-in-hand with modern interior design and comforts. A big beer garden, stone and brick walls and a lovely thatched roof create a stunning setting for summer drinks, lunches and dinners. There's an open fireplace, wooden beams and chairs upholstered in brocade fabric. Perfect for cool autumnal afternoons and cosy winter evenings. Slide into a booth or sink into one of our comfy chairs and enjoy a pint of real ale or a glass of wine from our well-stocked bar. Enjoy a dish made from the rotisserie chicken we prepare and flame roast in ovens on full display. Once you detect the aroma, you won't be able to resist the prospect of crunchy crisp skin and delectably succulent meat. For a traditional taste of Britain, take a look at one of our classic mains. Merrie Gardens Farm is a child-friendly pub.
