Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

My wife and I visited for an evening meal and were not disappointed, the staff were friendly and helpful, the food was amazing and the service was great, the portions were large and the food was fresh and hot. My wife had the peppered chicken...and I had the garlic chicken both of which were outstanding. The building is very interesting and has been tastefully restored. Overall a great experience and one I would highly recommend.More

It’s a great place. There’s a bar which has a lot of (friendly) locals and a small restaurant off to one side (although you can eat in the bar) The bar/ restaurant staff were friendly and very attentive. The food was well cooked and good...value. I had the fish pie special, the only problem being that I had no room for the profiteroles which looked really tempting. Still there’s always next time ….

Discovered this restaurant after reading other reviews, rang up to book a table & was delighted when they said yes, they had availability for the same evening. When we arrived it was just us and another table, but it filled up as the evening went...on. My husband had the Steak & Ale pie & I had the lasagna. Both meals were delicious & decent portion sizes. We couldn’t resist pudding, my husband had the brownie & I had the bread & butter pudding which was served with an extra jug of custard. Both again were delicious. The staff were lovely & kept checking if we were ok for drinks. Our bill was just under £45 for 2 mains, 2 puddings & 2 drinks which we thought was great for a meal of that quality & quantity. Definitely recommend!More

Really pleased with the great variety of food dishes on the menu. The food was outstanding and drink/ food prices were very reasonable and portion sizes very big! Fish and chips was a winner and filo pie for a vegetarian is a must. Very friendly...staff who offered great service, will defiantly be returning on my next trip to IOW!More

Wow, where to start, visited on the Saturday to get out of the rain and found a gem, booked Sunday lunch, the vegetarian roast was the best my husband has ever had, the Yorkshires are one made, the service was so attentive, great locals that...shared the islands best kept secrets. We would return to the IOW just to have the roast, well done to the chef your talent shines through your tasty dishes. Katrina and Tony Jones from KentMore
