We found this restaurant quite by accident. Staying at nearby Port Erin we didn't want to eat in the hotel and found the restaurant open as we were passing. I'm so glad we went in for an evening meal, as it was just like getting a lovely home cooked meal. The ingredients were all fresh with Manx food taking pride... More

When it was open, my wife and I often dined at Patchwork. Happy memories of film nights, Frtiday night burger nights. LESS happy memories of the utter shambles that they had instead of a booking system (To be told "sorry, we've double booked". is annoying, the FIRST time it happens.. The THIRD time, it happens, one begins to wonder why... More

Always worth a quick bit to eat in the patchwork. Lovely service from Nikki and her team with fresh manx offerings. Closed in Sept 2016 and planning to reopen in 2017.

Thought we would see if this was one of a few eating establishments open in the off season, sadly it wasn't. A sign on the door suggested it has closed down.

Great choice of locally sourced food and very nicely cooked and presented, a very nice ambience inside and a lovely warm culinary experience, well worth a visit ad it offers a little more something than your usual cafe

I felt so sad after visiting Patchwork because it used to be my favourite place in the south of the island but now it's really not good anymore!! It's such a pity! It's lost ALL its charm - it just looks like a normal caff now, with plastic tables and plasticky chairs and nothing interesting on the walls anymore. The... More

We had visited before and thought it was ok so decided to visit again. We realised it was pretty busy but didn't expect to be completely ignored. We hung around by the counter and eventually a waitress headed in our general direction. We gestured to a table by the counter and asked if we could sit there whereupon she smiled,... More

Lovely cafe overlooking the bay that also bakes and sells it's own delicious soda bread and various chutneys. Small but lovely ambience and delicious home cooked good. Happened upon a film night organised every Thursday evening@18:30. Two courses plus film £22.50 (bring your own bottle). Good value and truly charming staff.

Have only heard great things about this cafe but unfortunately for us it wasn't up to scratch at all. Took over 45mins to get a quiche which was around 1cm thick and tiny with a plate full of chips & very thrown together salad. The menu didn't have a lot of choice & we felt that they didn't have control... More

Thrifty, cute and delicious, Patchwork is an award winning destination cafe in the heart of Port St Mary. Owners Rich & Adrienne Ashcroft's mission 'Always Homemade' means they are serious about simple, locally sourced food. Since opening in April 2011, they have quickly established an excellent reputation for home-cooked breakfasts, lunches, daily specials, cakes and great coffee served in a relaxed and informal atmosphere (wi-fi). Patchwork has recently won a competition for the 'Best Breakfast on the Isle of Man'. Taste of Isle of Man - Highest Quality Assured 2014, Taste of Isle of Man Harvester Award 2014
