We were a large group of adults and a number of dogs. We were welcomed by friendly and efficient staff and people and the dogs served with a smile. We had Sunday roast and a desert which was excellent and very good value. Would definitely go back again.

This is a really good pub serving good quality meals. Some of the meals are home made and we sampled a couple of them which were really nice. The pub has a good atmosphere and the landlord and staff are particularly friendly. Would recommend.

Average pub. Nothing to rave about. The waiter was friendly though. We expected the food to be better. We were a bit disappointed about the experience.

We went here four times during our stay in Ventnor and the food was great, especially the Sunday lunch which was amazing and really good value. There was a choice of beef, lamb and gammon. The beef was beautifully cooked and the Yorkshire puddings were outstanding. The staff here are very friendly and the pub does a nice range of beers. This is a must if staying in Ventnor.
