“Nice clean family pub”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

A nice place, varied menu but the prices of the drinks are very high. £4 for a pint of cider OUCH!! Having said that, it was well patronised and the meals did look good as they were served. Staff very polite and clean and tidy.

Reviewed 4 July 2014

Friendly staff, food is ok, standard pub food. Fast service, went there years ago, portions smaller than before, but still good.

“Excellent staff.”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

We were working on The Isle of Wight and our company arranged for us to eat at this pub. The staff were very accommodating, especially when 23 of us arrived late, all together. The meals arrived fairly quickly and were satisfactory.
On one of the evenings I ordered a prawn salad (not on the menu) and was disappointed to have some frozen prawns (defrosted) on top of a pile of rocket, a small amount of tomato and pepper and some lumps of bread(?) Probably one of the worst attempts at a salad I have ever had.
The menu is not particularly extensive and is very pricey for the quality. The drinks are expensive, too. £5.45 for a medium glass of unremarkable red wine.
I would not visit again, by choice.
As the title says, the staff were extremely efficient and pleasant at all times.
