Lovely traditional pub. Good choice of four nice real ales and some nice cider for my wife. We sat in the garden which is very well set out and very welcoming. Nice views as well. Out very small snacky lunch was just some potatoe wedges. Nice enough but just four little wedges for about £6 ! Good garlic mayo dip with it and small salad ganish.

While on Holiday on the Isle of Wight last week I came across this hidden gem. Over the course of the week we ate here 3 times. On each occassion the food was excellent. It was not gormet food just decent well made, well cooked home made food that was fresh. The land ladys, Kate and Sandra along with Lesley who works on the bar are friendly and helpful. They are always pleased to see you and treat you as you would wish to be treat. They also cater for children with both a childrens menu and a toddlers menu which was very useful when you have a 7 year old and and 18 month old baby with you. I have to say their Sunday lunch is excellent but the real treat comes when you try their deserts, you just kind of have too in this pub and I am not usually a man who likes desert.

I have eaten in this pub on a number of occasions and the food has always been freshly cooked. My Son loves the Westover burger and the Hunter's chicken, again all freshly cooked to order. There are no sea views from this pub as per the previous review "Ghoul mariniere" and I've never seen this meal on The Sun's menu board, therefore I think "that" review is for The Sun Inn Hulverstone IOW. I would hate to see anyone put off The Sun Inn Calbourne due to a geographical error!

Good value and a good menu, quick service and friendly staff. We were running late to join our friends and the kitchen waited for us, nothing seemed too much trouble.
Food was good - and plenty of it, we were too full for anything more than coffee - although no latte available and the cappuccino may have been from a packet, but it was ok.

Went twice while staying locally on holiday. Very straightforward traditional pub surroundings, no pretensions. Staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. Choice of guest beers. The surprise here is the quality of the food, superior pub grub, well cooked and well presented, the steak and ale pie was particularly good but ample choice of other stuff from the menu or specials board. Would thoroughly recommend for the food.
