Description: Priory Bay is the Isle of Wight’s leading country house hotel. Set within a 60-acre estate, it's period buildings have spectacular views out to sea, with gardens and woodland running down to the bay. It inspires our chefs to use the finest seasonal ingredients, whether foraged, farmed or fished we are passionate about local produce. James Trevaskis and Oliver Stephens have both returned to the Isle of Wight to run the restaurant and kitchen at the Priory Bay Hotel. James and Oliver started their careers at Priory Bay and then went on to hone their skills in London, Paris and Copenhagen.

Celebrated a family member's birthday here with High Tea- what a fantastic experience! There were 14 of us though the staff were still extremely attentive and provided excellent customer service. The building itself and surroundings are beautiful and the High Tea was divine- delicious treats, tea and coffee, which included locally sourced produce! A big thank you to the manager Caroline and her team. Would definitely recommend!

I'll say right away there is nothing to dislike. The whole memorable experience it's very hard to find the right words that give it the praise it deserves. My best advise, you just need to try for yourself to see what I mean. Front of house service from James enhanced every mouthful of food with his very knowledgeable descriptive details accompanying each course. Everything was cooked to amazing high standard by Oliver back of house. A master craftsman cooking from his heart. Thank-you both for making our 25th Anniversary dinner the perfect occasion!

We had booked for the set lunch at the Priory Bay Oyster (Brasserie) but when we arrived were shown into the Island Room, perhaps as it was 2 o'clock and there was only one other table occupied at the time. I really is a beautiful room with frescoes all around and complete with an enormous Christmas tree in the alcove. Unfortunately we were unable to enjoy the views as it was rather wet and misty, but we thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere and experience for a good couple of hours as we ploughed our way through three courses and a bottle of wine. A perfect end to 2013!

I took my mum here for her birthday and we had high tea. Really lovely assortment of cakes, scones, savoury pieces. The waiter was lovely and really helpful. We came on a Saturday and it was so lovely and quiet and peaceful that we sat in the drawing room and ate it near the fire. It was special and just what I wanted for my mum. Would definitely come back. We even took some of the food home with us which they were happy to wrap up. Presentation great - high praise to the chefs too.
