“Friendly staff and efficient staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

We visited the Man in the Moon twice during our holiday to the Isle of Wight and we have nothing but praise for the pub. The staff made us most welcome especially Amy, who went out of her way to find my husband an ale that he would like. We enjoyed our meals which were very good value. As previous reviewers have mentioned it is a lovely building and there are plenty of places to sit. Would certainly visit again if in the area.

“Good food, slow bar service ”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014 via mobile

Went here for drinks and food on a Saturday afternoon. Not particularly busy but had to wait about 10mins to order drinks, other customers had same experience. Main cause which is a bug bear of mine is that it seems as soon as there is a problem be it with a till or credit card payment or wrong order it's takes at least 3 staff to sort it, and the person who can fix it is never nearby.
Either have one person present who can override the technology or give staff more credit and let them sort it.
On a positive we had a meal that was served promptly and was very nice.

“A Great New Wetherspoons”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014

This place only opened in May 2014 so it is very new. It is in a lovely building and has both indoor and outdoor seating.
As you would expect from a Wetherspoons, the food, drink and service was very good and could not be faulted. Would I go back, yes I would.

“suprisingly good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

Went with friends to try this out. It was a lovely evening so we managed to get a table outside. It was nice to see that smoking is banned totally inside and out. We ordered from the Chicken deal menu which comes with a drink. Food arrived promptly, was well presented and cooked well. OK so the food is generic through all Wetherspoons branches, but they know what they are doing and they do it well. We were all happy with our food and drinks and it made for a very cheap evening out in lovely surroundings. We did go in to have a good look around, Wetherspoons have done a fantastic job in renovating this building, just hope the staff can maintain the ambience and cleanliness.

“Tried it out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

Tried it a couple of times now and I have to say it's really very good.

Fantastic conversion job which makes for very pleasant surroundings. Service wasn't the quickest the first time but it was still very new and the staff were still getting used to it. Was much better the next time.

I wouldn't hesitate to go back.
