Really nice restaurant. Great food. Service unobtrusive but efficient & friendly. Don't hurry you at all & even when you eat early they aren't looked no to turn the table over. I loved the crab rarebit starter and the lamb shoulder as a main course...More

What a wonderful little culinary gem in the middle of sleepy Bembridge. The menu is varied to suit a range of palates and combines traditional ingredients and mixes them up with a quirky touch which takes the dishes to a new level. My main of...More

I am what is traditionally called a "fussy eater" but boy was I surprised from the caramelised fig starter to the belly pork mains. A range of flavours, beautifully blended and presented. I can only say "try it" you will not be disappointed. To top...More

I love this restaurant. I never give a perfect score but when I taste the food on offer here I genuinely can't fault it. Smoked haddock twice cooked soufflé, monkfish with satay sauce, the lamb, then salted caramel tart and cappuccino pannacotta. All faultless. Clever...More

Visited this Bistro back in January during a weekend away for my birthday. Had tried to visit previously having heard great reviews but it was booked up. Very small venue which created a lovely cosy atmosphere. The food was nothing short of delicious. The menu...More

I recently ate at Locks Lane with family and was left feeling a offended. There is no doubt the food is lovely. I had the Pork belly and it was nice and juicy, the crackling perfectly crisp and the sauce it came with (albeit not...More

We have visited the island about 20 times over the past 18 months while house hunting, so a lot more eating out than usual! General standards on the island are fair value meals of the "gastro-pub" standard -- good but not special. Lockslane is quite...More

Went with local friends. Food choices were good, portion sizes fine. Service very good. Wine choices limited but right for the food on offer. Not big, so plenty of chance to talk to other dining guests if that is what you want. Make the effort...More

I would say no, because it's quite small and intimate, even if the dog is small, it's not suitable for them.

Children over 12 are very welcome at Lockslane, although the bistro does not have a children's menu or offer children's portions.

Hi, It's really down to you. There is no second sitting so the table is yours for the night. It is a relaxed atmosphere and the owners will serve at your pace. I would say min 2 hours, max 3 hours. Enjoy.

Lockslane is an intimate restaurant right in the heart of Bembridge. We source our ingredients from the shops right here in our village and across the Island: vegetables from The Farm Shop, and fresh fish from Captain Stan and Island Foods for meat from Isle of Wight farms. We are intentionally small, concentrating our efforts on providing attentive service and a dynamic menu.We are open from 6.30 In the evening and take last table reservations at 9pm, though you are welcome to stay as long as you want thereafter. Due to our size, we only allow children over the age of 12.
