Had dinner and then breakfast next day after staying in one of their rooms. Large, light, pleasant dining area. Dinner menu was quite limited, had expected a lot more seafood to feature. Food was delicious and beautifully presented. Thought portions a little on the small side, should perhaps have ordered extra sides (which you had to pay for). Cheese board... More

Food here was absolutely amazing, laid out beautifully. We went for a family brunch, nice outside area (please put all noisy kids out there), beautiful views of the sea & boats going past, staff were very polite and attentive but not annoying. Food was very high quality for the price and they had a good selection. The only thing that... More

Ten of us went last night and had another fabulous meal, the atmosphere is very relaxed and the staff are so helpful and nothing is too much trouble, eight of us had the sirloin steak and it was amazingly yummy, still we rate this place the best on the island.

The Little Gloster was the perfect setting for Sunday lunch on a typically grey May bank holiday weekend. This bright airy restaurant and bar with far reaching views across The Solent isn't cheap but the food is excellent. We enjoyed beautifully presented starters that ranged from watercress soup, crab cakes and Stilton with figs and walnuts. Mains for our group... More

It's difficult to describe just how wonderful this restaurant actually is, without sounding as if I have shares! Lovely seafront location, with sunset views, to start. The dining room is comfortable, with a relaxed, outdoorsy vibe. Fabulous staff! Really, really fabulous staff! Young kids, for the most part, who whisk around, smiling and efficient, and look genuinely delighted to be... More
