I walk past the town pubs to call in here when I’m Cowes. I just wish they would get rid of The Sun and The Daily Mail newspapers in the bar.

Once again we had an excellent Christmas Staff Lunch. Eighteen of us had three courses of good quality food to a high standard. With friendly staff and good food what more could you ask for.

We pick this Place at random and were very pleased with our choice. The menu is varied and caters for everyone, everything is (or at least tastes!) homemade. We were comfortably sitting in a very good aftmosphere. We'll definitely go back!
