We had dinner here one evening (it is difficult to get in at weekends so you need to book.) My starter of a twice baked soufflé was excellent. My main a lamb was somewhat strong but the smooth potato and veg mixture underneath it made it very good. My wife's starter was particularly tasty and the chicken and prawn main... 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 was not too long, which is always a plus. Nothing too experimental, just great ingredients,... More

I stumbled across this place when looking for a 'nice meal out' venue for my husband and I to have a night out whilst family babysat our son. It was our 'one night off' during our holiday and we were looking forward to a dinner with a bit of a difference. We certainly found this in Lockslane. What a wonderful... 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 thick enough for my liking) tasted great. After the main, I was thinking this is... 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 different! Imaginative food, perfectly prepared and presented by two ladies who really know what they... 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 and go - it is well worth it.

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.
