there were 16 in our party and the staff could not have been more helpful, they moved tables around so that we could all be together and the food was excellent as was the service. I would highly recommend here for further celebrations

What better way to relax than sitting on the terrace, overlooking the sea, and enjoying food and drink. Ventnor is a lovely place and the whole thing is very civilised.

Popped down on Fathers day, after being told it was good for breakfast from a friend. It was really busy, but the staff seemed to remain calm and the ambiance was really nice. A little wait for food, but you could see it was busy (and we had seen it was busy when we arrived so were happy to wait)... More

The breakfast was the best we have had in a very long time.everything was perfect right down to the weather .it's so lovely to eat outside. The venting paddling pool was a great hit. With our grandson and this is next door. The prom is great to walk on.all in all a great location well worth a visit .

We had been told this is a newly opened business, ordered at 8.10 pm, food arrived very late at 9.30 pm. It was not busy, while we waited one couple left and two others complained. My meal was burnt and husbands was cold. So left without eating. Didn't have to pay for drinks. Certainly wouldn't recommend. Bar staff were friendly,... More

Went yesterday for one all day brekkie and one fish and chips, better priced than most on the Island with a near perfect location, As others have said, a decent size cuppa, great food which arrived quickly and was freshly cooked and the servers were friendly and chatty. No complaints whatsoever apart from the wasps but that's the luck of... More
