Popped in here the other day for a quick lunch after an appointment and was very surprised. Although the dining area which is actually just away from the bar is on the small side, the meals we had were absolutely first class, very reasonably priced and almost enough to feed two people from each plate. Needless to say, we will... More

A good selection of well kept real ale at this multi-level pub in Cowes High Street. A variety of food available which is good and well made. Staff friendly and helpful. Close to Red Jet Terminal so why not pop in here as a first port of call when arriving on the Island?

2 adults, 6 children! Friendly staff welcomed us as my sister and I faffed about with 6 children. The menu offers standard pub grub kids meals, but when they were brought to the table, you could tell that they were just smaller portions of main meals. Delicious pasta dishes with side salad and garlic bread. Mini sausages and chips. Plenty... More

Stopped in for lunch which was wonderful and very reasonably priced. We had the Mixed fish platter to share and there was more that enough of it and it was excellent in fact all the food that came out looked good.

The best pub in Cowes. Go in the late pm and share the stories of your sailing day with your mates - and people you don't know, but are patient enough to put up with your tales.

Good on the go pub grub. Good drinks list and I come in regularly, drinks prices are a little on the expensive side.

My family and I have been here a couple of times now as the food is great. The burgers are world class and superb value. Our recent visit was no disappointment, however I did find the baby changing facilities lacking. Whilst it is first and foremost a pub, it would have been nice to change my son's nappy on something... More

Sue runs a tight ship with well trained staff a good kitchen and always a warm welcome. It's in the centre of the high street, just off the red jet which makes it a great meeting spot.
