Called here whilst on a round the island tour, they were so slow at serving that we had to miss some of the places that we should have gone to as the bus had to get us back to Port Erin. I had fish and...More

Best roast we’ve ever had, the meat, yes I tried all three was lovely, the flavours of all the different veg was amazing and the portions were enormous! We’re all very full still a few hours later...definitely well worth the drive from Onchan. Staff were...More

Very disappointed. Place advertised to be open from 10:00am. I came all the way from Douglas and arrived at 11:40 for a nice lunch and they told me the kitchen was closed and all they could offer was a piece of cake!More

Four of us had lunch yesterday. What can I say? Staff lovely. Food average. The so called "hand cut chips" were awful....tough, overcooked and didn't look or taste nice. Perhaps if they peeled the potatoes and/or removed the eyes it would be an improvement.

Niarbyl is well off the beaten track but very well worth taking the effort to get to. The views of the sea and coastline are stunning and the old thatched cottage that sits on the small pier looks so "oldy worldly" and could illustrate a...More

On the island with my man (his first time). Wanted to bring him here as every time I’ve been it’s been great. Not disappointed! The weather could have been better though! Damp and breezy but the scone and cream made up for that!
