Perfect birthday treat
Reviewed 23 September, 2021
Cannot fault this place. Excellent service which makes you feel special. Food outstanding. We had a steak and a Caesar salad. Both 5 stars. We were even escorted to the garden bar after our meal and had coffee next to the sea and the beautiful view of the Solent and ferries. Prefect birthday treat!
Lunch in the garden with a sea view
Reviewed 22 September, 2021
We were revisiting old haunts and simply had lunch there. The garden with its sea view and old castle walls is delightful and we had a delicious, but not cheap lunch. The Staff we spoke to were charming and polite. However, we left by walking through the main reception and it is looking a little tired. However the really sad thing was that all the plants in their were artificial, plastic and badly faded!!?
Not somewhere I could recommend

So disappointed to arrive to a deserted terrace and be told that all of your drinking tables were full? Not even to ask that the space be free for a later booking? Not professional at all, and not somewhere I would recommend. Very rude hostess.
Picturesque and convenient setting but simply overpriced

Ate here on a sunny evening prior to getting our return Ferry which is conveniently 1 minutes walk away. You can even watch the Ferry as it arrives! Staff were friendly and the food quality was excellent but it still left us feeling that we'd paid a lot more than the meal was worth. These prices are higher than central London and we're just not sure how they can justify that or are happy to leave customers with that feeling of being taken advantage of. I would recommend the garden on a warm summer's day for an expensive drink and pizza but with beautiful views across the Solent to enjoy it but sorry to say, unless money is of no object to you and as a nurse mine is very hard earned, I would suggest you think twice

Rude hostess,after spending £416.00 in two hours we were asked to leave as people that had booked for a wedding that were two hours late were arriving,and they needed the table,over priced,rude staff and after spending that much money I will never go there again,one thing I did notice was they looked after people with alot of money! And can afford £600 for two liters of wine at a time,what a joke,this place has amazing views but that doesn't justify the prices or treatment,next time we visit this place is a no go
