Great country pub. Landlord has really got the place going. Good food but a little expensive. Good pint of Fullers pride. Great service. Nice place to visit after a walk along the old railway line . Enjoy your visit.

Just happened to almost drive by this pub.. so glad we didn't. Couldn't get a table at the garlic farm nearby. Looks nothing special but the sign outside stating 'local produce' drew us in. The Sunday lunch was fabulous. And I'm fussy. Desserts huge and homemade and delicious. Fantastic well kept beer. Locals all standing at the bar with great banter mixing with holiday makers such as us. Lots of tables with reserved signs on them so obviously a good sign. Just wish I wasn't driving as the ale was fresh and looked after. We will be back!

Very busy on a Sunday lunchtime. As I was there at noon prompt, no problem getting a table but half an hour later the place was full. It is only a small pub, with two rooms. Rain rendered the garden unattractive, which perhaps added to the press inside.

Friendly landlady (Rachael?) served promptly and food came quickly too. I had Okell's from the Isle of Man and it was in very good condition. My main course and a pint came to �16, but the roasts were on offer for �8 or so.

Depite the busy food trade, there was a fair sprinkling of folk only having a drink at the bar.

The open-top bus from Ryde stops outside every half-hour daily during the summer. Handy, but at other times of the year, public transport is decidedly sparse.

We popped in here just before the garlic farm. Just as well we did, as the sauce made from naga chillies is lethal and numbed by taste buds for a while afterwards. This pub is out of the way, but appears to be out of the way for diners. The food looked quite appetising, especially the baguettes which were massive. Beers were from Fullers - London Pride & Gales HSB, alongside a guest beer which was Hydes Bitter. The cider was Aspalls. On the negative side, the two people who were working behind the bar and serving meals were rushed off their feet, meaning service was a little slow. The prices were notably excessive and the Sunday opening hours (12-3 only) are fairly limited. It's a nice location. But the prices left a slightly sour taste before the spice of the garlic farm.

Great village pub. Well kept beers and the food is superb, if a little towards the top end of the market for pub food (but worth the money). Recommended, but don't expect to get a table to eat without booking!
