oh for the happy days when Peggy and Karl ran it a proper pub - never mind - if you like expensive beer and pretentious food or are a visitor going to the IOW and dont know where else to go....

Sorry to say but the place has changed hands.
It is renamed as a bistro and is very overpriced, terrible service and looks like a transport cafe.

The food is a poor attempt at creating small expensive quality servings - typical starter is two small fishcakes that look like small scotch eggs with a hot chilli sauce (�5) main course... a bucket of mussells (�12) makes you feel sick after six and thats your lot - nothing with it whatsoever - ripoff!!!

Beer was warm and tastless.

Cosy pub, changed hands a while ago, and the food is nowhere near as good- the restraunt is also very cramped too.
Food now ok, but nothing great for the price.
Nice staff and nice bar, if cramped (!)
