We went to the Beach House for a family meal, three adults and two children under five. The food was amazing, the atmosphere lovely and the staff very friendly, helpful and welcoming. My son is a type 1 diabetic and the staff were very helpful in terms of giving me information about the food. We will definitely be going back.

We chose The Beach House for a family meal because it is quite close and dog friendly. The dog friendly eating area has long bench seating which a couple of us oldies found uncomfortable to sit at and enter/exit the table. The food was average but what we expected. I would only recommend this place if you need to take your dog with you.

It always nice to have pre-dinner drinks on the first floor enclosed balcony overlooking the Isle of Wight. We always take fist time guests to the Beach House. We also enjoy the Specials Menu.

The fish stew was very tasty. Service was good and the place was busy even though it was a very windy evening. The car park was very busy so was quite difficult to find a space. Will return soon

Whilst the service and setting were wonderful, the food was poor unfortunately.
My calamari had to be sent back, it was literally inedible, couldn't bite through it!
It was changed for some potato and beer croquettes, these were also not pleasant - thick with grease and the potato tasted like it was instant mash!
My partner enjoyed his dish however.

We have always been very fond of this venue. The views are amazing and the menu was always good and reasonably priced. So we thought we'd have a family Sunday lunch. Oh dear. How disappointing. We arrived on time having booked and stood for sometime waiting to be seated whilst members of staff strolled past ignoring us. Finally seated in a lovely window seat we ordered drinks from a very efficient young lady. No problem. We ordered lunch which arrived fairly promptly. However the young man who brought it to the table didn't know what the dishes were. He announced 2 steak pies which were clearly our salmon pies as they were covered in a white sauce. He didn't ask who had ordered them but just dumped them on the nearest part of the table. Then he brought 2 fish and chips one of which was clearly smaller than the other. I told him the small one was mine to which he just shrugged and abandoned them on the table. The extra vegetables ordered had to be asked for again as they didn't turn up. The food was , as always, very good. However the same performance with the desserts. The young waiter didn't have a clue what anything was and didn't ask who had ordered what. Finally another waiter came to his rescue and sorted out the desserts. Sorry Beach House but this was not the service we expected. I will also mention the hike in prices, less choice especially with the small desserts; only a choice of 3 and 75p more each. We miss the £1.99 or 6 for £10 offer.

The pub was busy when we arrived about 6.30 but the Dining Room was fairly quiet. There were only 2 bar staff on duty and we waited 10 minutes to get a drink.We waited 45 minutes for our main courses ( we had not ordered starters). Other diners were having similar waits and then 1 or 2 meals were arriving with the rest of the table waiting at least 10 minutes. When we queried the delay we were told 'that a large party had booked in before us' . Why not not then book out some of the following slots on Open Table say till 7.30 so that the staff had time to serve the large party before the next diners arrived?
Overall very average pub food with too long a wait. The only read to go to this place are the stunning views from the garden

Looked around local area for somewhere to eat for a birthday, lots to choose from! Reviews were generally very good, arrived to find table would be ready in 10 minutes and it was. Very welcoming and attentive staff, stately home feel with wood panelled decor, great views and the food was tasty and well presented.
All in all surpassed expectations, will be going back when next in the area.
