We stayed in Bembridge for the Easter weekend and ate here for lunch on two occasions. The location is superb right on the sea front and we thought the food and service was excellent. Well worth a visit!

The picnic tables were a bit rickety but the food was amazing. We had lobster and crab, chips and salad. It was... More

My first visit to this cafe and the best posh fish finger sandwich ever! Staff were very friendly and helpful . Considering cafe was full service was quick beautifully served and lovely and hot. Dare I say the best chips I have had in a long while.
