Have been visiting The Sloop for years now as it's a quick and cheap option for a roast dinner. Always been average to good quality and under £5.... but now gone over the £5 !! The place has been refurbished and items added to the menu including a pizza bar. Haven't tried the pizza yet but will be down to... More

Pub looks very attractive from outside with views of the estuary. Unfortunately the inside has been hideously transformed. Starting with the bar. Queuing ropes like a 1950s theatre are not a good sign with only 2 people at the bar, totally unnecessary. Carvery looked reasonably priced and a lot of locals were eating from that. We ordered 2 platters across... More

Booked a table which was a good job as it was very busy, I had problems finding a car park space which took around 10 minutes, once inside table was ready for us, we got drinks which are very reasonably priced compared to other island pubs. We all chose different meals, 2 starters which were brought straight to the table... More

This has always been a great place to eat for under a fiver when I visit my friend on the island a couple of times a year. Sadly now under new ownership, carvery more expensive but still less than anything on the mainland. I looked at the drinks list at the bar and ordered a Becks, asked if it was... More

Have been many times to the Carvery and you get what you pay for. Last night 5 of us went to try the new Pizza Bar. We arrived got a table and bought drinks, checked the menu and ordered 5 Pizzas, it was 50 minute wait, bit long but ok. Pizzas were very nice but salad bar trays mostly empty.... More

Carvery was very good and has certainly improved since last visit the refurbishment has certainly paid off much lighter in restaurant

Visiting this cheap eatery was initiated by my niece who is a vegetarian and indeed for her it's a great value of money, with a salad bar, warm veggies, different potatoes, and all of this on an "all you can eat" concept for only 4,50 pounds!! We tried the small carvery at only 0,50 pence more... but have to say... More

What a disappointment, when this pub was operated by Crown Carvery's you could get a decent meal in a large pub with friendly service. The breakfasts were great and there was plenty of room both to sit and to grab your grub. Today I went for breakfast, for the last time. I was greeted by a sign on the door... More

This restaurant has changed ownership again,but apart from adding more food to the menu they seem to have stuck to the same carvery idea. Judging by the crowds there for dinner it seems to still be working. They only have two proper beers here and both were 'settling in the cellar', shame. Why do places like this have to have... More
