Seems to specialise in cheap lunches for oldies but caters for anybody. Bets seen in summer from the back of the bar overlooking the waters of Wootton Creek. There is a waterside garden for warm days too.

Didn't think there was much of a choice on the menu, ended up going for a carvery which was nice apart from being a bit sparse. There was one lady behind the bar who I felt sorry for as she was on her own serving a long que of people. For dessert we ordered a rocky road sundae, which we... More

We had Sunday carvery at the Sloop Inn when we had family visiting recently, with 2 young girls (8 & 10) and a baby to cater for, as well as 4 adults. We had booked a table and I'd notified the restaurant of the group size and high chair requirement, but unfortunately we'd still been put on a round table... More

whilst on one of my frequent IoW visits I Popped for a pint - I thought! I stood at the bar and had had four/five 'passings' by the 3 staff i saw, staff going back and forward past me NONE saw fit to say hello/smile/nod- studiously ignored as if it was their job to ignore customers. After several minutes (seemed... More

Depends what you want to eat really and how much you want to pay! Good value for what it is. Basic pub grub and good choice for kids or those on a budget. The carvery is huge and good value if you do not mind overcooked veg.

We came here for a cheap breakfast, and that's exactly what we got. The food was ok but all a bit over cooked the bacon was bulk cooked which meant that the top bits were burnt and the underneath weren't cooked enough but saying that over all the food was cheap and cheerful and the view of the boats was...

Have had lunch here a couple of times this week while visiting the Isle of Wight and can't fault the place. The food is excellent value for money and the staff are pleasant. Although this wouldn't be my usual kind of place to eat I was converted after my first visit... great for families too!

Lovely customer service but food lets the place down! Low prices for mediocre food during the week but we thought we would try for Sunday lunch as price is doubled so assumed more effort may be put into food. How wrong! The Yorkshire pudding was like a crisp the meat was dry and everything else seemed like it had been... More
