Staying on the Isle of Wight for the week, we were looking for a seafood restaurant to have a decent, though reasonably priced lunch. It would be very easy to walk by this little unassuming restaurant without realising just what you'd be missing if you did; excellent food in a cosy and intimate setting. There are several choices on the... More

This was the first time we had tried Murrays in several years and the decor was significantly improved. Gone were the oppressive dark furnishings. We are from the lunchtime set menu which features good dishes. Salt and pepper squid, chicken supreme, cod in Provençal sauce and smoked fish cakes were well cooked and straightforward.

This is a restaurant where I'm so glad I did a bit of research before arriving. From the outside it really isn't anything special. On entering it is a cosy little restaurant with probably only about 10 tables. Well the food was everything that I expected of a quality fish restaurant. We had squid and smoked salmon for starters. The... More

Atmosphere good. Location convenient and charming as ever. Had lunch with fixed time available before catching the ferry. Fish soup a disappointment. The rest ok.

We wanted somewhere a bit special to celebrate our 47th wedding anniversary and mentioned this in passing when booking a few days beforehand. How lovely that this had been noted and we were treated accordingly. Thank you so much. Our meal was very good and the friendly young waiter added to the overall experience. Not often able to have Dover... More

Murrays has recently gone through a bit of a transformation with the interior and exterior having a spruce up. Luckily the food has not been touched and it is still absolutely gorgeous. Awesome fish dishes but, as my husband doesn't eat fish, we've also tried the steak and they are awesome too.

We arrived late in the mid afternoon at the end of the lunch shift and the last guests were leaving, but we were accommodated and both ordered seafood platters. They were fine fresh fish and we chatted to the owner to learn all about the 40 odd years the restaurant has been established. We accompanied the food with an excellent... More
