The best Sunday dinner I've ever had on Island - the beef was melt in your mouth - portions were large and good value. The Raven - I'll definitely be back time and time again!

I was waiting for 45 minutes. I know that is the first of May, but you could not to speak a customer saying to take seat and then nobody saying nothing during 45 minutes. Okell's The Raven is probably a good place to eat. I don't know. Maybe I'll try in my next visit to the Island.

This is venue for a friendly night out with good food and beer. The parking is a little bit restricted. It is also a great place to view the TT races as the bikes negotiate Ballaugh Bridge.

Visited here for the first time yesterday and the bar man processed our order wrong. Then he had the nerve to blame my boyfriend for not telling him the right order (when I was sat a few tables away and heard him make the correct order).
