We ate here with the 12 and 13 yr olds. The three of us had the roast. Generous portions and the food was beautiful! No gristly cheap roast here. The rump roast melted in your mouth! Great spot to eat with kids. Fast friendly service.

Thank you Fiona for your recent feedback on our Lone Pine Bistro. We are thrilled that you and your family had such a positive experience - our roasts are very popular and are renowned for their "melt in your mouth" taste! We hope to see you again very soon.

We visited here with friends, the food was good, the service was friendly and they have a really good display as you enter the club.

We stopped here for lunch on our way into Cowes. The lunch was excellent and we decided that we would probably eat here for the rest of our holiday. We enquired about the advertised 'Courtesy Bus' and was told it was for Members only, not visitors. I suggested to the member of staff that it looked as though the club don't really want visitors and she just shrugged her shoulders and said "Sorry'. We are not heavy drinkers but do like to share a nice bottle of wine with a meal. I can't afford to lose my license so we opted not to eat there any more. On the positive side it meant that we tried lots of other restaurants which were all excellent.

Thank you for your recent feedback after your experience at our Lone Pine Bistro. We are happy to read that you enjoyed your meal. Our courtesy bus only operates on Friday evenings and is only available to members. We love welcoming our visitors to our Club but unfortunately, are not able to provide a courtesy bus to run at all times due to the logistics of running a service across the Island and the cost involved. We look forward to welcoming you again in the future.

My husband and I celebrated an anniversary with dinner. We have to say we were astounded that a restaurant charging over $30 for meals would find it acceptable for children to be allowed to run rampant through the restaurant while screaming and arguing with each other and their parents at full volume. Neither parents nor management at this place exercised any control or demanded any reasonable standard of behaviour. Our dinner was the most unpleasant of experiences and we left as soon as we could.

Dear Rex and Debra
Thank you for your recent feedback after your visit to our Lone Pine Bistro. We are disappointed that your experience did not meet your expectations and fully understand how uncomfortable screaming kids can be when you are trying to enjoy a meal out.
There is, however, only so much our staff can do with parents and kids – being a Saturday night, we were fully booked and this may have been the reason why you weren’t able to relocate.
We will be addressing your complaint with the Bistro supervisor.
We apologise for your discomfort.
