It’s part of a local group called ‘character inns’. Their philosophy is to convert historical inns into food and beverage destinations with limited accommodation .

In general, the interiors are well designed and tasteful, which is reflected in The Bugle.

So expectations are raised and then immediately dashed by staff calling you ‘mate’. Is that an Isle of Wight thing?

The food here is dire. Sludgy soup which was ridiculously sweet, bland cheese, cheapest foiled butter on the island etc. But more worryingly, reheated food that was cold to the touch having not been temperature probed. They just don’t understand the risks!

This was our third attempt here but no more! We have had similar problems with them in bembridge and cowes.

This group needs to invest in training!

Not recommended

Firstly, thank you for your kind words about the interior of our Pub, much appreciated.

We are sorry that your whole experience with us was not to your liking.

I can assure you that all our staff are highly, trained, qualified Chefs and Assistants. We did apologise that the mashed potato was not quite hot enough for you at the time of your complaint.

We have so many wonderful reviews complimenting our food, friendly, helpful staff and ambience that we are quite taken aback. You seem to have been to many Pubs on The Island and don't seem to find hardly any to your liking.

As a group we do indeed invest in training, taking many young Islanders through an Island based training scheme and giving them an opportunity to grow and flourish in our company as many have. As a Family, Island based company we have always intended to 're-invest' in the Islands future and give people a career and company to be proud to work for. With 9 Pubs full of employees ... I think we are doing a good job on 'investing in training'.

So, sorry you feel you can not recommend us. We feel safe in the fact that many do.

The Bugle Team.

My husband and I stopped here for a drink on route around the Isle of Wight. We really love Yarmouth itself and the bugle is a charming place to stop. It has a garden at the rear but the interior is also very warm and friendly.

Stayed for a single night in a large room. Decided to eat at the pub as had a warm (open fire) friendly environment + nice and busy. Food was well priced and tasty, as was the local ale. Breakfast was equally good with nice crispy bacon. Shower/toilet were a bit noisy, but really not a problem. Thank you! (PS Good run route to Freshwater c. 5km through countryside on the doorstep a winner)

We stayed for 2 nights and our room was okay. It had a double bedroom and a lounge area and then a bathroom. All a bit tired and also as it is an old building the noise levels aren't great. We could hear someone hoovering downstairs in the pub area early Thursday morning and if you leave your window open you get car/lorry noises. It is quaint. I think the heating in the rooms is monitored by a central control as we had no control over it. Parking there are only 4 spaces and 1 is always allocated for the manager which is a little annoying, but you do get re-imbursed for parking in the long stay car park. You also get 10% discount on food and drinks as a guest staying. Food isn't great though, we ate there when we arrived as we were so hungry, we had lunch, it was okay. Breakfast was included (always nice) and again it was okay but nothing special. Staff were friendly.

Thank you for your review.

We can only apologise for hovering noises, our cleaners never come in before 9, but if this is too early for you we can only apologise once again, we do have a huge Pub to clean that has to be open by 11! The outside traffic noise is beyond our control .

Our Manager lives on the premises so has a space.

Very average indeed. Standard of cooking was about what I would expect from someone who has to cook for the family every day, but always struggles. In fact, it was pretty poor. Not what we had anticipated. Also, there is always difficulty in getting served here - even at relatively quiet times. It's unfortunate that the locals and their dogs spread across the manned area of the bar and really don't like to move aside. To exchange a friendly word is like getting blood from a stone. Not an atmosphere we enjoyed, so we will give it a miss in future as there are a range of good eating options in Yarmouth. Shame as it is a lovely building with good space.
