It was out first visit to Brighstone in Isle of Wight. We were looking for somewhere to have drink & possibly dinner and decided Seven was the perfect location. Its a lovely looking building located opposite a beautiful old church, lovely sun terrace out the back with lots of seating. We stayed & had a drink, enjoying the evening sunshine on the terrace outside, decided to have a look at the menus & that was enough to make the decision to stay for dinner. A vast amount of choice on the menus, the owner was very friendly & was happy to accommodate our every need. The evening was going off cold so he offered to light the open log fire inside. This open log fire is a lovely touch, really adds to the atmosphere inside. We ordered the cold meat platter to share, this was promptly brought to our table, beautifully presented on a wooden serving board with chunky bread selection. For dessert we had apple & rhubarb crumble with custard & Cheeseboard, both were delicious. We were so impressed with the high quality of food we returned in the morning to sample the full English Cooked breakfast, again great value for money, good portion sizes & perfectly cooked. The owner showed us around the B&B rooms, they were all decorated to a high standard & in my opinion good value for money, next time instead of camping we will stay here. The current owners have only owned Seven since December 2011, continue working hard all your efforts will pay off. If your visiting Isle of Wight take a drive to Brighstone & visit Seven you won't be dissapointed.
