I think it is a new couple, now you mention it. I don't want to dis them so ignore my comments.

Having said that, it seems popular.

i went there once a couple of years ago and it sticks in my mind as being probably the worst food i have ever tasted at the price they were charging, plus the service was rubbish and the white wine not even pre chilled. Oh yeah, just remembered, the bread was stale and the butter was dripping through the packaging. I also remember the person looking like he was the owner sitting behind a counter on his fat arse counting the money cus the place was packed. The whole place and food thing reminded me of the 70's.

i went back the next day to complain but it was closed.

Of course it might be all different now.....

I've always found Murrays to be good.

Murrays

It's a proper Restaurant - not just a pub that does some food.

Island Sailing Club has an unrivalled view - food's OK as well.

Folly - Food's OK (average) but in the summer you feel a bit like a number rather than a customer.

Fountain - good to be near your boat on the Quay but the busses going by can be tiresome. Great for a cheeky lager as the sun goes down.

Pier View - probably where I go most but could be any (good) town centre pub. Good beer and OK food.

Depends how you're placing the prize.

I would suggest Murrays for good food but the ISC for the "experience".

I'm sure that the best view by far is at The Waterside Pub.

Rubbish service and pretty bad food.... But the view is lovely from the outside, upstairs bit
