Best Restaurants Cowes please

I have put together a RIB experience for a charity auction and am looking for a couple of Restaurants at Cowes who you can recommend for a lunch meal for maybe six persons. The charity will then approach them for a deal. Any ideas greatly appreciated. Presently we are talking to The Folly Inn but may go for a Restaurant in the town.

You can't go wrong with the Folly I would say but most of the pubs in the centre do good food. Never been anywhere posh in Cowes though.

The Fountain in Cowes is a sister pub to The Folly with the same menu but, in my opinion, less atmosphere.

The Pier accross the road is more trendy but I fail to see why!

The Saffron has great food but very condescendng service at high prices.

I can recommend:

--Mojacs (very good value set lunch)
--The Baan Thai. (but not sure if its open for lunch)
--Lugleys.

If you know any members of the Island Sailing Club, lunch there would be a nice prize. I am a member and might be able to arrange if it would help.

Fountain: don't bother.
Pier View: would be okay

Hi Andy, I might be twisted towards Island Sailing Club, who would we contact to discuss. I am putting together a voucher for the auction and may do a separate meal/restaurant voucher as each company will get a mention as set out in this link
http://www.gosh.org/get-involved/att...-pigeon-shoot/ You see the auction at 1515hrs
Cheers Ian

Drop the ISC an email and see what their initial response is; they are pretty good at replying to emails.

admin@islandsc.org.uk

Get back to me if I can oil the wheels at all.

I have it from a reliable source that they get their food from Brake Brothers.

Having said that, it seems popular.

Pish! I do not know how long the current couple have been there, but the food was very good indeed and being from a catering family I know what a Brakes catalogue looks like when turned into a menu.

The service was top knotch and the wine was pretty good to, though obviously I abstained from the latter.
