New Season, New Boat - What to do for lunch?

So, hoping for some good weather latter part of this week so we can give the new boat a good try out in and around the Solent.

I'm very familiar with the area but really from a yachting point of view with boats that draw 2 to 2.4 m. So, I'm looking for any recommendations for locations to moor up for a couple of hours for lunch that are 'rib-friendly' (Cowes, Yarmouth, Bembridge, Beaulieu, Wootton etc, etc) where we can jump out for a bit.

Where do you moor up for a break for family lunch etc?

Thanks

Yarmouth is really good. Always seems RIB-friendly, a good few watering holes, a deli, a good chandlery etc.

I don't think anything beats the Folly, though there's a nice eaterie (it's a bit like a throwback to the 50s inside) here halfway up the zigzag road above Ventnor harbour if you're round that side of the island. They've got an interesting selection of exotic spirits there too.
