Visited March 2010 & October 2013 – Cost £££

October 2013 Again staying at Warners so remembering the crab sandwiches we returned for a lunch time snack. Sadly the sandwiches are still about the same price but have hardy any crab in them! They were thick but this was the bread! If you wanted to just have white meat in them that would have been an extra £1.95 brining the price of a sandwich up to £9.50! They were not busy at all; perhaps it was the weather or perhaps like me folks have decided things aint what they used to be! Had to down grade from a Bronze to 14/25 Cost with drinks £££. CJ Perhaps only fair to advise that we did only have sandwiches, perhaps their meals are good. We did see an amazing looking fish platter but it was £62 for two. 

March 2010 We were staying at Warners, Bembridge for the weekend and strolled along to this famous pub nearby.  It was voted IOW Pub of the year 2010 in the Good Pub Guide!  Situated on the coast it enjoys sea views over Bembridge Ledge.They have an extensive menu with seafood being a speciality.  Cosy traditional beamed interior and booking is advisable, although we did manage to find a table.  We only needed a snack as we were on half board at Warners!  From the snack menu the crab sandwiches are £8.00, although a bit expensive there was plenty of crab and served with salad garnish.  The thing that impressed us most was the service and returning the next day for just a drink the barman remembered what we had the day before!  Could it have been the way I asked for our G & T’s to be served??  Regular readers of the site know about our preference!!

Worth a visit if you are in the area, particularly in the summer for outside eating and fab views!

Cost £££ (Warners was very good too!)
