Felt that the Fishbourne, has taken is covid 19 safety measures very seriously and we all felt very safe. Food very nice, can recommend the sausage and mash meal it was delicious!

Food was beautiful, service was slow but times are very difficult at the moment so understandable. Everybody was very friendly and apologetic for the circumstances.

The whole Covid-19 business has somewhat dampened the atmosphere! you feel it's now a bit of an ordeal to go for a drink/meal rather than a pleasure.

We had a nice breakfast but we would of liked our drinks before our food, It was a sunny windy day but there were no umbrellas out, so a few of us got burnt.Food was good quality and the staff were very friendly and helpful.

Well organised from a lockdown point of view. We were expected for drinks only as that is what we normally do on a Sunday. However this time we wanted to support the Fishbourne Pub & so we asked for a table for a meal which was promptly supplied by Claire.

Excellent. Did not know what to expect with it being the first day opening during the COVID pandemic, however was all good. Met upon arrival and everything explained very well. Felt safe all evening and the food was great.

Had a lovely experience on the first day of post covid opening and the staff were fantastic. Made it clear to us how it all worked and we were properly distanced and the place was kept spotlessly clean. Food slightly pricey I feel but lots of choice and smaller options of many mains are available.

Very polite and friendly staff in a comfortable and welcoming atmosphere. The duck, however, was totally tasteless and very tough.

Excellent service and fabulous food, all wrapped up in a quality character pub. Highly recommended. The Fishbourne is fast becoming our inn of choice on the IOW.

We were welcomed and shown to our seats - service was pretty good but it did take some time after finishing our meal to come to clear the table. There wasn’t many people in so it was difficult to comment on atmosphere

Having booked well ahead for 8 people for 1.15 sunday we got drinks and decided on our lunch order only to be told there was a 40 minute wait for food!!! As I had pre-booked for a special family get together I would have appreciated being informed of the possible length of wait for our order when seated then we could have ordered food as soon as seated and not got drinks sorted first. Everything else was very good but as a pre-booked arrangement I should have been informed on arrival of the wait for food, we hadn't just wandered in by chance .I was disappointed and felt I had to apologise to my family for them having to wait so long, it was my treat for my birthday ,having everyone together.

We had never visited before and were pointed out in a vague direction to our table - we had no idea we had to order from the bar, where the specials boards were (didn’t see those til after our meal) or that we had to get our drinks ourselves. Also we found out by a note on our table that our table was rebooked 2 hours on from our booking - it wasn’t made clear at the time of booking. So with precious time of out two hours wasted waiting for service they would never come, we ordered. The food came promptly but it felt like cafe food with butter packs thrown on the plate and sauces in paper - Macdonalds style. The mackerel pate had skin and bone in. It was all just a bit off the mark. The fish pie main had little fish in it and about 80% mash, veg was under done. Again we felt a bit deflated. Finally there was no crumble, although there was indication of this (even on the later discovered specials board) - we skipped pudding - probables best as we would have had to move from the table half way through for the next diners. It wouldn’t take a lot to make your beautiful pub really special - but we won’t be returning in a hurry
