About Thompson's

Chef Robert Thompson’s style has always been a congenial one: his menus have remained brief and to the point, his style of cooking respectful of the old classics, yet mindful of a modern dining trend that values, above all, lightness and freshness, only serving dishes that you can imagine he would enjoy eating himself. He always looks no further than the producers outside his front door.

Only adverse comment was the lack of carbs! Otherwise, thoroughly enjoyed.

Food was amazing as were the drinks. Kitchen staff could smile when they come to the table. I'd prefer cutlery already laid out on the table but just a preference. Would recommend though.

Lovely meal, great service and the chefs were even happy to talk to me about some recipes I've been trialling at home.

The entire meal was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Added to that, it was mentioned that it was our 17th wedding anniversary and our dessert had been decorated anniversary congratulations. We loved the fact the different chefs delivered the plates and explained in detail what each dish consists of. The waitresses knowledge of the wines was amazing, well done - we will DEFINITELY be returning soon!

Lovely tasting menu which worked well for us with one no fish and one veggie. We had a great evening, good service and no feeling of being rushed

I found this restaurant on trip advisor as I was searching for a nice restaurant for my husband and I while we visited the Isle of Wight- menu looked good so we booked in. I was taken aback at how calm the restaurant was through the evening even when busy...normally there is too much music or too much noise from a busy restaurant but here it felt calm and relaxing and intimate which was really enjoyable. The food was 5 star quality and the attention to detail was spot on. My husband is a chef and even he was speechless at how each dishes elements enhanced each other into something magical! I would definitely recommend to anyone coming to the Isle of Wight.

Excellent culinary creations from a highly engaging and talented Chef. One of our party was vegetarian and the care and attention given to those dishes were exemplary.

What a night, from start to finish it couldn’t be more perfect. The food, service was excellent and the food was to die for. We ordered from the a la carte menu, and sat in front of the kitchen watching them work. The little touches made the night. Highly recommended five stars

Never disappoints. Never been a fan of most of the deserts on offer, but the panacotte we had today (with blackcurrant sorbet ) was great

This was a birthday celebration lunch and was a total success. Everything about our first visit was just so good. The decor, the ambience, and service were excellent and the food was to die for. Every course, every mouthful was filled with flavour - just delicious. There is always a fine balance being looked after or fussed over. The service was perfect. Thank you for a perfect lunch.

It’s a treat. Matching the food and wine is always a great idea. It was as delicious as ever (even without the boss watching on!)
