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.

The food was amazing and very reasonably priced considering the quality. The service was excellent. Being able to see the food being cooked was lovely and having each dish explained to us was a great touch.

Absolutely superb meal and service from start to finish! The attention to detail was exceptional and the staff could not have been more accommodating. The wines were great and we were delighted to meet Adrian and see Tiny Rebel on the IoW! Thank you Thompson's!

Better than lunch at the Ritz. Very tasty combinations, just the right portion size and just the right time between nibbles and courses. Excellent, friendly and courteous service. Should give the staff a medal for carrying the plates up the narrow twisty stairs.

Fabulous food, relaxed atmosphere and excellent service. A good meal is one to be remembered and one that stands out and this certainly did that. Dined as a family, and if back on the Island would definitely return. Highly recommend Thompson’s.

I am fortunate to eat at some of the best London restaurants through work and Thompson’s to my mind was up there with the best of them. My children (14 and 19) really pushed their palates through trying menu items that surprised me. They loved it, as did I. The price was top end and possibly a little too high, that said, a great evening with exceptional food. Thank you!

We visited Thompson’s for the first time and were blown away by the service we received and the food was on another level, it was simply outstanding. It was such a wonderful experience and we enjoyed every minute of it, we can’t wait to come again and wish we had come sooner. We celebrated our wedding anniversary and it was perfect. We would highly recommend and will certainly return.

Very very happy with our visit, we had the tasting menu. Which was a great mix of flavours,showcasing lots of different techniques. Having dined in many a fine dining restaurant i was amazed by the portion size of each dish, very generous.It was also lovely to see Robert himself working the pass and also having a chat with all his guests. All to often these days the modern day rock and roll chefs are no where to be seen in their own establishments.

Great restaurant! Love the open kitchen, where you can see the chefs preparing the food. Good to note that the restaurant was full up at lunch time. Matrè d’ was cherry and friendly, the chefs & waitress the same and the food delicious. No lengthy waits either.
