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 waiters were very polite and friendly when they were serving us the food. They explained the dishes and wine well. Definitely a great dining experience especially with such wonderful waiters.

Another fabulous meal and a great way to impress a new boyfriend from foody Bristol! We had a wonderful vegetarian tasting menu which was varied course to course and utterly delicious. Immaculate service too and we especially appreciated having each dish explained by its chef. Only very minor comment we would make is the fondant potato was a little undercooked. That’s really picky though! Thank you all.

This was the last meal we had on our trip to the IOW. It was a wonderful example of saving the best to last. Everything from the welcome to the last morsel and sip of wine was outstanding. Each course of the tasting menu was delivered and introduced by the chef that prepared it. The whole evening was relaxed and delightful.

Following an amazing meal when on holiday last year we returned again this year for dinner and then lunch. Each time the food and service was faultless and of exceptional quality which is hard to beat. Robert Thompson was also attentive to his guests which added a lovely personal and special touch. We would not visit the Isle of Wight again without returning to Thompson’s restaurant. Very highly recommended.

When we arrived we were met by Robert Thompson himself who was very friendly and helpful in wine suggestions to go with the Tasting menu. Excellent delicious dishes, presented beautifully. Only suggestion is that the pineapple was a little sharp.

My husband and I absolutely love this restaurant and we cannot fault any meal we have had. It’s great to see them cook in the immaculate kitchen and then wait on as well. Not the cheapest meal but it’s just perfect food.

We received a great welcome. We’d arrived late due to travel delays getting home to the island and the chance to relax and have a drink in the bar was most welcome. We decided to try the tasting menu as some of the combinations sounded interesting - and had some things e.g. cuttlefish that we’ve never tried. All aspects of the food and service was superb. We will be back !!

When we normally dine out, its order the food, eat and leave - all over in half an hour. The e-mail booking told us the table would be needed after 2 hours, and we chortled. Nearly 2 hours after we entered, we were still there - the food - all of it delicious - just kept coming - lovely little appetisers in between the 3 courses were perfect and all presented by each of the chefs in turn, and we never felt we were neglected. Give your taste buds a treat and head on over to Thompson's.

This was the second time we have been to Thompsons, I am a vegetarian and the food is some of the best vegetarian food I have had. My husband was equally impressed with his food. We will definitely be going back

We were particularly impressed by the quality of the food and the fact that, as people with disabilities, we were able to enjoy a hassle-free and normal night out.

The food is excellent value for money. The prosecco was a little pricey - but very nice and I guess you only get what you pay for. A thoroughly enjoyable dining experience :-)
