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.

I had an amazing time. The demo is accessible, Robert is very skilled and personable. The food was delicious. I think you could serve much less food maybe just 2 courses - beached whale comes to mind. I will be back for more.

Another fantastic lunch, who'd have thought that cauliflower could be elevated to such gorgeousness! and that was just my starter....if you are first fortunate enough to live on the IOW, then you are even more blessed to have this gem on your doorstep, we travel nearly 100 miles to enjoy Roberts team of great chefs menu creations and fabulous food, with of course brilliant service and attention to detail.Thank you all again, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

My absolute favourite place to eat but usually reserved for special occasions. The meal may be a little more expensive than other restaurants but is worth every penny. I can only imagine the amount of 'behind the scenes' work that goes into every dish. Robert Thompson is a highly inventive chef and every plate is well thought out and created to provide a delight for both the eyes and taste-buds. The staff are very well chosen. They are all friendly and seem genuinely interested in enhancing your visit. I had a wonderful time and think we are very lucky to have a restaurant of this calibre on the Island.

First time that we have attended for evening Dinner. We had the tasting menu and wine flight. The food was delicious and well presented throughout the dinner. Each wine was perfect for the dish and well explained by the sommelier. The chefs served the food and it was a pleasure to watch them working so hard behind the scenes. Despite this they still had a smile and a warm welcome as we were seated. Robert was friendly and attentive as always ensuring that he provided time for all of his guests through the evening. Thank for a lovely evening.

Hi, we had a wonderful time, and travelled to the island for the weekend just to eat at this restaurant. The waiting staff were amazing, attentive and great fun. I was very disappointed through with the lack of stock within their wine menu (hence only 3 stars). They had no house champagne, so the nearest was almost double the cost and they had no Pinot Noir, which we would have preferred instead of their suggestion. That aside a great place to eat, but I would check their wine stock in advance if I were to go back.

Booked for our wedding anniversary. The staff were attentive and friendly, making us feel very special. We ordered flowers and a cake, both of which were stylish and special. Everything was perfect. I can not recommend higher. Thank you
