We have never been disappointed (other than when they have been full when we left it too late to book a table!) when visiting this restaurant. It is an absolute gem, not too big, with friendly service and a delicious and varied choice on the menu, using fresh, local ingredients. This time we went with friends who were staying with... More

Having heard how good Lockslane is from several foodie sources we finally made our way for dinner. The restaurant is simple but nicely decorated and I was impressed that with only 18 covers they don't try and jam in more tables. Front of house is efficient and very professional and the chef is skilled and very confident in her cooking.... More

This is a great little bistro, very friendly, cosy atmosphere, excellent food. I recommend the lamb with anchovies which go together beautifully and the salt chocolate tart which is exceptional. A hit with me and mnd my friends.

We dined here during a visit to Bembridge and were very, very impressed with our dining experience. The service was excellent, with the recommended wine being excellent. The food was well cooked, to an excellent standard. We didn't feel at all rushed during our meal, which we really appreciated. We also enjoyed being able to dine without children roaming around!...

My husband and I are frequent visitors to the Island, as we have family who live there. We wanted to find the perfect place to have a romantic meal together on a rare night without the children. What a find. Lockslane was warm, welcoming, and the food was absolutely fantastic. Quite small and compact, I wouldn't recommend if you want... More

Lockslane is an intimate restaurant right in the heart of Bembridge. We source our ingredients from the shops right here in our village and across the Island: vegetables from The Farm Shop, and fresh fish from Captain Stan and Island Foods for meat from Isle of Wight farms. We are intentionally small, concentrating our efforts on providing attentive service and a dynamic menu.We are open from 6.30 In the evening and take last table reservations at 9pm, though you are welcome to stay as long as you want thereafter. Due to our size, we only allow children over the age of 12.
