So pleased we managed to get into Lockslane at our second attempt. It's quite small so essential to book. Small, but by no means claustrophobic, with a great ambience. An imaginative menu superbly prepared and presented.

There's a moment near the start of the movie Raratouille when Remy tries to explain his love of food to his brother Emile. He demonstrates that different ingredients can be combined to become larger than the sum of their parts and release explosions of exciting...More

We had a lovely meal here. The starters and mains were beautifully presented and the flavours were stunning. The recommended wine was also very good. We decide to share a cheese board for dessert and this was the only area that let the restaurant down....More

A bijou restaurant in an unprepossessing location run by the two lady owners; one front of house, the other as the chef. Food is imaginative, with a good selection that regularly changes. Presentation is lovely and portion sizes are perfect. Front of house is relaxed,...More

Top notch in EVERY WAY. The place has a lovely, friendly, relaxed feel and the food was absolutely divine. I just wish I'd had room for desert as my first two courses were so tasty as were my girlfriends. Loved it and would 100% go...More

What a wonderful little culinary gem in the middle of sleepy Bembridge. The menu is varied to suit a range of palates and combines traditional ingredients and mixes them up with a quirky touch which takes the dishes to a new level. My main of...More

I would say no, because it's quite small and intimate, even if the dog is small, it's not suitable for them.

Children over 12 are very welcome at Lockslane, although the bistro does not have a children's menu or offer children's portions.

Hi, It's really down to you. There is no second sitting so the table is yours for the night. It is a relaxed atmosphere and the owners will serve at your pace. I would say min 2 hours, max 3 hours. Enjoy.

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.
