Coast Bar and Dining Room Cowes

Without doubt the most popular place to eat and drink in Cowes, Coast bar and Dining Room guarantees a buzzing atmosphere! Great food and wine with friendly service in a relaxed setting. Booking recommended as its always busy whatever the day of the week.

On our last visit there for a friend’s birthday, Mark had an excellent Bembridge crab and chilli risotto and I really enjoyed my Pork Fillet in Orchard Pig Cider & Mustard Sauce.

I am also a fan of sharing a selection of their yummy little starters, with wine of course, then moving straight to dessert, usually a huge sticky toffee pudding!

They have just (April 2018) had a wonderful refurbishment too – still a great place to eat and drink in Cowes
