Best meal on the island
The best meal we had on the Isle of Wight. The food was exceptional. We both had turbot for our main and it was beautifully cooked, as was every course. Service was warm and friendly. I wish we had a restaurant like this closer to home. We enjoyed the food, service and surroundings so much we loitered for drinks afterwards.."

Wow..amazing food
As soon as we walked through the door we were made so welcome. We were seated near the window on what was a glorious day. We had heard such good reviews about the Hambrough, and it didn't disappoint, the food was amazing, the beef we had just melted in your mouth, with that and the rest of the courses it was a wow at every mouthful.! Thanks for exceptional service and amazing food, we can't wait to return.

The Hambrough, Ventnor
This restaurant with rooms enjoys a lofty position over Ventnor beach and affords diners (and indeed those staying in any of the terraced bedrooms) seemingly ceaseless sea views from its principal perch. Executive Chef, Matthew Tomkinson – whose elegant and highly accomplished cooking earned him a Roux Scholarship in 2005, as well as Michelin stars at his two former outposts – only recently came onboard. But he has already transformed the offering here into an inventive saunter through British classics. Dishes are an elevated mix of long-loved favourites combined with uplifting flavours and scents, and each course is pre or proceeded by a thoughtful palate cleanser (ours came in the form of a white asparagus veloute with parmesan cream). Currently, the property seats 25 for lunch or dinner, with a sun-stealing terrace at the back…
