The Little Gloster Restaurant is a little way out from the hustle and bustle (it’s in Gurnard) and it stands apart from the crowd in every way. With gorgeous views across the Solent the restaurant specialises in Scandinavian-influenced food taught to the owner by his Danish grandmother, and it offers a warm atmosphere throughout the year.
If you like your food honest and simple you’ll be in your element when you see the menu, it’s kept purposefully simple to showcase all the flavours of the local produce. Here’s a little tip if you’re planning on visiting, time your meal for a sunset as the sight of the sun melting into the water makes whichever dish you choose even more special.
The Little Gloster always inspires warm reviews on TripAdvisor, with diners describing the relaxing setting, the welcoming service and one even describes it as “a hidden gem”.
If you happen to find yourself on the island for Cowes week book a table for lunch one day as you’ll have a great view of the racing while you dine. This is a nice restaurant to bear in mind for a special occasion or a romantic meal for two and the fuss-free menu means it’s even a hit with children.
