Isle of Wight eatery retains local pub character

An eatery on the Isle of Wight has been praised for retaining the character of a local pub despite being an attractive destination for families.

According to Matt and Cat of the Isle of Wight Eating Out Guide, Caulkheads in Sandown is recommended, particularly for its steak and ale pie, which was described as "spectacular".

"The meaty contents were really surprisingly rich and the flesh was lovely and lean," wrote the pair of reviewers, who added: "This was a good pie filling."

It was noted that the meal would have been "outstanding" had the pie been in a pastry case, rather than just featuring a "hat".

Those on Isle of Wight holidays with young children are even able to take advantage of a communal microwave during their time in the pub, in order to heat up food for babies.

A review of Caulkheads in Sandown on Qype by user mattone stated that it has enough of a choice on the menu to suit even the pickiest people.
