Isle of Wight hotel has 'splendid food'

Tourists on Isle of Wight holidays looking for a good place to go for a meal have been advised to head to the George Hotel in Yarmouth during their stay on the island.

Matt and Cat of the Isle of Wight Eating Out Guide headed to the venue and described it as "splendid", adding they both greatly enjoyed their food at the location, which was noted as being one of the most famous buildings on the shore of the town.

However, despite the history of the destination, diners are directed towards a modern and airy extension for their meals, which the pair of reviewers pointed out offers views over the pier.

Both of the critics were impressed with the food on offer at the George Hotel, although Cat noted her fillet steak came with an extra beef shin croquette rather than the potatoes advertised on the menu of the restaurant.

"Matt's pan-fried calves liver starter was the softest of meat, beautifully presented with a nest of salad shoots, two intriguing cubes and a good dollop of chutney," the pair wrote.

"The cubes turned out to be mead and thyme jelly; perfectly sweet additions to this delicate meal."

However, Matt and Cat were less enthused with the standard of the service at the location, noting they had to prompt the waiter to bring the bill and were left to vacate the table.

They stated that the food and the location deserved a lot better than serving staff who were unable to remember which diner had ordered which meal.

Tourists on Isle of Wight holidays can also choose to stay at the George if they want to make Yarmouth their base for their time on the island.

Three classes of room are available to guests - standard, superior and balcony - with prices beginning from £137.50 per night.
