    Popped into Harvey's bar for a drink. Saw the menu and decided to stay for a lunch bite. Brilliant service by smart and charming staff. Not cheap but well worth it. This is a place you might well wall in past but try it.

    We purchased a tourist parking permit on arrival in Ryde. (Details are on the ticket machines) We then parked on the street outside the hotel. You get unlimited parking and you can park all over the island at no extra cost.
