Very welcome after scrambling up and down steep and soggy steps. Slightly oddball architecture in the middle of a very English village otherwise. Pity the naff weather prevented us from using the courtyard and garden furniture to sit outside. Tasty Italian food, including pizzas (small size if so desired), pasta and salad. Settled for the delicious French onion soup myself.

A pub with character serving Italian biased food. Great atmosphere, service and food.
Tucked away in Bonchurch,very small car park but character all the way. If parking and access was easier would visit far more often but then again so would a lot more people, so best kept a secret.

Went mid week for lunch in September but was still quite busy so you'd probably be wise to book if going at more popular times.
It doesn't look much from the outside but the atmosphere and food were really good. I had a lovely but extremely garlicky chicken Kiev, my husband had the lasagne. He also had the tiramisu which he said was the best he'd had in many years.

This is our "go to" eatery. Last night was for my birthday and we took friends along as usual. There are so many things i like about this place including the friendliness of the staff. No matter how busy they are....and they were very busy last night.....they always have time for you. Nothing is too much trouble. The other very special thing about these people is how hard they work to make it a great experience for you. Last night, they had asparagus (which i love) on the starter menu wrapped in parma ham with a sauce. Unfortunately when i read the menu, i realized i didn't like the sauce and mentioned it to the chef. Not a problem he said i'll do a different sauce with it for you. How's that for service? And it was gorgeous and that's why we keep going back again and again. Thanks Bonchurch for making my birthday special.

Lovely meal at cute pub just round the corner from our rental. Delicious food in a very friendly old fashioned ambience.
