Matt & Cat review places to eat and drink across the lovely Isle of Wight. Nobody else on the Island has reviewed more, or better! From the most modest of burger vans, pubs and cafés to the grandest hotel restaurants, nothing is beyond our scrutiny. Enjoy our rants and raves – add your own comments, and dispute our conclusions.

We’re always interested in what you are eating – or cooking! Tag us in to your Isle of Wight food and drink posts to get a retweet/like/share.
