We'll be back13/06/2013 00:00:00Excellent food together withExcellent food together with ambiance, views and good service.13/05/2013 00:00:00Pub with best view!Fantastic views over the Solent to the Isle of Wight, from most places inside, also lots of outside tables when the British weather allows!
Superb new menu too11/05/2013 00:00:00Sunday Lunch 5 May 2013We took my wife's 87 year old brother who can walk only with a frame. However, we were shown to a table which he could easily sit at. The beef and chicken were both very good and the waiter was attentive and helpful. The meal was enjoyable and good value. One of the major features of Osborne View is the view itself.05/05/2013 00:00:00Great mealWe had a birthday evening meal, on the Sunday before Bank Holiday Monday. The food was super, well cooked and tasty. Menu has a great range - with small dishes and large dishes of some favourites; this meant Grandma and Grandad could not feel they were wasting food if they couldn't eat it all!
Negatives - very busy, very noisy - we were upstairs, I think it maybe better downstairs. And the service was slow, although friendly.05/05/2013 00:00:00booked onlineI always have the dread of booking online and then a rubbish table being allocated, but no! Great window seat to watch the sunset with great service from Jemma who looked like she was the only member of staff at one point.
The food was varied in that it was fabulous, however, a burger was requested without a bun but with onion rings- received a bun but no rings.(was offered free fries to make up for the loss of the onion rings but already had fries so declined) Gammon steak appeared without peas but all in all what did arrive tasted very good.
Would recommend as even though it was very busy there was no extended waiting time for the food.05/05/2013 00:00:00Home away from HomeLove this place. It may look like a small place from the outside, but when you step in, it is like the Tardis. You are greeting by genuine smiles and a warm welcome. The view is outstanding and the service is second to none. This is one of my favourite pubs in the UK. The food you can tell is made by chefs who take pride in their work. I have recommended this to several friends, most of which have gone along and echo my own thoughts. Rock on Osborne View28/04/2013 00:00:00Good value at the Osborne ViewFriendly and helpful staff. Food was very good and would recommend friends to go there23/04/2013 00:00:00Great lunch on a sunny dayMet up with family for lunch. Sat by a window overlooking the shore and sea. It was a wonderful sunny day and everything about the meal was good. The waiter was helpful and gave us timely service. The cost was mid range but the quality of the food made it worth it. All of the food was fresh, hot, tasty and ample portions. The range of the menu is good, something for everyone! I would recommend the Osborne View without hesitation.23/04/2013 00:00:00We found the restaurant veryWe found the restaurant very helpful, I did book through top table but they did not ask us for our booking.11/04/2013 00:00:00ExcellentGreat Sunday lunch, been here several times before, a firm favorite!31/03/2013 00:00:00Love the view!And don't really want anyone else to know...

A very enjoyable experience, helped by very friendly staff22/03/2013 00:00:00Love the food and the viewBeen here several times now and the meals are always very good. There is plenty of choice which is helpful when you have several different tastes to cater for in a small group.
Service with more than a smile, a sincere pleasant chat and attention to details written in the reservation's book – the special welcome for mum on her 90th birthday and a candle to finish the meal was especially appreciated.
Even in winter when you can't really use all the tables outside near the beach this pub has a warm and friendly feel. We will keep coming back.12/03/2013 00:00:00Lovely Pub with a viewI've been coming to The Osborne View on and off for years.
It's main selling point is the view across the water, but also it offers good Pub food and service.
There is a good range of beers and wines to suit most and the atmosphere is good, great for a conversation without the worry of nearby nosey people listening in!10/03/2013 00:00:00Sunday LunchWe had a lovely Sunday Lunch at the Osborne View to celebrate my son's 18th birthday (his choice). With ages ranging from 7 to 81, we all enjoyed our meal. The waiter was very helpful & pleasant. Thank-you for an enjoyable meal.17/02/2013 00:00:00Brilliant birthday mealAfter seeing mixed reviews about this restaurant I decided to take a gamble and arrange for a group of 8 of us to have my father birthday meal. We all had a variety of different meals. They took about 10 minutes from ordering to serving and the staff were very attentive. The only things I would say to stay away from is their ale, it's flat and stale (I didn't try any but everyone else on the table agreed its not very nice) I had a roast beef and have to say that their roast potatoes are the best I've eaten in a pub/ restaurant however their beef is a bit chewy and could do with being served with a steak knife.
Overall the portion sizes were good, the food was good, the staff did not rush us and the cost for 8 people was very reasonable.10/02/2013 00:00:00After booking on line I checkedAfter booking on line I checked some reviews and was apprehensive if I`d done the right thing. I was very satisfied with the food and service throughout our visit and found no problems at all.09/02/2013 00:00:00Lovely food and lovely, friendlyLovely food and lovely, friendly service. It was very busy (a good sign) so quite cramped but otherwise great,03/02/2013 00:00:00Lovely treatIf you book, make sure you mention if you are disabled so you can get a table on entry level. The food was extremely tasty. The portions look smaller because they are on a huge plate but portion size is adequate. The waiters were exceptional. Friendly and helpful and very attentive, even when the place filled up fast.....they remained calm. I would recommend this place for 2 reasons, the service and the food was extremely tasty.12/01/2013 16:00:00
