It was all locked up when we arrived for our booking !!! Shame I’d been waiting to try this place for quite some time !
We booked a table for 2 a few weeks prior to visiting. When arriving we were the only table, a completely empty restaurant. Instead of calling and cancelling our table we were welcomed with a friendly manager, hot fresh food, and a warm, inviting atmosphere. Such a shame for the local business, but I’m glad our custom was welcomed and valued. Wonderful carvery, quick service.
first class food and service
The service was excellent and food was good too, also felt safe
Love the Island Pool , staff always courteous and food tasty. Only minor criticism is I would have liked more choice of hot desserts but plenty of choice of cold ones.
Excellent food as usually. Staff were friendly and helpful.
very good well social distanced i would go again and would tell my friends the same. Im booking again for next sunday.

Excellent carvery. staff friendly and efficient service.
Up to the usual high standard over the years despite covid 19 restrictions.
Gorgeous food, lovely staff. Highly recommend
After sanitizing your hands perhaps some paper towels to dry them. Also I didn't see any track and trace system or made knowledgeable of one. This review is not meant as a criticism as we intend to return to The Island Pool.
Lovely pub, great food and value.
Really enjoyed the evening the food good .
Best carvery ever. So glad it’s back!!
The food standard, as a whole, was very good. The Carvery Beef was tough and chewy.
Excellent food and service thank you
Very good service, friendly clean and welcoming. Most importantly, great food
Shame covid has changed the atmosphere of the pub but the food is still excellent
Visited yesterday for a Sunday carvery. Best carvery we have had for a very long time, food was superb and all distancing measures in place were spot on, we will definitely be back soon
Lovely food.wifes plate was full she had abit of everything, woman plated hers.guy who carved the meat plated mine,my plate could have done with more food on to be honest didn't like to ask for more.thats why I'd rather plate my own.
Visited for the 1st time, very friendly staff, lovely carvery and great value for money.
Fantastic value, extremely helpful staff, good quality and quantity
Nice to be back after lock down..... Covid protocol in action..... Carvery food plated by chef for you..... All the food cooked well and tasty. Half price courtesy of Gov.!!! Hope they can soon put all the tables back to help with profits.
Friendly and helpful staff, good food, good value and very pleasant environment
Great way to start the weekend, with an Island Pool breakfast. Attentive staff, scrummy food and all such good value. Cleanliness clearly a top priority, don’t hesitate to book.
Wonderful meal excellent value for money Staff were very pleasant Social distancing and hand sanitizer stations well placed
Fantastic as always
Perhaps baguettes could be added to the menu if carvery is not preferred
Thought had been given to ensuring new guidelines being adhered to and felt very comfortable with the whole experience
Fantastic food. Great value. Definitely would go again.
We couldn’t wait to get back to your carvery and it didn’t disappoint. We felt completely safe, the staff seemed happy to be back, the food was delicious, well done, we will definitely be back, best wishes.
Great food, all precautions all place for customer safety. Well done
