This Building with its Art Deco curved frontage has stood in the High Street in Sandown, Isle of Wight for many years. It is located just 2 minutes from the picturesque seafront, home to the glorious sandy beaches.
This place was formerly a bank which closed its doors in January 2012.
The bank was built with quality wooden panelling throughout which we were keen to keep as it was so tastefully done.
During the nine month renovations we removed the bullet proof glass and sheet metal but the original counter was kept as our bar. We wanted to keep as much of the original features as we could but open it all up. There are very large windows which gives the place lots of light and feeling of space.
We also have a separate room which is our restaurant but customers can dine in the bar if they wish.
Dogs are welcome in our bar area but we request they are kept on a lead.
We have a room we call the snug that was in fact the Managers Office. Many locals tell us they have been in there over the years to talk to the Manager!!! It is popular with people who want to sit back and relax and maybe feel like a home from home hopefully.
We also have built a large kitchen where our marvellous Chef creates very popular dishes. All our food is prepared fresh to order and we endeavour to use local Isle of Wight produce whenever available. We are happy to cater for specific dietary needs and our Chef is happy to alter dishes to suit our customers. When informed of any allergies we are happy to talk to the chef and come up with alternatives.
We like people to feel at home with our atmosphere of friendly staff and local customers where you can dine, have a drink, cup of tea, relax and maybe read the papers.
We sometimes have local singers and enjoy fun events and themed nights such as 70’s or 80’s or Halloween etc.
We have Free WiFi available and we provide a disabled toilet and baby changing facilities.
There is a small area to the rear of the property for outside sunshine or a smoke which has recently had a total overhaul. We hope your like the results…. We certainly do!
We hope you will pop in and see us and enjoy the company of locals and try our lovely food or just have a drink and a chat. Our aim was to create a happy friendly and comfortable feeling where anyone would feel at ease and we believe we have achieved that.
You can bank on us for good food, service with a smile and a great atmosphere
