On the south side of St Helens’ village green, with views across the Solent and beyond, this smart neighbourhood eatery opened in the summer of 2011. With chef/owner Dan Maskell at the stoves, and
wife Carla out front, expect some equally smart cooking backed by affable personal service. An islander born and bred, Dan used to rule the range at The Royal Hotel in Ventnor and has worked in
some impressive kitchens on the mainland. You could start with a pressed Moor Farm ham hock terrine with pickled vegetables and cider jelly, before sampling pan-fried local pollack with creamed
potatoes, brown shrimp and leeks. Desserts also combine comfort with innovation – witness orange cheesecake with rhubarb crumble and blood orange sorbet. That said, Dan’s best sellers are battered
fish with triple-cooked chips, and locally smoked haddock with spinach and quails’ egg risotto.
