“Sounds too good to be true? I promise you, it’s the king’s coconuts – you will not want to leave. The fish is as fresh as the youthful dudes who work there, the kind of groovy bright young things who make the world sparkle. And as for the location, it simply doesn’t get any better.”

Chris Evans, Mail on Sunday

“The competitive quality of service and food has meant The Hut has established itself as one of the UK’s most iconic coastal destinations.”


“The food is simple and fresh, a blend of seafood and grilled meats, but it’s the buzzy atmosphere and pervading sense that you’re basking on sunny shores in climes far warmer and more exotic than on a slice of the Solent, that make this chicest of dining options a real must-visit.”

Anna Meyerowitz, Condé Nast Traveller

“If we take our boat out on the Solent, we might have a late lunch at The Hut at Colwell Bay on The Isle of Wight. It’s a gorgeous place to watch the sunset”

Amanda Wakely, The Daily Telegraph

St. Tropez meets Colwell Bay at this buzzing open-air restaurant. It’s only a 25-minute helicopter flight from Battersea (or 20 minutes from Lymington by boat), yet its white-and-rope décor looks straight out of the south of France, with azure waves to match. A seafood-heavy menu – devised by ex-Ned Chef Director Ian Daws – can almost be ignored; as a quick glance at other diners will confirm, at The Hut, you order rosé by the magnum and seafood by the platter. Go for the surf ‘n’ turf – a huge, head-turning stack of tender steak, garlicky lobster, plump prawns, bone marrow, chips, and well-dressed salad. It’ll easily feed three, but should you have room to spare, load up on moreish turbot tacos and chargrilled nduja octopus.
