Our food is outstanding
Well that’s the general verdict of our clients – and we succeed in satisfying the very healthiest of appetites!
We start by using only the best quality fresh produce (sourced locally whenever possible) which is then prepared by our experienced culinary team working from a spotless kitchen where even the walls are stainless steel for complete cleanliness.
Michael Savill, The Wight’s Head Chef
Savill, the Wight’s Head Chef for the past nine years (previously he served as 2nd Chef under Rod Stewart for 10 years) says: “The old Montrene had a terrific reputation for it’s food – and that’s a proud tradition upon which the The Wight is building. The owners are not only enthusiastic about the food we serve, they are also knowledgeable – a great benefit when striving for yet further improvement. Returning every night for an Evening Dinner has become less and less popular every year so, with the exception of the festive season, our speciality weekends (a Safari Weekend with Alligator, Ostrich, Wild Boar etc. and a Garlic Weekend with, yes, a great deal of Garlic!) and any time when we have large affinity groups, we no longer offer Evening Dinner but instead now concentrate on the needs of our core “residential” business – a superb breakfast*. The byproduct of that change is that we are now able to cater for weddings, birthday parties, association dinners etc. throughout the year – and when doing so our style is more Floyd or Jamie than Marco!”
* We claim to have the BEST BREAKFAST MENU ON THE ISLE OF WIGHT and, as the wording makes clear, if you also want it to be the BIGGEST BREAKFAST ON THE ISLE OF WIGHT then you are more than welcome!
