The Reef is a bar, restaurant and accommodation situated on Sandown Esplanade, just a stones throw away from the beach. There is a contemporary seating area inside and a spacious decking area at the front perfectly is positioned to see the stunning views of Sandown Bay.

We have a fully stocked bar and we serve Fosters, Estrella, Bombardier, Stowford Press, Guiness and Peroni on draught, all sold at very competitive prices. We also have a great wine list encompassing your favourite wines and a few you may not have tried before. Please make sure to take a look at our wine list and drinks list for variety and prices.

The food here is homemade from only the freshest local ingredients and we serve from 12 noon to 9pm. Make sure you check the restaurant page for more information on our menu and how to book.

Well behaved children are welcome throughout the daytime and evening, and dogs are allowed on the decking.

Here at the reef we pride ourselves on the quality of our food and cook to order so you can enjoy the freshest local ingredients possible. The Reef’s menu aims to cater for everybody with fresh fish, pastas, salads, steaks, stone baked pizzas, healthy children’s meals and many more delightful dishes.

Our lunch time menu is also very popular and includes fresh sandwiches, deli portions of our pastas and other light bites, all designed to give you great variety without compromising our high quality.

From 6pm onward we operate table service meaning once you are seated you will be made to feel comfortable and have someone looking after you from the moment you walk in to the moment you leave. Bookings are advisable for the evenings as tables do fill up quickly inside.
