The school Christmas term finished at noon on Friday and so Husband-Gusto and I took Baby-Gusto out for lunch. We chose the Three Buoys in Ryde, a small restaurant down on Appley Beach in Ryde. It was a beautiful setting overlooking the sea.
It was a blustery day and so comfort food was the order of the day.
The fish fingers and chips from the children’s menu. The fingers were fresh fish fillets and the batter was speckled with seaweed which was a lovely touch.
Moules Marinieres with garlic chiabatta
But the standout meal was the butterflied fresh mackerel with a butternut squash risotto. Truly excellent.
Following this it was time for ic-ecreams and a stroll along the beach. Appley tower is always a pretty view.
This was a lovely way to mark the end of the school term and the start of the Christmas break. We all really enjoyed our lunch. The restaurant staff were relaxed and chilled, and the food was extremely good and fresh. Husband-Gusto had never been to the Three Buoys before, and he was very enthusiastic about a return. A win!
