Despite the thunderstorm last night, the weather is finally turning and as thoughts turn to Summer, the Isle of Wight season is looking busy as ever and visitors are already plotting their dining reservations. 

One positive trend for locals and tourists who are looking outside the traditional summer window (visiting early May) – RT Cafe Grill is the NEW restaurant by Chef Robert Thompson MBE that doesn’t just serve seasonal engagements. The restaurant which opened in March has been buzzy and with the anticipated launch of the renowned Thompson’s in the same building (Royal Maritime House in Ryde) later this year, it will stay busy even after the beach crowds depart.

Chef Robert Thompson MBE is notably the youngest Chef to receive a Michelin star. Last year he was awarded an MBE for his services within the hospitality sector, for striving to create and cement a “foodie destination” image for the Island - Isle of Wight.

Restaurant Online reported: "The casual all-day venue will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner with dishes to include a grass-fed beef burger; linguini carbonara; and yellowfin tuna salad niçoise.

The interior will have an open kitchen and a long bar flanked with bar stools and bar tables looking out over the Solent that leads into the restaurant area. The dining area will have clothed tables, bistro-style chairs, oversized rattan ceiling lights and a snug area with banquette seating.'
