Italian Restaurant
“Bonchurch Inn is quirky, no frills but the Italian food served is the best on the Island having been prepared by the family owners. I recommend the Spinach Canneloni with a good bottle of red wine. Friendly welcome, Courage beer in kegs behind the bar, a few locals-reserve a table in the main bar. Not suitable for very young children although in the Summer months you can sit outside comfortably for lunchtimes.”
