Crew Room


The Crew Room & Private Hire

The Crew Room seats up to 14 guests on two large adjoining tables, with a further two tables of two as it is. It can be used for group dining, or for everyday use (one table of 8, one table of 6 and two tables of 2).  Exclusive use of this room up to a maximum of 24 guests can be arranged with no hire fee, subject to availability and numbers. Numbers over this require the private hire of the restaurant for exclusive use, either on a half-day or full-day basis. 

Group Reservations

Please note that for group bookings of 8 people or more, we require credit card details at the time of booking. Should you need to cancel, we just ask that cancellations are received at least 48 hours prior to your booking. Any cancellations with less than 48 hours’ notice or no-shows will be charged £20 per person on the card details provided at the time of booking.

Group bookings of 13 people or more are also required to either pre-order from our a la carte menu or choose one of our chefs’ sharing menus of varying prices from £44 to £95pp. This can be a wonderful way to experience The Little Gloster as everyone gets to try a little something of everything.

A unique seaside venue offering stunning views of the Solent & spectacular sunsets throughout the restaurant and private garden, The Little Gloster is the perfect place to celebrate your special day.

The Little Gloster is an award-winning family-run restaurant with rooms offering panoramic sea views, in Gurnard, just five minutes west of Cowes.

Recently listed in both The Michelin Guide and The Good Food Guide 2018, The Little Gloster freshly prepares simple seasonal food in relaxed Scandinavian influenced surroundings and is well known for its passion for high-quality service & locally sourced produce.

Everything is made fresh to order, so we are able to accommodate any specific ideas you may have, as well as special dietary requirements.

Working with your ideas and budget, a meeting with one of our chefs would be arranged within the planning process and a personalised menu will be created.

The wine list is interesting, comprised of over 90% organic wines, and as part of the planning process, we will recommend wine matches/suggestions for your meal, working to your budget.

The cocktail and drinks list encompasses the same philosophy as the food and wine menu, which is well thought out and delivered, focusing on the seasons.

The Little Gloster offers three beautiful rooms onsite decorated in simple Scandinavian seaside elegance, all of which have sea views. All rooms feature super king beds, Egyptian cotton bedding & Nespresso coffee machines.

When booking the venue exclusively for a wedding, hire of the venue is required all day, due to the time required to prepare for the function, both front of house and in the kitchen.
