The Lifeboat stands proudly over East Cowes Marina, which is a huge favourite of visiting yachtsmen in the summer, but also a family-friendly home-from-home for locals too. In the summer, their large outside decking area offers one of the best riverside dining experiences on the Island. Food at The Lifeboat is their speciality! They believe we have created the perfect balance of modern contemporary cuisine from around the world. Their extensive menu, alongside daily Specials, offers diners a wealth of options to suit all tastes – and their ‘Under 12s’ menu makes dining with the family a pleasure for everyone.

Wherever possible, they try to source our ingredients from local suppliers. Their indoor restaurant buzzes throughout the winter and on wetter days. In summer, their decking area is the perfect hangout for small groups or large parties – whether you come by sea or land, a hearty welcome awaits. Food is served throughout the day. Whilst The Lifeboat is known for its fantastic food and stunning waterfront location, it also features a well-stocked bar that’s hugely popular with residents and visitors alike. Real Ales and Enotria wines are served at the perfect temperature at the Lifeboat Leather sofas and comfortable armchairs in the bar area provide a home-from-home atmosphere, whilst their extensive decking area, overlooking the marina and the Medina River, makes The Lifeboat a truly unbeatable destination. This venue is also available for weddings, wakes, birthdays and sailing events.
