This place never disappoints. From the charcuterie to the hamburgers they are always delicious, even managing to amend the menu for my gluten free requirements. The wine list is also extensive and reasonably priced. Very friendly service and immaculately clean establishment. No hesitation to recommend.

This is a small intimate setting and a good place to meet locals and get a good feed and some of the better wines on the island. Family run and has lifted the game for eating and having a drink out on the island

Grenache Wine Bar is located in the heart of Cowes. Come in for a drink of wine (or take home a bottle), we also have beer on tap and accompany with sharing plates (tapas style) - cheese boards, meat platter, jalapeño croquettes and other tasty dishes. In winter sit by our cosy fire. We look forward to welcoming you at Grenache Wine Bar.
