Prices of eating out

Don't go out to eat then! If you do, don't moan about the price of what you have chosen. Stay at home and watch free Netflix, it is free, isn't it???

The pix item does look a bit of a mess though!!!

I would have tried to guess the price had I been able to make out what was actually on the plate.

Still, at least it was on a plate rather than a poncy piece of wood or slate that adds nothing to the experience. Except, perhaps, to the bill...

They say "The first bite is with the eye" in which case I would have gone hungry and been grateful for it...

New menu at a local pub.

What do we reckon this costs?

Guess away.

 It doesn't look very appetising or maybe thats just me,  l was taken back by the price what portion of our island can actually afford those prices especially now? They of course have many overhead costs, but even so.

Maybe, for a bit of a challenge l wonder what amazing meal could be produce for just a few pounds!  Just a thought.

The food hospitality industry on the IoM is poor.  They have got away with serving sub-par, overpriced food for many years, and worst of all they do it with a smile, especially brewery pubs.  We don't even have a 1 star Michelin restaurant on the IoM and, that shows how poor some of the supposedly top restaurants on the IoM perform.  Wales has 3, Scotland 10, England 166, Northern Ireland 9, Jersey 1 and Guernsey 1.  I believe, if the food was quality, people would pay the prices, but unfortunately it's not and the industry only have they themselves to blame.  I have stopped eating out for that very reason. Expect nothing and you won't be disappointed

IMO you just can't beat decent fish & chips, when I was a lad in the 60's the Island was replete with decent chippies.

Who really needs Michelin stars? F&C in the car next to the beach - doesn't get much better.

Not many chippies left now.

Can't afford the fish and chips now.

Can't afford the fuel to get the car to the beach now.

Endgame. 😂

Very sweeping generalisation. There are several very good eating establishments on the island. Forget the Michelin star point as I don't think that's really a sustainable business on the island, maybe could support one at best.

Lots of negative comments here about brewery pubs but couldn't get in one down south the other week, the ones in Port Erin and Castletown both full. Monday night too. Not even a seat for a drink in the Station.

And wrapped in old newspaper.

That’s got more to do with there being literally nowhere else to eat in either Castletown or PE in the evening. Brewery food is overpriced crap and they wouldn’t survive anywhere else in the UK.

This is the Cat. It's a pub run by a brewery. They don't care about food, they only care about money.

The food at the Cat is usually pretty good. Better than most brewery pubs

Others not far out Shore, Andreas, Indian in PSM
