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.

Situated on the waterfront of the Medina River in East Cowes, The Lifeboat is already one of the area’s most popular bars and restaurant. We offer a warm welcome to locals and visitors alike – from land or water! We are just a few minutes walk from Cowes Floating Bridge. In the summer, our large outside decking area offers one of the best riverside dining experiences on the Island.
