Our second visit to the island and not a chance of being in any other establishment with the girls. The Purple Turtle is going to be tattooed on our teenagers as they fell in love with it the very first time. Lena just can't get enough of the sausages and mash.....needs to be renamed " Banger Jackson with mash ".... More

Recommend the 'Purple Turtle ' Cocktail it will knock your socks off! Friendly staff serving and in a decent location on the steep hill leading up from Old Town - a drink is just what you need after the ascent!

The menu looks nice with stuff like steak rolls and stuff. We got the Sunday roast, everything was lovely except the beef, it was sandwich beef and pretty cold and tough. Potatoes, roasties and Yorkshire pudding were perfect though. The meat REALLY let it down. Staff are nice and friendly though

We have used the Purple Turtle on previous visits and we always look forward to returning here. It's such a relaxed place and the staff are so friendly. Wether it's just a beer snack or evening meal it's a lovely experience. Very reasonably priced as well.
