Welcome to Fine Nammet, an award-winning contemporary British restaurant in Shanklin on the Isle of Wight

Paul and Jenna welcome you to Fine Nammet, a fine dining restaurant serving local produce. We hope it will be popular with locals and tourists alike.

All of our produce is purchased daily depending on what's available from farms, what has been caught and grown. All of our meats come from island farmers, the fish come from local waters and we use seasonal Isle of Wight vegetables. 

We have been very fortunate to be voted number one on the island by customers on trip advisor, and even more fortunate to be awarded the Island Luxe magazine 2014 editors pick fine dining award.

Welcome to a place where friends and family gather for good times and exceptional food. A place where dining out is something special. Welcome to Fine Nammet.

If this is your first time with us, we invite you to discover everything that makes Fine Nammet so appealing.

Enjoy your wines?...

We serve 17 wines by the glass all of which are quite new world, as is fitting with our style of restaurant. Amongst those on offer are Isle of Wight wines which come from Adgestone vineyard and have proven to be very popular this year. Our prices vary from house wine at £16.95 a bottle to our Neptune point at £23.99. We also serve individual bottles of Prosecco to start the evening, larger bottles of Prosecco and Jules Feraud & Co champagne for celebrating something special.


Our Selection of finely crafted food....

We believe that the fewer miles your food travels, the better the quality, the better the taste, the better for you. Everything on our menu is local and cooked to order from local meats from Brownrigg Farm, Kemphill farm and Dunsbury farm. Our fish comes from Hancocks fishmongers and our vegetables from a local lad who grows the most amazing vegetables in his back garden.
At Fine Nammet we like to offer British food with a modern twist, while at the same time ensuring the quality and freshness of our food by supporting local farmers and suppliers. And because Paul (the head chef and owner) wouldn't accept anything less....

Our Story....

How Fine Nammet was born....

Our head chef and owner, Paul, trained in the army as a chef for 6 years where he was quickly promoted to Lance Corporal. He started running the Sergeants’ mess in Germany at 20 years old then moved on to running the Officers’ mess in Cyprus. Cooking for generals and officers alike, he gained a very high standard of cooking and his attention to detail and passion for food were born.

Our Front of House lady and owner, Jenna, has been working in the hospitality trade since the age of 13. Knowing she had a huge passion for the business she always strived to be the best she could be and got promoted very quickly in any job.

It all began when they met each other and started running a small hotel on the Isle of Wight. Realising that they had more to offer they decided to move to the New Forest to run several pubs and did so successfully for four years. However, their dream was always to have their very own restaurant so they moved back to the island… when the premises in Shanklin became available they did not hesitate and their dream finally became a reality. They worked tirelessly for 4 weeks to bring the restaurant alive and to give it a warm and inviting feeling. With Jenna's friendly front of house experience and Paul's strict attention to detail and understanding of Fine Dining, we hope that all our customers will leave wanting to come back again.....
