FOOD Reef repays its locals for loyalty There is a special incentive for locals to use The Reef on Sandown Esplanade. Regular customers are presented with a loyalty card by owners Mike and Emma Paine, and for every £ spent a point worth 5p is put on to the card. Then at any time customers can ‘cash in’ their points for food or drinks. Mike said: “The scheme has been running for about a year, and is proving very popular. Some customers are building up their points total so that when Christmas comes along they can enjoy a few ‘free’ drinks or as payment towards meals.” The Reef, just a pebble’s throw from Sandown beach, has a contemporary seating area inside and a spacious decking area at the front, and is perfectly positioned to see the stunning views of the bay. The fully stocked bar serves a variety of beers and lagers including Fosters, Estrella Damm Bombardier, Stowford Press, Guinness and Peroni on draught, and all at very competitive prices. There is also a fine wine list, while the extensive menu includes ‘Reef Favourites’, homemade stone baked pizzas, a fine selection of sea food, children’s meals and a Sunday Roast. Mike and Emma also have their Christmas menu available
