What's been described as an "exciting" new addition to the Isle of Wight's dining scene is to open its doors for the first time tomorrow (Monday). 

Offering "affordable global street food", Charter Lounge is coming to Charter House in St Thomas' Square, Newport.

The announcement brings an end to the mystery surrounding a Facebook page, called Newport's Newest.

For weeks, it has been teasing the launch of Newport's 'hottest new venue' and the town's 'worst kept secret'.

Jake told the County Press: "We decided to bring something Newport's been missing - an affordable global street food joint with an evening drink offering.

"This is going to be one of the sexiest places in Newport to hang out."

Charter Lounge will offer both dine-in and takeaway and will serve up dishes from tacos to Asian foods.

By night, the pair say the venue will transform "with an enticing drink selection".

Jake and Pete took over the The Sun Inn in Calbourne, in May, succeeding previous landlords, Kate Goldson and David Whittaker, who retired after 17 years.

They will continue at the pub alongside Charter Lounge.

The restaurant opens from 8am tomorrow (Monday).
