  • Your local guide to food and drink on the Isle of Wight

Pubs & Bars

Whether you are in search of real ales or fine wines; looking for hearty traditional pub grub or more contemporary cuisine, the Isle of Wight has the perfect pub to suit your taste.

With some of the most beautiful locations on the south coast, you can enjoy a cold glass of wine overlooking the sea or a lazy afternoon in a village pub garden. The pubs and bars are kept well-stocked by the local breweries, vineyards and a distillery, providing some excellent quality tipples. Many of our local pubs source their produce locally, you can try freshly caught seafood dishes; meats reared here on the Island; and fruit and veg grown in our fertile soils.
