The Blacksmiths

Calbourne Rd, Newport PO30 5SS, UK

The Blacksmith’s is a traditional family-run pub with an Island-wide reputation for excellent food and drink. The pub is located at the heart of the Island, just outside the village of Carisbrooke.

The pub is more than 400 years old and benefits from stunning panoramic views stretching across miles of open countryside to the Western Solent. You can even enjoy these breathtaking views whilst sampling the menu in the restaurant thanks to the large windows, making the most of the vista. Dogs are welcome and there is an outdoor children’s play area and parents patio.

The Blacksmiths is famous for homecooked food, especially the Newchurch pie and the Sunday roast dinner, which is served every Sunday from 12 noon until 6 pm, subject to availability.
