The Forum Café

Brading Roman Villa, Morton Old Road, Brading, Isle of Wight, PO36 0PH

Appetising, locally sourced food and friendly, efficient service. Daily specials and hearty favourites, all prepared on site. The Romans were renowned for their love of fine food and feasting so there is nowhere more perfect to sate a hungry stomach than in the ancient Roman grounds at Brading. The Forum Café is privy to some stunning panoramic views over Sandown Bay and serves up a great range of lunches, snacks, cakes and drinks. Once you’ve had your fill of Roman mosaics, ancient ruins and beautiful rolling countryside, head to the café where you’ll be tempted by a plethora of homemade cakes and slices, speciality teas and coffees, locally produced cider and ales and a range of freshly filled baguettes and sandwiches. A daily specials board of hearty favourites and children’s options including a ‘Wicked Roman’ lunch bag are also available.
