The Wight Mouse Inn

Church Place, Chale, Isle of Wight, PO38 2HA

Family owned free house and restaurant in Chale, The Wight Mouse Inn offers a range of high quality foods and accommodation. The Wight Mouse was originally known as The Clarendon Hotel and was named after a famous shipwreck in the nearby waters when the ship Clarendon sunk in Chale Bay.

There is plenty here for the whole family, with a play area outside and handily, an inside area when the weather takes a turn. The menu serves up home cooked favourites, sharing platters, as well as good choice for gluten free and smaller/children’s appetites. As well as a warm welcome, there are regular quizzes and occasional live music to keep everyone entertained.

The Wight Mouse Inn is a great base to begin exploring along the southern stretch of the Island for walkers, cyclists and families. After a lazy lunch go out and see just what this rugged stretch of coast has to offer. For walkers, there is the Tennyson Trail which can be joined at Compton Down along the Military Rd which is accessible by bus. This area of outstanding national beauty leads on to Afton Down, Freshwater Bay and onto the westbound coastal path to Tennyson Down, the Tennyson monument and past the Needles Battery to Alum Bay.
