Good food coupled with relaxed informal dining is at the heart of the Seaview Hotel. They try to keep our food offering as ‘local’ as possible and work with a multitude of island suppliers.

What is the best thing about the Isle of Wight foodie scene?
It has to be Living Larder. The vegetables they produce are amazing and so fresh – they get picked in the morning and delivered within hours!

What is the one dish on your menu you keep coming back to?
Since I have taken over as Head Chef, the dish that I return again and again to is our hake dish with shellfish bisque, leek marmalade, confit tomatoes, samphire and fresh dill. I love it.  

What is your local tipple?
It has to be Mermaid Gin from the Isle of Wight Distillery. They have recently launched it in a new bottle too and it looks amazing.

Where is your favourite place, other than The Seaview Hotel, to eat on the Island?
The Three Buoys in Appley, Ryde. It’s a beautiful restaurant with an amazing view. The food is seasonal, well executed and simply delicious!

What is your favourite event on the Island?
It’s got to be the Isle of Wight Festival – whose isn’t?
