Pooch Perfect

The Island is a paradise for dogs (and their owners) with plenty of beautiful walks, places to explore, designated dog-friendly beaches and a whole host of places to take pooch out for a slap-up meal…

The Buddle Inn, Niton, is one of the most dog-friendly pubs on the Island. Here you will find a mini-menu for your four-legged friend featuring Oscar and Pet’s Bistro food and treats. On the menu for owners, there is plenty of local produce and seasonal specials. Afterwards, you will also find a lovely walk right opposite, down to St Catherine’s Lighthouse and Castlehaven.

After a spot of sightseeing along Winkle Street, The Sun Inn, Calbourne, is the perfect pit stop for tired legs. Dogs are warmly greeted by the landlord and resident pub-dog, with a dog-friendly menu and blankets for cold or wet doggies. You can relax with a bite to eat and a glass of something nice.

Take your dog to meet The Cow at Tapnell Farm. Dogs are welcomed in the restaurant with treats and water bowls, as well as blankets and cushions to keep them comfy. Whilst they are being looked after, you can tuck into some delicious dishes including steaks, burgers and some classic restaurant favourites.

For a dog’s dinner with a difference, Off The Rails in Yarmouth is the place to go. Walk the old railway line before settling down in the converted station building with a bite for you and one for the dog too. Puddings are not limited to just human customers either, thanks to the range of Billy + Margot dog ice creams on offer.

Dogs are welcome at the popular Seaview Hotel situated in this pretty seaside village. Although not allowed in the main restaurant, they are welcome in both The Pump Bar and The Naval Mess. When the sun is shining, take your tea outside to the terrace and look out towards Seagrove beach – where dogs are allowed all year round.
