As the nights draw in and the temperature drops, it’s time to seek solace in a warm pub, preferably with a roaring fire and a good beer on tap. Here’s our pick of the Island’s cosiest pubs to hunker down in.

The Dairyman’s Daughter, Arreton

Tucked away in the lee of the downs is this pretty pub. With one of the largest open fires and flagstone floors, this feels like stepping back in time. Throw in a good range of local ales and fine wines, perfect for a relaxed evening.

The Taverners, Godshill

Settle down by the fire and make the most of the amazing food on offer here. The roast dinner is legendary and booking is a must.

Ye Olde Village Inn, Bembridge

Nestled in the heart of Bembridge old high street, this quirky traditional-styled building is reputed to have been serving pints since 1787. Great for ale-lovers, they source ales from around the country and there are always four on pump.

The Sportsman’s Rest, Porchfield

Right in the heart of Porchfield is this traditional pub, complete with beams and low ceilings and the hint of a spooky history. The whole family are welcome, including the dogs.

I have grown up by the water and can’t imagine not living near the sea. A bbq on the beach looking out across The Solent is a great way to end a day.
