Eating out on the Isle of Wight

The options for eating out are wide and various.  There are many options within walking distance of Westbury Lodge.  Too many to mention them all but here are just a few suggestions;

Modern British – The Cottage and Pendeltons.  Both restaurants are small so you must book in advance.

Pubs – The Crab, Fishermans Cottage, The Steamer Inn and the Waterfront

World Cuisine – Italian - Pavarottis and Amici, Thai - Thai Mukta, Indian Cinnamon and House of Spice

Fish and chips are, of course, available.  AJ’s is great for take-away or Bayside if you want to eat your fish and chips on the beach or overlooking the sea!

Blueberrys Cafe - a must visit for delicious home made cake and great views.  Check their facebook page to see which flavours are available.

Further afield

Pointer Inn, Newchurch, The Duck, Ryde, The Blacksmith Arms, Newport,  The Crab & Lobster, Bembridge.


No visit to the Isle of Wight is complete without a cream tea!  You will find them served all over the Island.

The Island prides itself on its great food and many of the attractions have really good cafes and restaurants serving local produce.  Two of our favorites are The Garlic Farm and Bluebells at Briddlesford Lodge Farm.

The Island also boasts its own distillerys and vineyard.  The Isle of Wight Distillery makes the delicious and popular Mermaid Gin.   There are two Vineyards to visit – Rosemary Vineyard and Adgeston Vineyard.

We also brew lots of local delicious beer – Yates, Quarr Abbey, the Island Brewery and Goddards brew a range of beers.  These are available in local supermarkets as well as pubs and restaurants.

There are many more excellent café’s pubs and restaurants.  Visit isleofwight.co.uk for more suggestions
