Eat and Drink in Isle Of Wight
The mellow climate ensures that the Isle of Wight is home to a huge variety of local produce; the freshest seafood straight from the fisherman's catch, locally brewed beer, wine and cider, organic fruit and vegetables and delicious locally made ice creams and desserts.
The Isle of Wight has an abundance of quality food and drink produce and dining establishments that are renowned for their use and support of local produce. The Royal Isle of Wight Society has launched the Wight Marque as a sign of provenance for the Isle of Wight. The recognisable logo clearly identifies individual products, producers and establishments so that buyers can be assured that where they see the Wight Marque logo, it is truly local.
Whether it’s a romantic dinner for two, a special occasion or the traditional family Sunday lunch – we all enjoy a good restaurant meal and the Isle of Wight offers a wealth of good quality venues. Pubs, hotels and restaurants used to be very different classes of establishment, but these days it’s sometimes hard to know which is which.
Take The Yachtsman; once primarily a hotel, this popular venue still has five-star accommodation for guests, but is perhaps better known as a location for an intimate meal. The Leconfield in Ventnor welcomes non-residents to dine on AA rosette standard cuisine and unwind in comfort while enjoying a spectacular sea view. For a truly waterside dining experience The Hut at Colwell Bay and The Waterfront at Totland Bay both reside by the water’s edge.

Pubs and Bars
There’s nothing better to follow up a bracing walk through some of the Island’s countryside than stopping off at a rural pub. Enjoy the rural setting or the Sun at Calbourne with novel model railways and an abundance of country walks.
Cafes and Delis
Cakes, biscuits, scones and afternoon teas are a highlight of any break. The Isle of Wight is packed full of independent cafes and tearooms, serving up homemade lunches and sweet treats.
