Traditional village pub

I like it here. It's casual, frequented by locals (usually a good sign) and the food is pretty good for a village pub. The meat is from the local butchers and highly recommended.

Nearest beach

Bembridge Beach (¼ mile)

A wide expanse of beach which follows the coast from the spit at the end of the harbour. Sand is exposed at low tide and a sandbank extends into the Solent. Car parking is available behind the beach and it is a short walk into the village. Dogs are allowed year round. There is no lifeguard cover.

Nearest walk

Bembridge Village Stroll (¼ mile)

A two mile meander around the village of Bembridge, taking in the historic windmill and, if the tide is out Bembridge beach. The route takes in the Lifeboat station on the beach which opens to the public during the summer holidays. The route starts and finishes at the Pilot Boat Public House, ideal for refreshments,

Nearest town

Bembridge (¼ mile)

The most easterly point of the island, this friendly town is full of beaches that are dog-friendly year-round with pubs to stop in when you've had your fill of fresh sea air. There's lots of places to eat as well as shops for local ingredients to make the most of your self-catering stay.

Lovely village

The centre of the village is where you'll find the majority of the shops including some decent cafes, a fish monger, great butcher (Woodfords) and a lovely bakery. It is like going back in time; in a good way.

Also nearby

The Pilot Boat Inn (¼ mile)

Situated on Bembridge Harbour, pay a visit to this unusual inn which looks like a boat (you need to see it for yourself!). A friendly welcome awaits along with an open fire in winter and outside seating in summer. Children are welcome and there is a kids menu available. Dogs are also made welcome. There are two sunny terraces at the back and bench seating at the front.

Quirky Building

It is actually built in the shape of a boat which is quite cool. There's a bit of seating outside but mostly inside, although it's quite small so there aren't that many tables. Menu is limited but that's not necessarily a bad thing as food is freshly cooked to order.

Tollgate Cafe (¼ mile)

An old fashioned cafe situated on the harbour side with views across the water. Food is prepared to order and whilst you are waiting you can chat to locals or look around the many souvenirs on sale. Limited parking is available but there is parking on the road. Dogs are welcome and there is ample outside seating on summer days.

Quaint place

It's old fashioned but in a lovely location overlooking the harbour. It's best to go when it's sunny and you can sit outside.

Lily's Cafe (2 ¼ miles)

An Artisan coffee shop in the heart of Seaview just a short stroll away from the seafront. Enjoy homemade cakes, biscuits, panninis, salads and quiche. Pop in for a well earned snack if you are walking around the coast or spending the day of the beach.

Lovely spot

Located on the High Street, this eclectic cafe serves good coffee and a great variety of snacks and cakes baked fresh daily. It's a bit of a tardis and looks small from the outside but there's loads of seating to the rear.

The Culver Trail (½ mile)

This circular three and a half mile walk will take you around the village of Bembridge and on to the downs of Culver cliffs with panoramic views across the bay. Start off from Bembridge Windmill and follow the route from the visit Bembridge website.

Lovely scenery

I did this walk in May time and it was lovely, great views from the top on Culver and there's even a cafe for a well deserved cuppa. Watch out for fields with cows in. Paths may be muddy during winter.

Seaview Beach (2 ¾ miles)

Nestled between Seagrove Bay and Priory Bay, you'll find a mixture of sand and pebbles with large beach at low tide. Parking is nearby along the esplanade with small shops and cafes in Seaview down the road. Dogs are not allowed from May to the end of September. There is no lifeguard cover.

Old fashioned in the best possible way

This beach is always popular with lots of rocks for crabbing off, an easy part to get into the sea and a sandy bit for games
