Excellent food and great staff

This is a great place to eat as it has some lovely dishes and has a specials board. We tried the sea bass which was so nice we returned for a second helping! Our party also tried the fish of the day which was a whole sea bream, again delicious. The shell on prawns, the fish and chips and the crab ramekin were also really nice and the bread served here was gorgeous and you get plenty of butter. The chocolate brownie dessert was a triumph too. All of this, plus it is dog friendly! Definitely recommended to try.

The Old Fort Seaview

Lovely seaside pub with outside sitting area. Enjoyed the food, but you do need to book ahead as they get very busy and its OK to sit outside if it is a balmy summer evening.

Nice but....

We never got to actually eat in this pub. We did try several times but we were either too late or too early and they weren't serving food and then on our last evening there we were told no dogs after 6pm so we couldn't get a table. To be honest we did rather feel that sailing club members were given priority over holiday makers and that we were a bit of a nuisance that is tolerated rather than encouraged.

Nearest beach

Seaview Beach (½ mile)

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

Nearest walk

Seaview to Ryde Walk (¼ mile)

Park your car anywhere on the Esplanade at Seaview and walk past the Boathouse pub with the sea on your right. You will pass rows of beach huts, woodland and into Puckpool Park. The sea views are stunning across the Solent to the mainland and the park itself is a gem. The path hugs the coast all the way around to Ryde, past Appley beach with its gothic tower and into the town. You'll find lots of places to eat and drink en-route, the path is even and flat so suitable for pushchairs. Dogs are allowed on the footpaths but restricted on the beach so do check the signs. The return walk is approx 2 miles depending how far into Ryde you walk and the best return route is back the way you came.

Enjoyable walk

With the sea to look at and all the activity on it along the way it is a very enjoyable walk. When the tide is out you can shorten the walk by cutting across the beaches. If you walk along the paths you will pass a small nature reserve which can be visited by all, a couple of pubs, The Boathouse looked good, a cafe which we went in called The Dell and recreations. The area named Appley has a Coastal Foley and woods to walk through. The beach at Ryde is large and sandy, and Ryde has many places for refreshments after your walk. You can continue your walk along the pier, which is free for pedestrians. We estimated the distance to be a little over 2 miles, we took our time and enjoyed the views.

Nearest town

Seaview (200 yards)

On the easterly side of the island, this small idyllic village overlooks the Solent and has three beaches to choose from. There's an eclectic assortment of shops including a gallery, boutique and local village community shop, supplying fresh daily produce. Lily's Cafe offers up a good coffee stop, call in to the Seaview Hotel for upmarket dining or try The Old Fort for views of the sea. And dogs are most welcome.

Quaint little village by the sea

A lovely village with a yacht club, great sea views and pebbly/sandy beach. It is a nice walk to Ryde approx 2 miles along the coast. Only a handful of places to eat (London prices) and the volunteer run community shop is open part time only. Great for a few days with sea views bit quiet. You need to go in to Ryde or elsewhere for a convenience store or selection of places to eat.

Also nearby

Lily's Cafe (¼ mile)

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.

Laughably Expensive

The owners have squashed in as much furniture and bric-a-brac as possible which makes for an uncomfortably 'cosy' ambience.

Although the fayre is good, it's not exceptional, the wait is long and the organisation is questionable. The prices charged would give one the impression that everything is gold plated. More realistic prices would lead to greater footfall and higher profits but then they'd have to get rid of some of the 'stuff' crammed in there and they'd have to organise themselves more effectively.

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.

Seaview Village Community Shop (¼ mile)

A recently opened community shop offering local produce, newspapers, fresh fruit, veg and milk. It's ideally situated in the middle of Seaview and a great place to stock up. They are only open mornings until Easter and then will extend to all day until October.

This shop was open at 2 set times during the day, and we were pleased to see it was open until 18.30 when we stayed in Sept. They have a great choice of local produce including dairy items, the milk and Greek yogurt we had was delicious. The fruit was fresh and good quality, plus on sale were various dry goods and newspapers. A great selection of items. We will use the shop again if we return to Seaview.

Great Little Local Shop

A new community shop recently opened in the heart of the village. It offers fresh fruit and vegetables, milk, bread and other local produce. This is the perfect place to get provisions in Seaview and saves a trip to the supermarket in the car.

Seagrove Beach (½ mile)

A real gem in the Isle of Wight's crown, Seagrove Beach has a gently sloping sandy shore with rocky outcrops. An untamed stretch of coast, this safe-swimming beach is often quiet and provides a real haven of tranquility. Enjoying beautiful vistas, Seagrove Beach is a sight for sore eyes and there are toilets and a cafe for your convenience. The easiest access is via Seaview village, with a short walk from there. Dogs are welcome year-round.

Perfect for a family gathering

Large sandy beach, with a very gradual slope down into the sea, so ideal for young and old alike.

One disadvantage is that there is no shade, so take a sun umbrella along.

Hidden gem

We booked a weeks holiday in a cottage in Seagrove and didn’t realise how amazing the beach was going to be. The water is clean and clear and as we had super hot weather most of the week we were able to swim and play in the water with our small grandchildren. There are lovely walks in both directions and the beach is safe and not too crowded. The children loved seeing the local horse riding school take their route along the beach.

The Old Village Inn (2 ¼ miles)

This pub is slap bang in the middle of Bembridge village and is popular with locals and visitors alike. Parking is fine on the roads nearby. The menu is created using food locally sourced in the village so expect seasonal, fresh produce. Specials change daily and include fish fresh from the local harbour. A pizza oven is the latest addition so freshly made pizza is also on the menu.

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.

The Vine Inn (1 ½ miles)

Located in a comanding position In St Helens with views across the village green you can spend a relaxing evening sitting outside at a bistro table watching the local teams play cricket. A combination of activities take place each week in the pub with a quiz night on Wednesdays and live music to entertain you on Fridays and Saturdays. Food is served daily and offers a range of local dishes along with pizza for both eat in or take away. As with most places in the area, dogs are welcome.

Great pub on your doorstep

We went to The Vine several times during our stay, as we arrived, for Sunday lunch and Thursday evening. Food and service was brilliant, they welcomed our dog, who even had her own chicken breast cooked for Sunday lunch. Great activities in the Evening, bingo on a Thursday, live music on a friday and Easter activities for the children.
