This pub is in a great location for walkers and cyclists on the southern most stretch of the island. With good food and a relaxed atmosphere be sure to pop in. There's a large outside seating area for warmer months. Dogs are welcome.
We ate several times at the 'mouse. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food is very good and the portions significant. A good food menu and selection of beers. Overall, excellent value for money and well staffed with good service even when busy.

Very nice pub good food and décor, friendly had two good meals in the pub
Situated at the bottom of a steep ravine, this beach is popular with anglers looking to fish for mackerel and bass. Access is via steps carved into the cliff and a rope so great care should be taken! It is possible to walk from Atherfield about two miles up the coast. Good for fossil hunting but watch the tide. Dogs are allowed and there is no lifeguard cover.
This trail is a delighful six mile ramble with starting points at either Blackgang Chine Viewpoint car park, Chale Green or The Wight Mouse Inn, if you are a customer. The trail takes in cliff- top footpaths, fields and woodland with small amount of walking along roads. Collect a leaflet from Chale Green Stores and follow the map around some of the best countryside the Island has to offer.
Come here for the quintessential cream tea holiday, with thatched rooftops and picnics on the village green. There are plenty of tearooms to sample homemade cakes or have a tipple in the tiny cider shop, before walking off the treats in this picturesque location.
Great outing with the grandchildren
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the model village. The gift shop there is very good and relieved the children of some of their holiday money for fairly priced knickknacks.
As we visited on a Monday some tea rooms were closed but we were pleasantly surprised at the quality and value of the food at the cafe in the car park.
Walk to Godshill
Walked from the cottage to Godshill, it's a lovely walk and village to explore. We particularly enjoyed the Model Village. All dog friendly too.

The Old Fort Seaview
Pub / restaurant
Great views, tasty vegan food
We booked in advance having seen reviews about it being busy, glad we did it was full. We were lucky to get window table, wonderful view, relaxed environment, friendly efficient staff. Great to gave vegan options and can recommend the quality chilli. Would certainly go again!
Ate here twice during our weeks stay in Seaview. Even though we hadn’t booked the first time we went, which was a busy Saturday lunch time and we were a party of 6 including a 3 year old, we were given a warm welcome and seated with no problems. We had great service and the food was delicious on both occasions. We booked for our second visit as it seems to be a very popular place, understandably given the quality of the food and the service. Very family friendly too with a great buzzy atmosphere, would highly recommend a visit.
Great food and atmosphere
Excellent food and wine list, very helpful staff, not to be missed

Food great and great location
Lovely location on seafront and food was excellent. Staff friendly and attentive too.
Lovely views, friendly staff, nice food
We visited a couple of times and enjoyed it. Great view!
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
Great food, lovely staff and very welcoming
Two had ploughman's, one fish and chips, one sea bass. All excellent.
The new to the menu Lemon Posset was a delightful end to the meal.
Good quality, well priced
Good quality, well priced and varied menu, with indoor and outdoor seating. We had a whole fresh plaice, and pulled pork burger, and both were excellent. Decent wine list as well
Mrs Rachel Coleman
Excellent friendly service.
Lovely staff and food.
We usually go to the weekly curry night when we are on holiday
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.
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.
Set in the heart of the countryside, this pub has masses of parking, a huge kids play area, childrens menu and dogs are welcome. Three roaring log fires will keep you toasty in winter.
Meal at The Chequers Inn
We had a lovely meal at The Chequers Inn, the server was excellent, the staff were very friendly and the food was amazing. Very dog friendly
Best pub/restuarant we visited durring our stay.
Excellent food, good selection of beers and the friendliest staff you could wish to have serving you.
They made our border collie Mollie really welcome.
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.

If staying in Seaview please support this shop with its friendly staff.
Great selection. Lovely staff.
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.
A traditional country pub which uses local produce and even its own home grown herbs from a vegetable patch in the garden. There's a kids play area and a shop selling all sorts of local produce. Dogs are welcome.
A warm welcome
We booked for a meal at The Taverners after first visiting there for a drink earlier in the week. We received a warm friendly welcome and the food was excellent, plenty of choice with daily specials and a bit different to the norm. . The service was excellent and very prompt. Their local brew was also good. I would definitely recommend this establishment and would visit again when I am next on the Isle.
In an idylic setting the the village of Shorwell this pub offers traditional homemade food, real ales and a menu created using local produce. A log fire will keep you warm during winter and there's an outdoor play area in summer for children. Dogs are very welcome.
We had two very good meals at The Crown Inn. The food is very good with plenty of choice and the Specials were delicious. The staff are very efficient and sociable and it is very dog friendly there both inside and outside in the garden
