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.
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.
Best pub/restuarant we visited durring our stay.

They made our border collie Mollie really welcome.
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.

Situated in the delightful hamlet of Steephill this quaint coffee shop also sells all manner of beach goods, ice cream, sweets and more. Access is limited due to the steep path and steps to the beach.
Acess is a bit of a scramble but you are assured a nice quite spot here. The sand is red and white with large boulders and rocks. There are fabulous uninterrupted views over the Solent and the village of St Lawrence is close by.
