Nearest pub

The Crown Inn (1 ¾ miles)

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.

Nearest beach

Whale Chine (2 ½ miles)

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.

Nearest walk

Chillerton Down Circular Walk (1 ¼ miles)

Set off in a circle around a spot in the centre of the south of the island. It'll take a couple of hours but is dog friendly but the views are far reaching as you trek over hill and down dale. The National Trust has a free downloadable route on their website.

Nearest town

Godshill (2 ¾ miles)

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.

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.

Parkhurst Forest (5 ¾ miles)

A large area of woodland maintained by the Forestry Commission. There's miles of woodland walks suitable for both walkers and mountain bikers. The red squirrel hide is a great place to spot wildlife from.

Beautiful place to walk the dog and the kids!

The Old Village Inn (11 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.

Fabulous friendly staff

We used this pub several times as a large family group, with young children and baby. The landlord couldn’t have been more helpful and ensured everyone was happy. The chef was also willing to adapt meals to suit and the serving staff quick and efficient. A really great place to grab a meal.

Friendly, welcoming, something for everyone.

Fabulous find in the village centre. Wide and varied menu, catering for most dietary needs. Staff are incredible. We ate here twice in a row, but I have no doubt that if you were in the area for a week you wouldn't run out of options.

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.
