The location of attractions is intended only as a guide. Distances are 'as the crow flies'.

Nearest pub

A busy sea front pub with live music most evenings and Sundays. Seafood is a speciality on the menu and there is also a daily specials board. Dogs and muddy boots are welcome.

Nearest beach

With no access by car this pretty little cove has managed to stay unspoilt. It's a gentle quiet place with a collection of cottages and a cafe and restaurant (only open during the summer). To get there walk from either Ventnor Esplanade along the coast path or down Love Lane. Dogs are allowed from May to the end of September but must be on a lead. There is no lifeguard cover.

Nearest walk

Under two hours of discovering cold war bunkers and military secrets on a steep and difficult 2.6 mile challenge. The National Trust have put together a great free download to help.

Nearest town

Ventnor is the place to go if you enjoy a vibrant arts scene or botanical gardens. It seems a little warmer here all year-round, hence the flora and plentiful fish make it a great spot for anglers. Most of the island crab comes from here.

Great Atmosphere

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.

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.

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.

This gem of a place is located centrally on the Island and offers a loving and forever home to donkeys. Open daily, entry is free and you can wander the site to say hello to over 100 donkeys and ponies. Dogs are welcome and Grazers Cafe offers refreshments. Donations to support the sanctuary are very 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.

Great choice

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

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.

Really good pub with great staff. A constructive criticism would be that modifications and updating can sometimes detract from that old world pub character that we love. Still very good and highly recommended, but could be even better.

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.

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.

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.

Well worth the walk

We walked down here with a 10 and 12 year old. Following the costal path signs
Not for those with mobility issues or a fear of heights as steep steps leading down with large rocks at the bottom but lovely when you get there very peaceful Beware of the cows in the field as they didn't appreciate people in the field!!!
