Places to Eat
Cafe’s and Restaurants
The Isle of Wight is known for its fantastic fresh local produce, including seafood straight from the fisherman’s catch, varieties of organic fruit and vegetables, locally brewed beers, wines, and ciders, and even its own island ice-cream producer. With all these great local ingredients to hand, the island is full of fantastic places to eat and drink.
For a family fun day out, get over to Tapnell Farm park where there really is something for everyone; let the little ones play in the multi storey soft play barn, visit the exotic animals, and then enjoy eating in the restaurant bar serving fine local produce.
If fine dining is your thing then Thompson’s may have something to tickle your taste buds.. Head chef Robert Thompson was the youngest to achieve a Michelin star (no we’re not talking about tyres..)
Head to The garlic farm and try the many varieties of famous, award winning Isle of Wight garlic.
Venture to Steephill Cove, Ventnor for fresh caught crab, lobster and mackerel at The Crab Shed – their crab pasties have become some what of a tourist attraction!
When looking to refuel after your intense racing you will be spoilt for choice, there is an abundance of fantastic cafes’. Bluebells at Briddlesford is a licensed cafe situated in a converted barn, on a working dairy farm. With their own Briddlesford milk, and cream you’ll be sure to get a quality scone and tea! If you’ve had enough action days out, then perhaps a visit to Warren Farm shop and Tea Garden on the quieter side of the Island will suit you.
