Eating out is one of the pleasures of being on holiday and eating out on the Isle of Wight is a real treat. Whatever your budget, whatever the time of year, the Island can be trusted to serve up something special.

Stop at one of the Island's many picturesque villages for a traditional cream tea. Chances are the scones will be home-made and topped with farm-fresh cream and jam from local producers.

Whether you like simple country cooking, continental food or something more exotic, the options are endless.

Tucked away in a sleepy village, in the high street of a Victorian town or on a beach in a secluded cove overlooking the sea, you can be sure of an idyllic setting wherever you eat on the Island.
