Catch of the day

With long hours of sunshine, rich and fertile soils and its southerly location, the Isle of Wight is a foodie paradise! Around our shores you will find foraged, seasonal and home-made delicacies, crab shacks, farm shops and roadside produce stands – all providing food fresh from our soil and seas. We are especially lucky to have such a wonderful choice of fresh, locally caught seafood. Low in fat, and utterly delicious, seafood is good for the the soul and your health! Oily fish are packed with Omegas which are great for your heart and shellfish contain vital micronutrients like zinc, which helps immunity and selenium, a fantastic antioxidant. So here's our favourite places to enjoy a fresh catch of the day...

The Hut

The Hut is an easy-going beach restaurant that combines an unrivalled passion for simple yet delicious food, with a desire to create a relaxed but stylish environment for all to enjoy and offers a more exciting approach to seaside dining on the Isle of Wight. Just down the road from us in beautiful Colwell Bay, enjoy stunning sunsets while you dine - order the Fruits de Mer for the ultimate seafood experience.

Steephill Cove

Hidden beneath the Ventnor cliffs, Steephill Cove is a peaceful and secluded beach accessible only by foot. Here you will find a small bay full of character, surrounded by colourful beach huts, fishermen’s cottages, deckchairs and lobster pots. There is also a café and restaurant serving locally caught seafood and Isle of Wight produce – don’t miss the crab on chips at the crab shack café! The Oyster Store Flooded with light and with local chatter, let first-rate seafood do the talking. The team of chefs create dishes focused on fish and seafood from the South Coast with a respectful nod to the seasons. With flagstone flooring, tongue and groove walls and a peaceful terrace, The Oyster Store is the perfect place for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The beautiful terrace is the perfect space to enjoy seafood and wine, bathed in sunshine until late evening, when they like to light their fire pit for guests to enjoy.

The Ventnor Haven Fishery

Situated on the esplanade at Ventnor, the Ventnor Haven Fishery is a fantastic spot to grab a Great British classic: fish and chips. You can choose from a variety of freshly-caught fish, which is lightly battered and served with a generous helping of hand-cut, chunky chips. With a menu that changes according to that day’s catch, it doesn’t get much fresher, and is a sure-fire Island favourite. The Little Gloster Recently awarded ‘Restaurant of the Year’ in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight and featured in the Michelin Guide, The Little Gloster is a family run restaurant offering panoramic sea views of the solent, in Gurnard, just five minutes West of Cowes. Presenting simple seasonal food in relaxed Scandinavian influenced surroundings, they offer high quality service, locally sourced produce, and a passion for great food, wine, music and cocktails. The perfect place for a quiet meal, to celebrate a special occasion or simply unwind with a glass of wine whilst taking in the spectacular sunsets that contribute to making this location so unique. Three Buoys Three Buoys restaurant is a local family run business that overlooks the beautiful bay of Appley. Their aim is to deliver elegant food with big flavours, complimented by their carefully selected wine list. Whether you want to relax on the balcony with a cocktail in hand or have an intimate meal looking over the Solent, Three Buoys is the place for you. We love Moules Frite Friday where you can enjoy a bowl of hot steaming fresh mussels, lemon salted chips, garlic ciabatta and a crisp glass of sauvignon blanc for an amazing £14!
