Food and Drink


Whether you’re looking for a quick snack on the go, an afternoon coffee and cake or lunch for the whole family, we understand that eating out is one of the best things about being on holiday. From the locally sourced produce to the fresh island ingredients and the hearty customer care, you can be sure the Isle of Wight will serve up something special during your trip.

We are big believers that tasty dishes first start with super-quality ingredients.
Dishing up good, honest food that won’t break the bank.

We also have several food and drink kiosks located around The Needles, with a wide range of snacks, ice creams and refreshments available. During winter months our outside kiosks remain closed, but you can still grab a bite to eat in our onsite restaurant and tea rooms.
