The world-famous, award-winning Spyglass Inn sits at the western end of Ventnor Esplanade on the Isle of Wight, in a most enviable position overlooking the English Channel. The inn is steeped in history, being perhaps the oldest building on the Esplanade, dating back to around 1830.

The pub is one of the iconic buildings of Ventnor and has a reputation that is founded on good grub, great beer and a fantastic atmosphere, muddy boots and dogs are more than welcome. This is enhanced by the live music which is presented free of charge most evenings as well as lunchtime on Sundays and features many of the Isle of Wight’s top local musicians.

Newport was once a busy trading port with numerous warehouses, loading cranes, ships and barges. One of the last remaining warehouses has been extensively renovated and sits alongside the Bargeman’s Rest and is home to the Quay Arts Centre.

Newport is the Isle of Wight’s county town and is truly at the heart of the Island. The Bargeman’s Rest is just a short walk down Quay Street or Holyrood Street from Newport High Street, so is perfectly placed for a hearty meal or a drink on the water’s edge.

Situated right on Shanklin Esplanade, it’s a lovely spot to enjoy some of the Isle of Wight’s best fresh seafood from our specials board or perhaps while away a relaxing afternoon. Enjoy an extensive wine list and fine selection of real ales and beers.

Our Ventnor Seafront accommodation consists of three new luxury beach houses; Crab Cottage, Herring House and Lobster Lodge, each sleeping up to ten across four bedrooms. All enjoy stunning panoramic views across the English Channel and are perfectly situated just yards from Ventnor seafront and the beach itself!

Ventnor is one of England’s most famous seaside resorts, known for its unique microclimate. Set on the south side of the Isle of Wight, Ventnor has a decidedly Mediterranean feel with its cafes and restaurants spilling out onto the pavements of the Esplanade. The town of Ventnor lies beneath the Island’s highest point on St Boniface Down, and is mainly built onto the side of a steep hill that leads down to the seafront and beach.
