Isle of Wight Restaurants & Eating Out Guide

Food Lovers Guide to the Isle of Wight

 by Alison Jane Reid

Fresh Food

Gourmet, Michelin-starred, foraged or so local you will probably rub shoulders with the farmer or artisan producer who reared your meal – the food scene on the Isle of Wight is an exciting and constantly changing kaleidoscope of culinary possibilities.

I make no apology for seeking out and focusing on the very best local, seasonal and organic food cooked by an exciting brigade of chefs who are lured to the island by its history, its beauty and the bounty of land and sea. Our small island has so much to offer the cherished, regular visitor or discerning newcomer.

Restaurant reviews by Alison Jane Reid: A feature writer and ethical style guru, Alison interviews icons and writes about inspiring ways to go green for:  The Times, Hello! ES Magazine, Issue One, The Independent and Orient Express Group.
