Food fresh from the sea

Simply a question of taste...

With 67 miles of coastline, it's no wonder the Isle of Wight offers some of the finest and freshest seafood in the south. Wild bass, Dover sole, crab, lobster and prawns are just some of the varieties that can be purchased and cooked just a few hours after being landed by the local fishermen - you really can taste the difference!
