Famed for our breakfasts, we offer wholesome dishes freshly prepared alongside sandwiches and tasty pasties. Enjoy baked muffins and pastries straight from the oven, paired with a piping-hot Isle of Wight tea, coffee or indulgent hot chocolate – or simply relax with a glass of wine or beer. On sunny days, treat yourself to an Island-made ice cream on the outside deck.

You can even keep a look out for our mascot, Captain Ted Funnel when he comes to visit our passengers. For teens, free WiFi and plug sockets means they won’t miss a thing from their social circles!
