Spyglass Inn

Pub Food in Ventnor & Southern Isle of Wight

When a beachfront pub is this bedecked with pirate paraphernalia, ships' lanterns and lifebelts, you tend to be wary of the meals. No need. The seafood platters and salads here are renowned, especially the grilled, garlic-butter-laced lobster – book these, they tend to sell out.

There are plenty of wave-side tables at which to down a pint too.
