the Highdown Inn

The Highdown Inn and B & B is a beautiful example of a traditional country pub.

The Highdown Inn is set in outstanding natural Isle of Wight surroundings complimented by a rich history across the West of the Isle of Wight.

Mingle with the locals in our friendly bar whilst selecting your meal from the daily blackboard specials, and enjoy an excellent meal either at a table in the bar or in our sumptuous restaurant. We are noted for our seafood and shellfish and you can compliment your meal with a wine from our extensive stocks or a cold beer or real ale..

Treat yourself to a seasonal break and enjoy evenings in front of our roaring log fire sampling the delights of our seasonal menu. This includes various ‘game’ specialities.

We welcome walkers, dogs, muddy boots and cyclists so feel free to come in and soak up the atmosphere or you may prefer to relax in our garden or patio area whilst enjoying a drink or a meal... the choice is yours.
