The Taverners, Godshill

Dishing up pub classics and plenty of local fare, this cosy inn in pretty Godshill is the perfect place to refuel after a long walk or a visit to some of the Island’s quaintest attractions. See you at the bar!

Weekend Escapes

Inland from the gorgeous sandy beaches of Ventnor, the sleepy village of Godshill is home to one of the Isle of Wight’s two cute model villages, a Lilliputian utopia based on the chocolate-box village itself. Also in the neighborhood, the Isle of Wight donkey sanctuary with its super-cute friendly residents is a sure-fire hit with kids and animal lovers alike.

When you’ve finished checking out the local attractions, The Taverners makes an ideal place to try out some of the Island’s renowned local produce, cooked up into some top-class pub fare by owners Emma and Tim Foster and their team. Look out for mains such as St Austell Bay mussels, chorizo, shallot, Doom Bar amber ale and cream sauce served up with homemade focaccia and Isle of Wight butchers sausages, mustard potato mash, baked onion, gravy and a cheeseboard boasting a strong line-up of Island cheeses like Isle of Wight Blue and Black Bomber.

A popular stop for visitors to the Island, it’s easy to see why The Taverners has earned a strong reputation for good, contemporary pub classics, making it a year-round draw for tourists as well as a committed local following. Last one there’s a donkey…
