Food & Drink

Enjoy delicious, locally sourced food daily…

We source much of our produce from local fisherman, farmers and other suppliers. To be able to sit outside the Spyglass overlooking the sea eating a fresh lobster salad is one of the Island’s greatest pleasures! We are particularly proud of our homemade specials board which regularly feature local fish, shellfish and many meat dishes.

There’s good news on the horizon. The Spyglass Inn is opening fully from Monday 17th May!

We will be open everyday from 12noon serving tasty home-cooked food and of course a pint or two. Also, from Friday 21st May we will have live music every Friday, Saturday and Sunday… more details to follow but expect some old favourites!

Please remember that face coverings are to be worn at all times on the premises (except when sat at your table), tables will be limited to 6 people only (this is to avoid any confusion), every person entering must sign in or use the Track and Trace app (under 16s except). Thanks in advance for your cooperation.

We look forward to seeing you soon
Neil, Steph, Rosie & Henry Gibbs and The Spyglass Crew

(Please note that we do not take table bookings, but space is rarely a problem)

Try our wine…

We have one of the Island’s most extensive and best value for money wine lists. Why not push the boat out a little?


Main menu…

We pride ourselves on serving great pub grub, which uses many local ingredients including an excellent selection of seasonal  seafood provided by local fishermen here at Ventnor Haven. What they catch in the morning is often on our specials board by the afternoon.

Desert menu…

Go on and spoil yourself. Our selection of desserts includes all your favourites and there’s always something to tempt you on our specials board as well.
