I visited with my parents and husband and all the meals were of very poor quality. My father ordered local faggots served with mash, my mother had the local butchers sausages with mash, my husband the smoked fish platter and I had a simple local butchers pasty and chips. The food came very quickly and we soon realised why. The... More

Stuck for something to eat on Sunday evening, I decided to try the Highdown with my husband and his parents. The pub was busy and full of local chatter. Staff are efficient and clearly accustomed to bring run off their feet. We ordered lots of seafood dishes, plus rump steak, meat platters and soup. Everything was plainly cooked and without... More

Very accommodating as allowed my husband and I to have an early check in. Had a lovely lunch in the bar where there was a great choice of dishes and the ingredients were sourced locally. On the morning we were leaving we were late for breakfast but this wasn't an issue for the Highdown and they made us breakfast anyway.... More

I stayed at the Highdown Inn for 7 nights, and I'm so happy that I did. It's a lovely little pub out in the sticks of beautiful West Wight. I stayed in the twin which was kept incredibly clean and well stocked with fresh towels and basic refreshments, such as biscuits and bottled water. Each morning I was served a... More

Went to the Highdown Inn twice this half term while staying on the Island. Lovely beer, lovely food, even lovely walks close by to build an appetite for the previous. A great place to sit and waste an afternoon eating and drinking. Nice garden too with facilities to entertain nippers. Lovely

Excellent stay, lovely front room with bright light coming through the two windows. Food is incredible - especially the fish - and lovely warm fire in the pub. Very friendly owner who is happy to help with everything.

The Highdown Inn well...... Our stay was a nightmare this was supposed to be a hotel or B&B I would not call it either. It was as if we were an inconvenience rather than welcomed paying guests. The owner was abrupt and unfriendly. She left the keys to all our rooms in the lock on the outside of our room,... More

Having said that the food in the pub was great served and presented well, although a mix up with the table bookings so I would always ring and check that they... More

We stopped off here for lunch whilst on an all day walk on sunday. Initially just for a drink in the garden but when we saw the Sunday roast decided to order food. Delicious home cooked food. Well presented. Friendly service and very reasonable at 9.50 each for a roast.

Stayed one night on a hiking weekend. Was concerned when arrived as carpet and decor in urgent need of refreshing/replacement. However it is actually delightful! Menu is extensive - something for everyone (vegetarian, fresh fish, rich beef pie,) dog friendly and very friendly staff. Saturday evening the rest of our hiking group from the nearby campsite joined us for supper,... More
