Fine Food

Wine & Beers


The Fishbourne is located in a picturesque and wooded enclave between the main towns of Ryde and Newport on the Isle of Wight. Situated close to the Wightlink Fishbourne to Portsmouth ferry terminal this makes us the ideal entry point to the Island to experience our quality dining and five beautifully appointed en-suite rooms.

A fantastic trip to the Isle of Wight

We had a fantastic trip to the Isle of Wight thanks to the Inns of Distinction; with a brilliant tribute event night at The Boathouse with a truly delicious meal, friendly and efficient staff and very enjoyable entertainment with their solo vocalist/guitarist Ben, followed by a superb overnight stay at The Fishbourne’s lovely accommodation and breakfast. We cannot praise Inns of Distinction enough – their pubs, dining & accommodation rooms, beautiful décor, delicious food, service and staff are faultless. Highly recommended; we will certainly be back for more of their Event nights!

“Wonderful weekend at The Fishbourne”

Just spent three days at The Fishbourne celebrating 80th birthday. Really suberb accomodation and very friendly staff nothing being too much trouble. Excellent food at breakfast and dinner. Great location for anyone using the car ferry. Literally just round the corner. Will certainly be returning in the future when visiting family on the Isle.

“Enjoyed my stay”

I stayed at the Fishbourne Inn for one night when I was away on the Isle of Wight on business. I ate in the restaurant, the food was excellent as was the wine selection. The room was very clean, comfortable. Free wifi was very useful and newspapers available in the evening and at breakfast. Good porridge for breakfast. Really enjoyed my stay and would return, recommended!

“The highlight of Christmas & New Year.”

Booked in for New Years Eve with friends and family – freebie “Bloody Mary” at the door, excellent live entertainment – singer Aleishia would knock all the X-Factor contestants off the stage. Three course menu was very competitively priced and worth a lot more than the £24.95 paid – great atmosphere. Staff were very professional and a credit to the owners – looking forward to the next visit. Well done – The Fishbourne.

This is a great pub that stumbled across while waiting for the ferry, so much so we ended up staying on the island. They have an extensive list of great wines and specials.
They also have rooms that you can rent, we sadly could t get in here however went to a sister hotel which was also great. Great staff that were helpful and friendly.

Great decor – great food – great atmosphere !! nearly gave up that anything like this existed in the Isle of Wight !! Popping back for lunch in the lovely garden :))!
