The chances are that you’ll visit The Old Fort at least once during a stay in Seaview (or even neighbouring Ryde since it’s within walking distance), as it’s one of the village’s most popular places for a bite.
With views across the Solent and a friendly atmosphere, The Old Fort has tables within just a few feet of the water when the tide’s in so if you like to dine al fresco it’s perfect. We’d suggest booking a table in advance if you’re going to be visiting during the summer as it’s often busy, and check the opening hours during winter to avoid disappointment if you’re after hot food.
Children are welcome, and the pub has an island-wide reputation for its Sunday roasts which is always a good sign. The service may be fast but the food’s made using quality ingredients that reflect the area, so if you need to stop off for something filling after a busy day walking or enjoying the nearby beaches you can expect good food to leave you feeling ready to discover more. The menu includes fresh, seasonal produce from around the island to give visitors a taste of local produce, and the selection includes traditional classics with something for every age group.
