Set in the traditional little town of Yarmouth, the Bugle Coaching Inn is a 16th century pub which has pride of place in the market square. Just a moment’s walk from the harbourside, the inn’s as welcoming to pets as it is to people and it prides itself on its hot food.
Speaking of pets, there’s a flat, scenic walk that connects Freshwater and Yarmouth – so the inn makes a great place to stop off after completing it with your dog. The walk follows the route of a former railway line and it makes for a unique Wight walk to tackle with your four-legged friend.
The inn has a courtyard garden and as it tends to host live bands on weekends it’s one of Yarmouth’s most popular pubs. The bands play outside in the courtyard during the summer, and you can book a table outside in advance to make sure you get to enjoy the pretty spot. The Sunday lunches are well worth completing the walk from Freshwater for, and there’s even a beer festival held every year. The TripAdvisor reviewers seem impressed too, and they often comment on the large portions of food and the menu that’s packed with all the pub classics.
