If you're not from around these parts, allow me to explain that here on the Isle of Wight we have loads of great pubs and some splendid local beers to seek out.
Click on "find-a-pub" for more details on Island pubs; and click on "local breweries" to find out about the beers and breweries.

If you are from round here, please let me know of any up & coming events and snippets of news & gossip.

The find-a-pub page has recently been changed with links to CAMRA What Pub information and I am particularly keen to make sure the page is up to date. If you've got the time, please have a look, and if you spot any discrepancies, please let me know.

And finally...
If you value good beer in good pubs, and if you are not already a CAMRA member, please consider joining us.

"We're the people who try to make sure you've nice beer to drink in your pubs and try to stop blokes in suits buying your local and turning it in to a shop"
