Pleasant 17th century coaching inn, originally known as the “Halfway Inn” until the adjacent Blacksmiths forge gained precedence with a name change. This pub is hard to miss when approaching Cowes, as it stands on the junction at Northwood with traffic lights and a large garage ahead. There is a large car park, a proper public bar with pool and darts, and a saloon bar that boasts a glass-covered well with fish. The lounge bar has sports TV, but the public bar is quiet, armed only with a pool table. Doggy bar snacks are offered.
