Seaview Bistro, Wight Locations

Regular visitors to Seaview will have no doubt have already noticed that the new / old restaurant next to our office, formally known as Ruby’s has now become the Seaview Bistro & Bar and is under new management

The Bistro and Bar will continue to offer a range of live music with an atmospheric dining experience.

The new menu consists of a mixture of French and English cuisine mixed with some innovative dishes from around the world.

Recognised as one of powerboating's toughest challenges around 20 boats are expected to be in the line-up for this 200-mile classic. The participants will be looking for calm conditions like last year, allowing them to race for the finish in just under three hours.

The powerboat race sails between Cowes and Torbay, and this year marks it's 56th year. The 2015 winner Vector Martini Rosso driven by Peter Dredge, Simon Powell, Mal Crease and David Gandy averaged the fastest course speed ever at 94.55 mph!

Billed as the largest garden fair on the Island, the Wolverton Manor in Shorwell opens its gates on 3rd & 4th September. Featuring over 120 island and mainland exhibitors representing a wide range of gardening and country arts and crafts. There'll be marquees with stalls displaying handicrafts and local art exhibitions as well as eateries and entertainments. Wight Falconry will be on hand with their birds of prey and you can also grab a canoe and paddle right around the moat!

With something for everyone look out for:

Man About A Dog at the Dell Cafe

The Top 6 Dog Friendly cafes on the Isle of Wight according to manaboutadogblog

Cafe culture. It has to be one of the best things that France has given to the world, other than champagne, stinky cheese and Marion Cotillard. There is nothing that Grenson and I enjoy more than whiling away the hours in a busy little cafe watching the world go by. So it’s lucky for us that Wight Locations have asked us to compile our 6 top pet friendly cafes on the Isle of Wight. Again, it’s a hard job but some man and dog has to do it!

The ultimate day out for petrol heads! Your chance to see examples of this British motoring marque from the past 40 years all on display in one place.

This day out strives to keep everyone happy with music from Joey Scott and the Medina Marching Band, stalls and trade stands for those that like to shop, plus a dog agility show, bouncy castle and a giant slide for the kids.

There will be a modest charge by the Jaguar Car Club for entry to the Showfield and tickets include free entry to the Train Story visitor centre.
