The Isle of Wight is famous for good food and in particular the huge variety of Seafood on offer across the Island. One of the main focal areas of the ‘seafood scene’ on the Island is Bembridge Harbour, which is home to a plethora of Fishing vessels in addition to being a popular spot for pleasure craft, kayakers, dog walkers, etc.
Over the weekend of the 23rd & 24th September, the Harbour will be chock full of foodies for the annual Bembridge Harbour Food Festival, which takes place at many locations throughout the villages of Bembridge and St Helens with a central venue 'Hub', marquee etc. on the harbourside at the Bembridge Sailing Club.
Free parking is available on the Point and only a short walk to Bembridge Village or Fishermans Marina and a cycle or short drive or cab to St Helens and further afield Bembridge.
This area is home to nearly 40 different ‘Eateries’ including beachside cafés, pubs, tea rooms and coffee shops to highly acclaimed restaurants and hotels. Bembridge village is home to delis, a renowned butcher, wet fish shop, farm shop, bakery and two well-stocked local supermarkets, there is also a local shop in St Helens selling a variety of Island produce.
