Bembridge – The Pilot Boat Inn

The Pilot Boat is a fantastic spot for lodging, dining, and drinking. Check out the information from my visit here.

The new Galley Cafe is open every day and serves food made using local ingredients, as well as drinks and scooped ice cream. On-site amenities include a new gift shop and the Wight Knuckle microbrewery. Breakfast is included, and additional meals can be purchased in the Galley Cafe during the day.

It’s the ideal location for a vacation, as it’s close to the beach, the harbour, and the village’s attractions. There is a ground-floor bedroom suite with its own entrance, as well as five en suite bedrooms upstairs. We allow dogs on the premises.



Bembridge encompasses the majority of the Isle of Wight’s eastern edge, including its harbour and three beaches, as well as having its own airport.

With diverse coasts, rock pools, and beautiful panoramic views out to sea, the three beaches of Lane End, the Ledge, and Bembridge Beach are highly popular for exploring. Bembridge is a renowned sailing destination thanks to its large harbour.

The new Bembridge Lifeboat station, which stands offshore to form a spectacular image, can be found on Lane End Beach. Although the natural timber construction was only built in 2010, it has quickly become one of the most recognisable and photographed monuments on the Isle of Wight.

Bembridge Windmill, on the outskirts of the village, is another of the Isle of Wight’s most well-known structures, which is managed by The National Trust.

Culver Down is a short distance from Bembridge, and its white cliffs can be viewed from Sandown Bay all the way to Shanklin. The chalk downs of Culver are home to a remarkable combination of animals and natural elements, as well as a monument with accompanying remains of a previous barracks, a huge fort maintained by The National Trust, and a Second World War anti-aircraft gun at the cliff’s edge. Whitecliff Bay, a secluded cove beneath Culver on the Bembridge side, is definitely worth investigating.
