Brading – The Bugle

We stopped off in Brading for a bite to eat and a few pints on a Friday night to find they are not serving food, bummer! A Guinness (£4.50) as the ales didn’t catch my interest. The inside of the building is quite large and geared up for families with a small indoor play area (currently closed – July 21) and a well sized beer garden with kids play area. They have a large car park. If you visit there website they point you to their Facebook page and they do state they have Sky Sports.


Brading is a charming little hamlet nestled on a slope below Brading Down in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Brading is one of the island’s oldest cities, said to have been created by King Alfred in the 7th century. Its history dates back thousands of years before the Iron Age.

With rolling green hills falling down to the sea, spectacular views from Brading Down, various footpaths and bridleways, and a variety of unusual animals, including the birds at the Brading Marshes RSPB Reserve, the surrounding countryside is as much of a feature.
Brading is one of the Island’s undiscovered gems, thanks to its mix of heritage and environment in a thriving community, as well as some excellent local cuisine.
