Totand – The Highdown Inn

The Highdown Inn and B&B is a lovely example of a typical country tavern, nestled in gorgeous natural Isle of Wight settings and complemented by a long history that stretches over the island’s west coast. We are well regarded as one of the finest rated pubs on the Isle of Wight for our charm, charisma, and picturesque location, which will ensure that your stay is one to remember.

On the junction of Moons Hill, Alum Bay Old Road, and Weston Lane, we are located at Highdown Lane, Totland, Isle Of Wight.

Two double rooms have ensuite bathrooms, while one twin room has a separate bathroom. Tea and coffee making facilities, fresh towels and dressing gowns, a hairdryer, a television, and WiFi are all accessible in each room.


In our pleasant bar, mingle with the locals while choosing a meal from our daily blackboard specials, or take a seat in our freshly refurbished restaurant. We’re known for our wonderful, locally sourced seafood and shellfish, so pair it with a wine from our large wine list or a cold beer or real ale from our award-winning variety.

Enjoy your nights in front of our blazing log fire beside the bar, or in our luxurious newly rebuilt restaurant while savouring the delicacies of our seasonal menu. This contains a variety of ‘game’ specialties that change with the seasons.

We welcome walkers, dogs, muddy boots, and bicycles, so please feel free to come inside or relax in our lovely garden area, which now includes a wonderful gazebo!

The Highdown Inn is a short drive from Alum Bay and the famed Needles to the west, Freshwater Bay and the historic town of Freshwater to the east, and Colwell Bay and the spectacular views of Freshwater Bay to the north.

We are conveniently located on the coastal pathways and public footpaths from Freshwater Bay, Headon Warren, and Alum Bay, making us an ideal stop for walkers, ramblers, cyclists, and campers.
