‘The Hut’ Restaurant – Isle of Wight

Located right on the beach at Colwell Bay on the Isle of Wight, this stunning restaurant is well worth a visit. With seasonal and fresh produce being their passion, ‘The Hut’ is only open between April and October and with a reputation that precedes it, you can expect every weekend to be fully booked months in advance. But don’t let how busy it is put you off, as this restaurant oozes with an easy-going alfresco atmosphere.

Being a seafront restaurant, you can expect there to be some wonderful fresh fish on the menu, including Thai Porthilly Mussels, Grilled Octopus, and even a Sashimi Plate. But even if a fish dish does not ‘float your boat’ there are plenty of alternatives including a Fillet Steak or even a Sugar Pit bacon chop.

So, with a Mai Tai or large glass of Shiraz in hand, a stunning view across the Solent and superbly prepared and presented food, what more could you ask for?

Just a helicopter to take you there of course!…..
