THE HOME OF GOOD TASTE There is something extra special about the Isle of Wight which entices visitors and delights residents year after year, and eating out is an increasingly important part of the pleasure. Just as the Island’s scenery offers something new at every bend in the road, so the Island’s multitude of pubs, cafes, restaurants, tapas bars, snack bars, wine bars and farm shop cafes provide an amazing variety of choice. Perhaps it is just as well, because, as everyone will tell you, a couple of hours in the Island’s fresh clean air will definitely give you an appetite! But eating out isn’t just about the food - it’s about the total experience. We’re pleased to say that the Island continues to attract people who love good food. Even more specialist cafes and restaurants have been opened, widening the choice, and also maintaining the high standards you have a right to expect. And as you’ll see when you browse through this guide, you’re never far away from a table with a sea view. It really doesn’t matter where you are on the Island, either - you’ll find a good place to eat in the main towns and resorts, and in tucked away villages, too. It could be an intimate dining experience with fine food and wine, or traditional home cooking in a warm and welcoming pub, or even a superb farmhouse cream tea - you’ll be bowled over by the quality of the food, and the welcome.

FOOD HYGIENE RATING SCHEME In Spring 2011 the Isle of Wight Council’s Environmental Health team switched to a new way of publishing the hygiene standards of food businesses. Building on the success of the Council’s own 0-5 star scheme which has operated successfully since 2007, The Food Hygiene Rating Scheme (FHRS) is the national scheme. The scheme is run by local authorities in England, Wales and Northern Ireland in partnership with the Food Standards Agency and it provides at-a-glance information to consumers on the food hygiene standards found by environmental health officers at planned inspections in the Island’s 2000 food businesses. Food businesses are rated on a scale from 0 at the bottom (meaning ‘urgent improvement necessary‘) to 5 at the top (meaning ‘very good’). The rating reflects hygiene practices, management controls and cleanliness/structural conditions. The scheme recognises food businesses with high standards of food hygiene, whilst providing an incentive for others to improve by allowing consumers to make informed choices about where they eat or buy food from.

Look out for the certificates on the doors & windows of premises

Look out for the A5 sized black and green stickers displayed at the entrance to food businesses. You can also find the ratings on the FSA’s website: www.food.gov.uk/ratings
