Godshill is a lovely, small village towards the south of the island. It has some quaint cottages, a number of pubs and a few touristy shops. There is also a model village. The Taverners appears to be the best pub in the village. It has a small car park, which is full with just 4 cars. But there is a public car park further down the road. The pub has a traditional seating area at the front, with the bar, more modern seating areas and a shop at the rear. We were hoping to eat and soon realised how popular this place can get. Nearly every table had a reserved notice on it, despite the pub being fairly quiet. Maybe not so much of a drinkers' pub, as the only space for them was at the bar. We were offered a small table in the shop, which we gratefully accepted. The food was decent and some of the products in the shop were interesting too, with plenty of locally-made produce available. Ales were Sharps Doom Bar, Goddard's Ale Of Wight & Yates' Taverner's Ale. They also stocked the only real cider I found on this visit - Rumpy Pumpy Scrumpy from the local Godshill producer, who also have a shop in the village. Food-oriented. But a decent pub.

Pleasant pub but as a previous writer commented it was a bit odd to find closed signs at the front bar and all the activity at the back. Food and beer very nice and the staff were pleasant. In nice weather there are plenty of outside eating areas.

Don't buy the platters unless you want to be embarassed by the miserly portions. Unbelievable cheek! The meal was obviously designed by a four man committee, three accountants and a chef with a lack of self confidence.
I felt like I'd been mugged. They won't catch me again, that's for sure. It was 3.50's worth charged at approx 7.99.

Good pub in the middle of the village, has about four real ales on (one brewed for the pub) and good range of lager and cider.

Food is excellent and locally sourced (they get the herbs from the pub garden while they are cooking) but is a bit pricey.

Think booking ahead at weekends is advisable as most of tables inside were reserved at 1730 on a Saturday.

Large beer garden at the rear and side of the pub.

Very prompt and friendly service.

We called in for lunch one weekday lunchtime after a holiday walk to Godshill and found the welcome, service and food brilliant. Drinks wise we enjoyed a rather strong Old Rosie cider, so it was just as well we were on foot! Many of the staff seem to be hospitality and catering students but it's none the worse for that as they're keen to impress and please, as they did excellently.
