Taste of the Wight

We launched Taste of the Wight back in 2013 after spotting a gap in the market and we wanted to share with the world what we already knew – that the Isle of Wight is one of the top destinations for foodies.

We are lucky to be filled with creative and passionate producers; beautiful and welcoming pubs; restaurants serving top-notch food and, the icing on the cake, our stunning location.

The perfect companion for visitors and locals alike, Taste of the Wight has cemented its position as the leading guide to food and drink on the Isle of Wight. Evolving over its five years, the printed guide is design-led and features our own unique and original illustrations, as well as authoritative and engaging copy.

We have worked to grow Taste from a 55 page pocket guide to a 130 page A5 guide that it is today.

Our popular website is designed to complement and go hand-in-hand with our printed guide. Promoting the Islands food and drink to a wide audience, this is the go-to site for where to get the best slice of cake, top places for your brekkie and everything in between. Our website is backed up by vibrant social media with a loyal following.

Social & PR

Having built up a reputation for knowing a fair bit about the Island’s food and drink scene, we were commissioned to write content for our tourist board, Visit Isle of Wight. As well as informative and interesting copy, we also produced a series of blog posts, detailing the latest news and events across the Island, all with our unique foodie twist.


Taste of the Wight has been a regular feature on the local event scene. We have worked closely with clients such as the RIWAS County Show and were instrumental in creating the food and drink offering and popular theatre kitchen at this annual show.

We were delighted to have been asked to work to create a local offering at the Island’s last ever Bestival, before it moved to Dorset. The team created a bespoke dish which firmly focused on local ingredients, as well as being easy to eat at a festival, and proper tasty too!

On our travels we have been lucky enough to visit the Houses of Parliament where we set up a pop-up bar to showcase speciality cocktails made from Island ingredients and have also been involved in the Chale Show, The Sweetcorn Fayre, Wolverton Folk & Blues and many more.
