The Pilot Boat in Bembridge on the Isle of Wight is owned by the Bristow family, It is a great place to stay or to meet family and friends for a drink or to eat.

During the last year we have completely refurbished the Pilot Boat and our sons, Edward and Fergus, have also set up the only microbrewery on the Isle of Wight called the Wight Knuckle Brewery.  Downstairs is now the Wight Knuckle Tap Room serving great beers and fantastic stonebaked pizzas from hotbox pizzas.


We also have five bed and breakfast en suite rooms on the first floor and a new ground floor bedroom suite with it's own entrance.  The rooms are open all year.  We also look after a number of self catering cottages.

Please do come and visit us.  We look forward to seeing you.

George and Juliet
