Food and drink

Eat and drink at Wightlink

Whether you’re on board a ferry or waiting for the next one, you can pick up delicious, locally-sourced food and drink at most of our ports and on board all our vehicle ferries, which serve the Portsmouth – Fishbourne and Lymington – Yarmouth routes.

For those who want to sample some authentic Isle of Wight flavours, we have Wight Taste cafés stocked with Island-sourced sandwiches, freshly-made pasties, locally-brewed ales and much more.

Just after a coffee and a quick snack? You’ll find We’re Serving Costa Coffee outlets on board our St Clare and Victoria of Wight ferries.

Wight Taste

With our Wight Taste cafés, you can sample a taste of the Isle of Wight before you’ve even hit the shore. We stock some of the Island’s finest food and drink products, from freshly-baked pasties to locally-brewed, award-winning ales.

  • After a cup of tea or coffee? You’ll get delicious milk from Isle of Wight cows

  • Just want a sandwich? You’ll enjoy the softest, locally-baked bread

  • Looking for a gift, or something to take home with you? Pick up a bottle of refreshing Island-distilled gin or locally-brewed beer

Vegetarian, vegan and other dietary requirements

On board and at our ports, you’ll find vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free food and drink options, subject to availability.

Vegan sandwiches from Isle of Wight-based bakery, Graces, are particularly popular along with vegan sausage baps and vegan cheese and caramelised onion toasties.
