In the harbour’s heart, landlord George runs a friendly ship with local crab specialities and good booze - for families, dogs, beachcombers

This amphibious-looking Bembridge Harbour landmark is ship-shape in more ways than one. Behind the nautical portholes and narrow Mackintosh windows of its Art Deco ship, award-winning landlord George has assembled friendly staff, good booze and generous plates of simple, fresh and often fishy pub cuisine. Snatch sea views from the side garden, savouring a speciality crab sandwich. Whether a dog walker, child-festooned parent or beachcomber with sand-tingled toes, warm welcomes await. Bar décor is eclectic, occasionally opulent. Floors and furnishings are dark wood, red walls frame vintage prints. Sofa seating is kitsch and comfy, board games beckon, bright fish somersault in tanks. Try an Island Brewery Yachtsman Ale, something from the wine list (decent mid-range options) or a draft Stowford Press, Grolsch or Guinness.
