In the shadow of the Yarborough monument (the tallest on the Island) lies the Culver Haven Inn.

With cattle grazing over the fence and wild sheep trotting down the lane this is a rural pub with some of the best coastal views on the Island. It boasts a simple, tasty menu using fresh local food. A good selection of beers including local ales await those who like a pint as well as wines, spirits and soft drinks. In between lunch and evening food service you can enjoy the selection of teas or freshly ground coffee to accompany home-baked cake.  

07 The Menu Venue Culver Haven-horz

This all ensures a relaxing and warm welcome year round – one that can additionally offer splendid 360 degree views from one of the highest points of the Isle of Wight.

Culver Haven is a family run pub developing a loyal local following, but also welcoming visitors to a historic site complete with battlement ruins and plenty of wildlife, all of which you can study further over a pint at the pub itself!


The Culver Haven is an ideal spot to start and finish a bracing country walk. Mike Marchant of IoW Ramblers has put together a series of 4 walks depending on your fitness. All the routes are hilly as they all are around the Culver Downs although you do go down as much as you go up!
