dog friendly advice please

We plan to visit IOW but do not want to make the same mistake as our recent visit to wales.Though we stayed in a lovely dog friendly cottage, there was only one pub, which didn't allow dogs, and as the weather was not its best, drinking outside was not favourable. Can anyone advise the best area/place to stay, not over-run with children, but not so remote that you have to drive everywhere. Will probably be out of season, 3-4 nights, maybe even risk December. A pub/eaterie in walking distance from accommodation essential. Please help.

I always find the right pub, THEN find the cottage. Never fails.

The Wight Mouse is a pub with restaurant with a hotel attached all of which take dogs, though is a short drive away from most other places, though it is right near the coastal path and some stunning walks. Coming off season many beaches allow dogs whereas they are barred from most beaches during the season (pooper scooping still required of course!)

White Mouse Inn is at Chale West of Niton and Ventnor but you would have to drive to places beyond the walks

not many lively places on the IOW out of season, IMO Ryde or Shanklin would be the best bet but very quiet out of season

The Wight Mouse is specifically set up for families, so might not suit.

Many years ago we stayed in Newchurch. Nice village and not touristy - or indeed lively. But as said already, this is the IOW, not Copacabana ! The pub was good : tripadvisor.co.uk/Restaurant_Review-g1549098…

Hi.

St. Helens near Bembridge is excellent and dogs are allowed on the beach. Ryde is only a 10 minute drive. There are lots of walks nearby with a lovely village green, which also has a couple of village shops for your essentials.

We have stayed in a great dog friendly cottage on the village green.

Hope this helps:-)
