Welcome to Perks of Ventnor (Est. 1986)


Situated in the picturesque town of Ventnor on the Isle of Wight. We are in the high street opposite the main car park and only a few minutes walk from the seafront cliff tops with views over the English Channel. Only a few minutes drive in the opposite direction is the highest point on St Boniface Downs, where on a clear day you can see across to Southampton and Portsmouth.

"Perksies" little freehouse offers a good friendly service at sensible prices, a full bar and a good selection of house and premium wines as well as non-alcoholic beverages. Our menus range from sandwiches to full home cooked lunches and dinners, using as much local produce as we can.We offer lunchtime specials and a senior citizens lunch. Evening meals are served on Friday and Saturday nights with a completely different menu and a Specials blackboard selection, including steaks, lamb shanks and crab when in season.

We also cater for parties of up to 20 with a choice of menu to suit the occasion and your budget

"Perksies" is decorated within on a "Best of British" theme with many old photographs of stage, screen and sports personalities and of the Royal family. Of particular interest are two portraits, one of H.M. the Queen and one of H.M. Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother, painted by local artist James F. Leach. There are also some wonderful photographs courtesy of Peter Skingley, including one of Lady Margaret Thatcher descending on a bosuns chair showing off her underwear! Alongside is Churchill, Monty and Eisenhower after "a boys night out"

Very definitely a traditional British Lounge and Wine Bar
