Winter food at The Needles Old Battery

Enjoy warming food each winter's weekend at the Needles Old Battery tea-room, on the Isle of Wight. It's the perfect place to warn up after a long walk over Tennyson Down on a crisp winters day.

Come into the warm

After a brisk winter walk on a frosty morning come into the cosy surroundings of the Needles Old Battery tea-room. With the inviting aromas of freshly brewed coffee and hot soup, and the sounds of the 1940s, sit and look out over the iconic Needles lighthouse as you enjoy a warming bite.

Something for lunch

Open each weekend from 11am-3pm from 7 January, and for the whole of half-term from 10.30am-5pm, come for lunch and try a warming one pot, a baked potato, or one of our tasty sandwiches.

If you're feeling thirsty, we provide teas, including herbal, fairtrade coffee and hot chocolate, alongside cold drinks.

Afternoon Tea

As part of the new cook book scheme we change our menu seasonally. We always have a selection of cakes, flapjack, bread pudding, cheese scones and fruit scones, and during the winter months our chef introduces different recipes ready for the new season.

Cream teas are a favourite with our delicious fruit scones, jam and clotted cream. Why not 
also try our savoury tea with a cheese scone, cheese and pickle - ask for the cheese scone 
warm, it's delicious.
