Visitors to the Isle of Wight Classic Buses, Beer and Walks Weekend in October have voted The Castle in Sandown as their top pub for 2019.

Participants in the event are given the opportunity to vote for their favourite pub over the 2 days, based on their overall experience at each venue. This is the second year that the venue has topped the poll.

Runners-up this year were The Buddle Inn at Niton and The Old Village Inn, Bembridge.
