This beloved and iconic traditional pub at the foot of Ryde Pier is a wonderful choice for a relaxing time, and is something of a social hub for many townsfolk. Dubbing it 'the little pub with a beating heart', the Mackay family have worked hard to establish The Lud as a diverse and consistent venue. All who visit are guaranteed very good, local homemade food and well-kept real ales alongside the best in live, local entertainment.

The King Lud offers an astonishing choice of eight moules frites dishes, including some that are made with Isle of Wight real ale, and the team are also particularly proud of their gourmet Isle of Wight Lud burger, all-day breakfasts, house seafood platter and the scrumdiddlyumptious Sunday roasts with Isle of Wight meats. The pub is also known for its comprehensive vegetarian and 'free from' menus.

With a dartboard, a sharing library and an upright piano, as well as a wooden rocking horse and plenty of board games for the kids, there's never a dull moment. Indeed, The King Lud welcomes a diverse crowd, as it hosts everything from tea dances, Morris dancing and folk nights to deep house DJs and thrash, punk, funk and rock artists. The only question now is, what will you visit for
