The first Isle of Man ‘Guide to Isle of Man Food and Drink’ was published in 2009 with 51 entries. Six years and five editions later and there are over 100 entries in the guide. The continuing demand for a directory and the growth in new businesses clearly highlight the growth of interest in quality local food and drink in the Isle of Man.
This site represents the next stage in the evolution of the ‘Guide’, which operates as an interactive, map-based directory optimised for use on mobile devices.
This website will be of interest to Isle of Man residents who wish to source the best of local produce and also visitors to the island who can get ideas for the best ways to experience the burgeoning food culture that the Isle of Man has to offer.

Is your business eligible for inclusion in the Guide?
The Guide to Isle of Man Food and Drink and the Isle of Man Food & Drink Festival are intended to support the use of local produce and to promote businesses that contribute to the burgeoning food culture in the Isle of Man. We recognise that all businesses cannot source everything they need from Isle of Man produce and that there are some really great food and drink businesses out there that contribute to the food culture, but cannot avail of locally produced products. The flowchart below identifies our inclusion policy.
