"On the Rocks"
Bridge Road, Yarmouth
Isle of Wight
Prominently positioned by the harbour, this restaurant may once have been a pub (notice the bracket on the second storey façade towards the right, which would have held the pub sign), and so might be seen as "Brewer's Tudor." The Tudor Revival style of the late nineteenth/early twentieth century used timbers for decorative rather than structural purposes, often stained black as here for contrast. The feature oriel and chimney-pots also suggest this period. A plain single-storey extension begins to the far right.
