Our Inspiration

Goddard’s is the Isle of Wight’s oldest brewery, still family run and located in the beautiful surroundings of Barnsley Farm.

Having been comprehensively ‘stuffed’ by Lloyd’s (the insurance market) Anthony and Alix Goddard had to sell up their home and vineyard business at Barton Manor in Whippingham on the Isle of Wight. In 1991, having picked themselves up and dusted themselves off, they relocated to a caravan at the then derelict Barnsley Farm in Ryde, on the Island, where they began renovations.
