Matt and Cat say...
"In the old Yarmouth railway station, Off The Rails is the perfect terminus for walkers and their dogs.
After enjoying Mill Copse carry on walking along the old railway line going north - you're just a few steps from Off The Rails, a hugely popular venue that is the perfect place for walkers, cyclists and especially dogs - it even has a doggy menu! Further on in the town is the impressive George Hotel - a classy place for a posh dinner outside on the terrace. Or enjoy pub grub from the Wheatsheaf or King's Head - both decent places for family food. Coffee house PO41 also features some great cakes, and for a quick bite with an epic sea view try to get a window seat at Gossip's Cafe. Going south, the old railway track takes you almost to Freshwater Bay, where nearby the Piano Cafe, Dimbola and Dandelion Cafe are all worth a visit on your meanderings."
