Fantastic!

Enjoyed a really excellent meal. Subtle flavours and excellent service. The lamb was tender and the blackberry and port sauce matched it well. Thank you.

Have just returned from a fabulous evening of laughter and amazing food at this small restaurant here in Shanklin. We were a party of 6, not all easy to please but the food was far better than most of the restaurants we have closer to home. Service was prompt but relaxed, surprisingly the owners came from the same town as... More

Pendleton's ticks all the boxes. Good fresh locally sourced food, no long waits for service and presented with care and love. The family ownership is apparent and makes all the difference. We felt welcome, cared for and were not disappointed. This restaurant is outstanding in Shanklin and to be highly commended on any "high street", thank you!

We booked a table on the Thursday before Good Friday. Whilst there is not a huge choice the food is cooked for you while you wait so it is all nice and fresh. It was not overly busy on the evening we went but I am sure they would be busy over the other bank holiday days. The service and... More

Definitely the best meal I had in Shanklin. Wonderfully attentive staff. Well organised service and beautiful simple, clean and modern decor which had a very warm feel to it. We went for the antipasti sharing platter. Perfect in every way. Fresh salads, tasty cold cuts and delicious sundried tomato bread. I then opted for the seafood linguine which came with... More

We were very pleased to get a table here on Easter Sunday as we booked quite late. However, they managed to fit us in and we had an excellent table for two by the window. The young man who greeted us was very friendly and very knowledgeable about all the dishes and drinks. They have a draft German beer which... More

We'd booked another restaurant but had a problem so turned up at Pendletons. We were lucky enough to get a table and really pleased we did. The anti pasti, cod fillet, chicken in prosciutto were superb, the balance of flavours were excellent and the quality of the ingredients perfect. Service was exemplary, Stevie should be very proud!

A short stay in Shanklin had us looking for 3 restaurants and having read Trip Advisor reviews we decided Pendletons was the one for our Saturday night and it was excellent ... so much so that we returned again on Sunday!! The menu is not extensive but I don't mind that because it normally means that what is offered is... More

We have eaten here on a few occasions. The menu is not vast, but well thought out with something for everyone. The restaurant has a nice feel to it, so a nice ambience. The relaxed style and personality of the waiting staff is welcoming and very comforting. A nothing is too much attitude is very evident. Food was tasty, varied,... More
