Fantastic Meal

Stopped for lunch while driving round the island and had a fantastic meal. I had the steak and ale pie off the specials board and my girlfriend had the burger. Wonderful staff and great food.

We only visited this pub for a drink after going to the Chine (recommended) - the atmosphere was nice despite it being empty, and the lady at the bar was very friendly and welcoming! They had a good range of beers and ciders and we would have definitely gone back for food if we'd had time. I'd definitely recommend ringing... More

On a lovely sunny day we were treated to a truly delicious sunday roast at this pub on the seafront. We sat outside due to the sunshine and because we had our dog with us. I had roast pork, as did my boyfriend. There was plenty of meat, roast potatoes, a large yorkshire pudding and a huge bowl of vegetables... More

If you have room for lunch after visiting Shanklin Chine and its pleasant tea room, then this pub, at the beach end of the Chine, is the place to make for. It is charming and atmospheric and the food is good and good value. Even better, you can choose to have a half-portion which in itself is more than generous.... More

We have been living here in Shanklin only three months now but couldn't wait to eat and drink here so on a perfect weather day came and ate fish and chips and had some good wine and had a few nice pints of Good IOW local brew. The fish was Haddock and very well cooked and chunky chips with the... More

It's a bit further along Shanklin beach but the service is excellent, the food is fresh and delicious and the beer is the best in Shanklin. A great experience that's well worth seeking out.

What a great find! Situated right down on the shore at the far end of the Prom by the Chine. A lovely character pub that not only looks old from the outside but also has not been spoiled on the inside. It has an outside seating area where you can sit and take in the great views. Although we did... More

After being recommended by a number of people we took a chance and turned up without a reservation. Luckily it was a quiet evening so we had no problem getting a table. Service was quick and friendly. Portions were very generous and tasty. We would definably visit again.

Found this lovely restaurant out of coincidence when walking past.. So glad we did. The food was delicious and such big portions so reasonably priced.
