Lovely, tasty crab pasties to eat with a gorgeous sea view. Steep walk to get to it , but well worth it!
One of our highlights of our visit to the Isle of Wight

Recommended to visit this place in the beautiful Steephill Cove. Had a job to find it but were so glad we did. We had nothing out of the ordinary - a crab sandwich each with salad and mayo but it was excellent. All served in a friendly manner in a beautiful location. Don't miss this place if you visit IoW

Loved loved love this little place. We sat right on the water (though we saw people have their food delivered to the beach!) - the food was excellent (we had both the crab pasties + the crab sandwiches, both very good) and the service was lovely. Clearly a family run business, a labour of love. So so great.
