Although we've been to Shanklin many times we had never visited King Harry's Bar before but during the Beer and Bus weekend we visited twice and its now top of our favourite pubs in Shanklin Old Village. The pub is very quirky with a medieval...More

Before our visit read reviews and noted the fact it had won many camra awards but also that it was possibly unwelcoming. First impressions were that the outside of the premises looked very unkept, and the sign outside stating dress code made you immediately feel...More

Visited Monday evening, lovely pub, chatty barman from Harrow who could not do enough to make us welcome Visited Tuesday, Barman could not pull a pint of Guinness, disinterested and generally unwelcoming. Will be checking who is on shift before entering tonight

Visited one afternoon and sat in the lovely beer garden, and called in again the next evening as we found it such a pleasant place for a drink. Beautiful building with thatched roof and beer garden is away from the busy street above.

We first first attracted to the Crab Inn in Shanklin by its picture postcard exterior, once we walked inside we were disappointed by the modern interior, all of its original character had disappeared. Thankfully the close by King Harrys pub had both a picturesque thatched...More

I don't know about that, but having been going to pubs for 36 years I found the welcome poor. The landlord seemed too busy to chat with cronies than serve, leaving the barmaid to do all the work.
