If your looking for somewhere out the way of people eating where you can enjoy a proper beer in a proper pub, then head on down

This Bar will not appeal to everybody, but personally, I love it. It's a Local's Local. They serve Good Beer, there is a Nice Beer Garden, which is a Sun Trap. The interior may seem a little dark to some people, but I like it....More

CAMRA pub of the year several times? The beer is ok ( not amazing) but what a dismal environment. The toilets were a disgrace. The fittings were years old, hanging off the wall and dirty. Very dirty. The smell was awful, discernable from the pub...More

Dropped in tonight for a pint in the garden. Lovely garden which leads down to an old bridge as part of the Chine. Really good drinks prices and friendly service! Lovely old interesting building too.

We visit Shanklin from the mainland every other month or so and also head straight here. Good bear, good atmosphere and Mike behind the bar is a real charcter once you see past his dry sense of humour, looking forward to visiting this weekend :-)

I love this place, Mike keeps you coming back with his repartee and of course the excellent selection of perfectly kept ales. Been lucky to catch some great music nights too, it does not do food, but a bag of crisps is all that is...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.
