We are open and serving our full-men all day from 11am to 5pm (last food orders 4.30pm). We look forward to welcoming you and providing the weather is reasonably outdoor friendly we will strive to be open. So please check the Shanklin weather before arriving! We are unable to take bookings this summer though we have lots of garden tables so even in busy times there should be available seating or only a short wait. We look forward to seeing you.
