All reviews old village lovely pub mock tudor medieval feel nice beer garden proper pub sun trap real character friendly bar staff excellent selection stepping back in time band playing visit shanklin thatched roof out of season landlord ales

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.
