I was charged £12.00 for a baked potato.... :/ Very generous ice creams which were delicious and good selection of teas. On the whole it was good. Very popular with the locals. The sticky toffee pudding was delicious. One of the best I've had.

Good choice of meals, cakes and drinks. Recommend the milk shakes. Cream teas are good. Every time we visit Shanklin, we always visit. The history of the Cottage is very interesting.

We ate here twice for evening meals and both meals were excellent. We also had a cheeky cream tea one afternoon. The scones were home made and very fruity... best we’ve had in a long time.
