Keats Cottage


Ratings and reviews

Certificate of Excellence2017 - 2018 Winner

Location and contact

Keats Cottage is a boutique accommodation offering a home from home feel and a highly ranked restaurant using locally sourced produce. Owners David and Ewa believe in the little things which make people happy. Having worked for quality restauranteurs such as Sir Terrence Conran and Paul Heathcote and having broadened their horizons by working in Switzerland, the emphasis is on exceptional food and service in a home from home experience. We use the beautiful produce that is to be found on the Island and as John Keats was a keen traveller, we have decided to take on board our knowledge of Swiss and Polish cuisines, in addition to more traditional fayre in our menus.

This place feels more like a school canteen. Rude women who I’m assuming is the chef. Won’t be coming again.

Couldn’t ask for a friendlier host. The restaurant is intimate with a relaxed atmosphere perfect for any occasion. I live in Shanklin and have only just discovered this gorgeous place. Highly recommend.

We had an excellent dinner on New Years Eve - the meal was beautifully cooked and the menu was interesting. Frankly, we could have chosen any of the dishes, they all looked superb. The wine list is reasonably priced for this sort of restaurant with...More

Not really - busy road, quite narrow. Car park with disabled spaces not too far away, but the restaurant is tiny and no wheelchair access.
