I'm looking for a recommendation for a pub in Sandown to take a group of approx. 10-12 hikers, maybe more that are mostly 30 somethings. We don't really want anything too rowdy, more like a quiet pint and space to sit and chat but it must do food and a real ale helps as well. We'll be there for the mid summer weekend 20-22 June.
We'll then be heading southbound on the saturday and finishing up our walk (that bits sorted) in Shanklin so I'm looking for something similar there. It'll be midsummers day so I'm guessing we can walk back to our accommodation in Sandown at sunset.
Any advice anyone? We're avoiding the Walking Festival on purpose - more space for us!
Thanks in advance
