“Lovely location & excellent food”
Reviewed 16 March 2011

The food was home cooked & the pub gave a very warm welcome. It would probably be even better in the summer.

“Excellent Food, and the most beautiful location.”
Reviewed 6 December 2010

We are a family of 3. And have been to the IOW many times. But for some reason had not eaten in the Fishermans Cottage. But on our last visit to the IOW we ate in the Fishermans Cottage twice. One lunch time, and one evening. The food was absolutely excellent on both occassions. The menu is varied. Lunch times they do wonderful sandwiches, fresh seafood, cheese, ham etc. They also serve hot food too at lunch times. They also serve a variety of foods in the evening too. We were blessed with the British weather as it was very hot and sunny. The pub is right on the beach. You really could not get any nearer to the sea. The view was absolutely stunning. The Fishermans Cottage was very busy on both occasions. But it was May bank holiday. Although, we did not have to wait very long for our food at all. There is also a good selection of larger and ales so my husband has just informed me too.

I know for sure that when we go back to the Shanklin again (in the not too distant future). We are all looking forward to go back to the Fishermans Cottage again.
