A cafe in a garden but a lovely location, friendly staff and amazing floral displays and have fun watching people playing crazy golf. A mix of undercover and outdoor seating. A hugh range of choice of sandwiches and cakes. Nothing fancy but a lovely low-key location and not far from the spectactular views over the sea from the gardens. Lovely peaceful place.

We've been visiting this pretty, tucked away tea garden within Rhylstone public gardens in Shanklin since our daughter was very young (she's now 24) and we're still always keen to go there for lunch or a drink. There are tables in sunny spots or under shelter/umbrellas and the area (hard surface, ideal for prams/wheelchairs) is surrounded by lovely bedding plants in pots and containers with a small crazy golf course in the middle to keep children (and adults) occupied. The food is excellent, typical English tea garden menu, well priced and we have often called on our way back to the mainland for sandwiches/rolls/cakes,etc to eat on the way back. The staff are always pleasant and helpful and we feel we always get value for our money. You may even see a red squirrel or two in the trees which shelter the gardens. To find this little oasis, take the path at the side of the Chine by The Crab Inn and go up the steps on the left after the top entrance to the Chine. Alternatively continue on the path and turn left onto the lawned area of the public gardens and the tea garden entrance is diagonally opposite. Afterwards, continue on round on one of the paths to Rhylstone Manor from where you can access a cliff top path with great views across Sandown Bay and forms to sit on. I believe there are also events in the public gardens from time to time but I have no current details. I wish I had photos to post on this site, its full of colourful planting for most of the year.
