Staff friendly and welcoming and knowledgeable. Food is very good. I wanted a sausage sandwich and the sausages where good quality. Wife had a salad which was very good for her too.
I've already said this but these people have got the skill to make customers friendly.
It's a lovely village setting so a good morning in May with that great weather last year just perfect.

Stopped off for lunch at the Pencil cottage in the old village of Shanklin.I love the ploughmans and cream teas there,the price is a bit higher but worth it for the food and location.Nice to sit outside even though it was drizzly rainy we had the umbrella up

I was fascinated by the 'extra's in the Pencil Cottage.Their allegiance to local & international charity work was very encouraging.Dogs are allowed & the shop was fascinating.
