Our homely Guest House, Bistro and Bar is situated in a superb location right on the seafront on Shanklin’s Esplanade, with panoramic sea views and just a stone’s throw from the sandy, Blue Flag 2012 and Quality Coast Award 2012 beach. This is a perfect place for a family beach holiday with the children or a peaceful weekend break away from the hustle and bustle of the mainland.

We are a free house and offer a wide selection of Isle of Wight ales, lagers, wines & spirits, together with a straightforward, homely menu that features local steaks and seafood in addition to the usual seaside favourites.
