The location of attractions is intended only as a guide. Distances are 'as the crow flies'.

Nearest pub

The Crab (½ mile)

A pretty, traditional thatched roofed pub in the heart of the old village of Shanklin. Food is served all day, everyday. Child friendly and dogs are welcome. There's a large car park nearby.

Nearest beach

Shanklin Beach (¾ mile)

A safe and sandy beach with lots of nearby parking. A real traditional bucket and spade destination with amusements, crazy golf and go-carting nearby. With a high sea wall and pavement promenade this is an idea place for a stroll with views over the English Channel. Dogs are not allowed between May to the end of September. The beach has life guards during high season.

Nearest walk

Groves and Gardens Histree Trail (½ mile)

This trail, kindly available to download from, has two distance options; either just over three miles or just over four. You can explore groves, gardens and ancient woodland. You'll find plenty of places to stop off for a break and some lovely views.

Nearest town

Shanklin (½ mile)

A town so large it is split into two, the old and the new, Shanklin is perched on the south west coast. The new part of town is what you'd expect from a lovely seaside town, with a theatre at its heart that we'd thoroughly recommend. But wander out to the old time and you'll feel a world away - in another century! But in the best possible way, with cream teas and thatched cottages as well as old inns.

Also nearby

The Pointer Inn (2 ¾ miles)

Traditional pub grub but with a difference. Locals are offered a bartering exchange system where they provide local produce in exchange for meals or drinks. Great idea and upholds their intent to use local products. A garden with views across the downs and a large terrace are available for summer dining. Child and dog friendly. You may wish to book; this is a very popular place.

This is a beautiful traditional pub that serves excellent food and has staff that will go the extra mile. I love that you can order some of the dishes from the menu as a smaller portion so there is no food waste. All food is locally sourced and they can even tell you the name of the person who grew it!

The Taverners (3 miles)

A traditional country pub which uses local produce and even its own home grown herbs from a vegetable patch in the garden. There's a kids play area and a shop selling all sorts of local produce. Dogs are welcome.

A warm welcome

We booked for a meal at The Taverners after first visiting there for a drink earlier in the week. We received a warm friendly welcome and the food was excellent, plenty of choice with daily specials and a bit different to the norm. . The service was excellent and very prompt. Their local brew was also good. I would definitely recommend this establishment and would visit again when I am next on the Isle.

Routefifty7 (¼ mile)

The perfect way to explore. Hire a bike (free delivery to Shanklin, Sandown and Ventnor only) and enjoy miles of cycleways.

Shanklin Theatre (¼ mile)

The building was opened as The Institute in 1879 and went through several transformations until 1934 when it was officially called the new Town Hall and Theatre. During World War Two the theatre was used for dances and staff would push back the seats to create a dance floor. These days performances include a Christmas Panto, summer season and dance festival. Take a look at their website for a full listing of events. Children are allowed to attend certain performances however there are no baby changing facilities. The balcony and bar areas are not accessible to wheelchair users.

Morgan's Restaurant (¼ mile)

Home made food served in a friendly and welcoming environment. The menu is created using the finest local produce and includes fresh seafood dishes. Children are welcome and there is a childs menu but you are advised to reserve a table earlier in the evening.
