Regular diners at the Crab Inn. Never disappointed. Always value for money. Fish and chips are better than anywhere else , in our opinion.

A beautifully traditional thatched pub, Crab in the village of Shanklin on the Isle of Wight is mentioned in the Domesday Book. Boasting charming original features and a rustic feel throughout, there is al fresco seating, as well as weekly quizzes and live music.

Specialising in trusty, home-cooked British recipes, the Crab menu is made up of time-honoured classics and inventive chef’s specials. The signature beef & ale pie is a creation from much-loved celebrity chef Tom Kerridge, while favourite world flavours include sizzling steak fajitas, or aubergine and roast beetroot curry. Gourmet sandwiches and jacket potatoes are served throughout the day, and guests can round things off with an indulgent crumble, cheesecake or sundae.

The drinks list at Crab pub features carefully chosen beers and international wines, and a lengthy list of soft drinks. Younger diners are not forgotten, with a varied menu for both lunch and dinner, and a mini roast served on Sundays.

A wonderful example of British pub tradition, Crab is close to the coast, and only 12 minutes' walk from Shanklin Rail Station.

    Very friendly staff especially behind the bar. Food came quickly. Menus on tables could have done with a wipe. Also table was a bit sticky. Nice enough food. Reasonably priced.
