Love the food at The Crab Public House and the Fisherman's Cottage by the beach. The Village Inn a little pricey but quality choice and food. For a snack during the day i would head for Pencil Cottage nice welcome, lovely staff and choice of snacks / light meals

A mixture of the very old, the thatched village is beautiful, but the newer town is full of little shops and boutiques, no big chain stores :-). Beach is clean and safe. Lots of pretty pubs, restaurants and beach front bars. Something for every one. Would definitely consider moving to Shanklin.
