We had not visited previously but had read good reviews and booked in advance. We were very pleased with the whole experience, good quality food and reasonable prices but in an atmosphere which w very relaxed and quite informal. Many others who were dining appeared to be regulars, surely a good sign? The menu offers sufficient choice but not vast... More

Called in on the off chance without booking and was greeted by Steve who offered us a table straight a way. The menu has a fairly limited choice but as everything on it sounded really good it was difficult to make a choice. We started with crab cakes and baked figs which were delicious, followed by pork medallions and Cod... More

We've been to Shanklin on numerous times and happened to find this restaurant by chance. The food is exceptional and staff very friendly and knowledgeable about the food they serve. Restaurant is nice, clean and has a nice atmosphere. We'll be going back and that's a definite!

Pendleton's is an intimate bistro-style restaurant offering a concise menu of quality dishes at reasonable prices. All the meat and fish is obtained from local suppliers and is served with a good selection of freshly-prepared vegetables. I can especially recommend the soup of the day, pork medallions and fish dishes- a different fish features each day. Also try to leave... More

We recently spent five nights in Shanklin and were lucky enough to have Pendletons just round the corner from where we were staying. It was so good, we ate there three times! Although the menu is not vast, the food is delicious and beautifully presented. I don't eat meat, but this wasn't a problem. The fish dishes were cooked to... More

We strolled here from where we were staying. With maybe a dozen tables, the place quickly fills. Quick, attentive service. We enjoyed two appetizers, the crab cakes and the baked figs. The figs in particular were a nice surprise. We both ordered the pork medallions...also good. Dessert list descriptions looked enticing but we had no more room. Appreciated gluten free... More

if you are wanting a fine dining experience- can recommend. Avoid the Italian on the main strip unless you just want a pizza.

My husband and I had been recommended by Andy and Jo from the excellent Shoreside Inn to go to Pendletons, and just like the Shoreside this place diserves 5*, we were made very welcome in the warm and cosy atmosphere and the food was lovely. The crab cakes were just the best. All the food was freshly prepared and served... More

We ate at Pendletons on the last night of our holiday and our only regret was that we hadn't eaten there earlier in our stay as we would definitely have returned several times! The food was excellent and the service was very friendly. We will definitely be returning when we next come to the Island.
