Always a pleasure to visit the Strawberry Thatch for tea and cakes - or ice creams and milkshakes in better weather. The homemade cakes are always wonderful and the service is friendly too, and so on this occasion it was a welcome stop off in the rain. Payment is by cash only so make sure you're prepared for that.

Having parked in the car park opposite we decided to go in as it looked a nice place to sit outside. It all looked clean and well kept in side and had a great choice of cakes. We chose the chocolate cake and apple pie, both were fresh and very tasty. Would defiantly recommend a visit, especially on a hot day when you can sit outside.

We stopped off here for a much needed sit down after tramping around Shanklin (old, new, and beachside) for a few hours. The menu was as expected in an establishment like this and had something to please the whole family. We enjoyed decent quality sandwiches and soup and, of course, scones with cream and jam. With friendly staff and efficient service, there's nothing to say other than if in Shanklin Old Village, give this place a try! Only disappointment was lack of card payment facility which, in this day and age, is a must for any establishment. New players in the card payment market with cost models a fraction of the main players allow even the smallest establishments to offer card payments cost efficiently so come on Strawberry - embrace the 21st century!

Thank you for taking the time to give this extensive and positive review and pleased you enjoyed all your food.
The part about card payment did give me a laugh because your so right. I've just been fighting it for so long, but I know I need to sort it. Point taken ;)
Thanks again :)
