A family favourite to lunch with tasty crab pastie and succulent mackerel ciabatta. Perfectly presented and in the perfect location. Worth the descent and the climb back.

Popped in for lunch. Albeit a steep walk down and then back up with a full stomach. Little gem. Highly recommend.

Owned by the fishing family who live at Steephill Cove, the Crab Shed is the business! A totally fresh, simple, short menu - something a lot more IOW restaurants should try adopting.

Location location location!
A perfect place to get the best crab pasty or the best crab burger this side of France.
Friendly service in the most prettiest of Isle of Wight coves.
Great sea views from your wooden table surrounded by crab fishing pots.
These guys have been catching crabs offshore for over a hundred years, get the weather right and you could be anywhere in the world.
