The Caulkheads in Sandown is perfect whatever the weather. If the sun is shining then make the most of the beer garden complete with a bouncy castle and climbable pirate ship. If British summer turns into showers, head inside to play in the ball pit or on one of the many rides and games machines throughout the pub.
Get your sugar rush and your art on, at Arty Shakes in Shanklin. Kids will love to paint an array of ceramics as well as indulge with one of their legendary milkshakes, possibly the best anywhere. Finish off with a homemade Belgian waffle…forget the diet, they’re totally worth it!
