Nice friendly staff, good location, decent food (although a little pricey on the drinks!). Does what it says on the tin really. Food was reasonably priced and a good choice, portion sizes good, and arrived promptly.

Never having been to the Isle of Wight before, we chose the Steamer (online) purely on its photo and its reasonable tariff and crossed our fingers. We had a very pleasant surprise when we got there - a lovely room, recently decorated in seaside hues, with a balcony that overlooks the sea, a huge ensuite and very comfortable bed.The staff...

Went here for dinner earlier this week. Staff were friendly and fab location and nice inside. We has been here for dinner on a day trio last year and remembered it as being nice food with generous portions. Sadly this time the fish was burnt as were my daughters chicken goujons. My pie of the day meal was obviously microwaved... More

Chose this place at random , lucky to get a table on the terrace overlooking the sea, my family & I had a lovely meal, very large portions, My only complaint could be the choice in entertainment but we still had a great meal.

Excellent food, enormous portions, great value for money. Brian ate off the specials board every night for two weeks. Mostly local caught fish. The chiefs are excellent in all aspects of cooking and presentation. Cannot fault the quality of food. The front of house staff are knowledgeable in all aspects of service. There is a great atmosphere and professionalism with... More

I love staying at The Steamer, and have done so three times this year. The rooms provide tea, coffee, hot chocolate facilities, and a jug of fresh milk is always available at the bar. Also, there is no extra charge if you would like a meal delivered to your room. My favourite rooms are the balcony rooms with unobstructed sea... More

Our third lunch time visit. Perfect setting overlooking the sea. Maybe a little over priced but fresh and good sized portions. Service excellent and very welcoming. I had the fresh crab salad with chunky bread wedges, new potatoes and loads of salad. Very filling. Didn't need dessert.
