We first stayed at the steamer inn over 11 years ago and have since moved to the island and although the staff have changed the quality and customer service has aalways been of the highest level as has the food. This is always very busy in summer and used by the locals all throughout the year.g

Went here over the bank holiday weekend as was on a day trip from the mainland - asked if we could book a table for 6pm but apparently they'd hit there quota for bookings so it was going to be first come first served... Needless to say didn't bother and went to The Village Inn instead which was amazing

The Steamer is a favourite with my 3 boys and so we went for a Sunday treat when my wife was away on the mainland. As we were being joined by two friends, i wisely chose to book our table for six at 1pm. The place was packed and people were being advised of a long wait for tables. That... More

Staying in Shanklin and celebrating my Son's birthday on 15th April, we enjoyed a delicious evening meal, excellent service and very friendly polite staff. We enjoyed dishes of sirloin and rump steak also butterfly chicken all cooked to perfection. At the end of the meal we ordered brandy liquor coffees which, again were well presented and brought to our table... More

Our family has stayed here once before. The rooms have been renovated prior to this season so are very fresh, everything is clean and tidy. The downstairs bar decor is all nautical, and nicely themed. It has a very cosy feel and is a great place to settle down in the evening for a meal and/or a drink. The rooms... More

Popped in here for an evening meal, the older of the female barstaff (Scots I think) behind the bar to start with was not particularly friendly. She was training up a young girl, but considering I had never been in the place before, was brash when I ordered a drink and tried to order some food at the same time.... More

Family Day Out In Shanklin And We Decided To Treat Ourselves To Lunch Out At The Steamer Inn. I usually always opt for a roast and I decided on the beef , I'm disappointed to say it was really not nice , the beef was basically inedible , the rest was not great ( burnt potatoes and yorkshire puddings )...

This restaurant was recommended to us by friends and family to take guests visiting the island to for dinner on Saturday evening. The restaurant was in a beautiful location and we really felt we'd made a good choice. The waiter who served us came over to let us know they had run out of lasagne, while we checked the menu...

What can I say? Been here many times and every time has been a good 'un. The food is good quality, decent quantity pub grub. Not hard to see why it's packed during the season, but nice to see that they maintain their standards when the town isn't so busy. Yummy!
