This pub is situated right on shanklin beach. The nautical theme is fitting and the place is very welcoming. The food is your average pub grub bit it's hot and plentiful and does what it says on the tin.

Food here is nice. The portions are huge! None of us could finish. Staff are friendly. Nice atmosphere. Were about to have a band play but we left before to get the kids home. Pudding was lovely. Great location. The views from outside seating are stunning.

We stayed three nights recently and the staff were wonderful. They went out of their way to help with a problem we had and made our stay very welcoming. Lovely food, delicious ale and great sea views. Definitely coming back.

Very busy so we had to wait for a table. Not for long though. Everyone was very efficient. The massive plates of fish and chips arrived fairly quickly. The salad looked like it had been sat on the plate all day!! The fish was lovely. I did manage to eat it all but the mound of chips was just out... More

Nice decking area with friendly, helpful staff. Good food and beer at a reasonable price. Facilities clean and well maintained. Recommended for families with small kids. Nothing too much trouble for waiting staff.

Had late lunch here on a Sunday, good menu (not just the usual Sunday roast) and beautiful location. Quick service and polite staff; food portions were huge. Both of us had fresh fish and it was delicious. Would definitely recommend and would visit again.

We went into the Steamer Inn mainly because the menu looked more interesting than the other food places along the front. The service was good and the staff friendly, the food was ok, I've had much worse but also had better. Price wise I guess we paid about the same here as we would anywhere for this kind of meal....
