On a long weekend in shanklin we went to The Steamer Inn twice. The first time as we needed a dog friendly restaurant. We went back a second time as the prices were reasonable, food good and portions huge. The dog was particularly pleased on the second visit as they provided a bowl of water and gave him a Bonio!...

I often visit the Island on sunny weekends as my parents live in Sandown, as a group of 4 (parents, my husband and I) we picked the steamer on shanklin seafront. I'm not sure where to start. The shocking service by the scruffy looking staff, the overpriced poor quality menu or the food itself. It was edible, just. No part... More

We spotted the Steamer Inn - was allowed to take the dogs inside and had a lovely few hours with great beers, very good food and such helpful staff. The dogs got to eat too when they were presented with a lovely biscuit each!! Liked... More

We've always found the Steamer Inn to be consistent, fairly priced and good sized portions in a nice location. The food is not gastro but it's hot, fresh and tasty and perfect for a lunchtime bite. Quick service which is a bonus with a small child and very friendly staff. Nice to sit outside in warmer months and enjoy the... More

I was visiting family on the island and so we booked a table Sunday lunchtime. Four of us had the roast need and one had the turkey. The portions were huge and everything was cooked to perfection! The place was very clean and well kept with lots of sea paraphernalia. The staff were also so friendly giving our dogs (who... More

Very good food and a good selection of ales on tap. I had steak which was perfectly adequate, albeit a little overdone for my liking. My husband had a Lamb tagine, which was very nice. The ice creams however are to die for, really lovely, well worth a visit if you are eating in shanklin.

After staying in Shanklin, we decided to walk down to the seafront and eat with a view of sand, sea and passing ships. I had Tandoori Chicken which consisted of Tandoori chicken breast, naan bread, mango chuntney dip, chunky chips and a lovely array of salad leaves. It came on a huge plate and was such good value for £10.95.... More
