We visit Cornwall for 2 weeks every year and eat at Steam probably around 5 times. The food is fantastic, can't understand previous comments saying the food is average! The fish and chips is delicious, lovely, crunchy, non-greasy batter and the fish is skinless and lovely and white. The chips are crunchy on the outside and soft inside. The spaghetti... More

Had lunch here as a group of four. Perhaps the menu is a bit tired but the specials were good. The view from the terrace is stunning. Drinks and food all good value.

Lovely drinks and the food was lovely. Quite large portions that I wish there was an option for half size portions. Will be returning to try and sit either near a window or on the terrace.

Typical pub food kind of place but pleasant enough. Trouble is, Newquay has gone up a gear on food and that makes this place very average. Plenty of better options out there.

We come to Newquay every year and have visited this restaurant again. This year it was just to have a dessert after a meal somewhere else and also coincided with the place running a quiz night as part of Newquay Carnival week. Nice environment, good menu, good desserts. Staff good.
