Well we come here on our frequent visits to the beautiful Isle of Wight along with our other lovely island Barbados only not quite so frequently. To sit on the patio and take in the sea air either for the breakfast, lunch or dinner is so relaxing. On our first visit in 2008 we thought the place a little sloppy... More

Lovely position on the sea front. It was busy when we visited but we were found a table. Sea views as you dine. Usual pub menu but great quality and huge portions, pleasant staff. My husband always moans that pubs and restaurants skimp on the chips, not here I think he might have even left a few! Tasty steak and... More

Excellent sized portions of food, a lovely setting and feeling to the pub. We have always been made to feel extremely welcome every time we eat and drink here, along with the dog who is always given his own water bowl and bonio! The member of staff named Will attended to us at our table and is always courteous and... More

The thing that first struck me was how attractive this place was on a cold January day. The ambiance is very inviting and the sea view is just perfect, with Japanese floats and palm trees. I had an excellent meal of fish stew with crusty bread and a pint...great value and copious portions. Highly recommended, the barman was very polite... More

We visited the Steamer Inn for dinner during our holiday stay in Shanklin. The whole family enjoyed their meals while my husband especially enjoyed the beers. The food is home-cooked with plenty of variety to suit all our tastes. The services was excellent, catering to our specific requests. My daughter really appreciated the ice-cream sundaes. All in all, good value... More

Second time we have enjoyed fresh fish and chips here, the batter is not greasy and you get excellent portions making it value for money. They serve I decent pint to wash it all down too. A dog friendly pub!

Lovely restaurant/bar, overlooking the sea. Great menu and special board, so something for everyone. I had the Chicken Tikka, as curry of the day, and my son had an Hawaiian burger with chips. Both meals arrived looking very good, were very tasty, but too much and neither of us could finish. The atmosphere was lovely for a december lunchtime near... More

Visited for Sunday lunch. Had roast turkey which came with what you expect, new and roast potatoes, and six veg! Had no room for dessert which is unlike me! Prices are not cheap, but portion size reflected in price. Very good for 'pub grub'.

We have just finished eating our delicious meals. We highly recommend the Steamer Inn to everyone who visits Shanklin. The food and the service was first class. The two staff on duty tonight were very friendly and welcomed us when arrived.
