Good range of real ales (one of my weaknesses). Standard pub food but plenty of choice and generous portions. It's best to book, as it's very popular and rightly so.

Enjoyed the beers on tap, and we were sorted out with a group table, even though they claim not to reserve tables. There was some live music on, but it was not intrusive where we were sitting.

Called in for lunch on a walk from Sandown to Shanklin and very very pleased we picked the Steamer Inn. Very friendly and helpful staff and an excellent selection of real ales, some brewed on the IOW, the ones we had were in very good condition. Decided to have a lighter snack as the main course portions looked very big,... More

The title just about sums it up - strolling along the beach we happened upon this bar/restaurant in a line if half a dozen similar establishments. Now don't ask me why we selected this particular restaurant (maybe its the attractive blue sun shades) but we were all so glad we stopped here Upon first viewing the menu it looks quite... More

We liked the look of this place as we walked past so decided to stop off for an early evening meal. We were not disappointed, I had the cod and chips, lovely light batter, and it made a change to have non salted chips, plenty of salad and peas. My wife had jacket potato with prawns and a side of...
