Friendly staff, dogs welcome.

Friendly staff, reasonable food with large portions but perhaps a little pricey. My husband and son had burger and chips each and I had one of the specials which was a whole mackerel, salad and new potatoes. Our dog was very happy too as he was welcomed and given a bowl of water and a dog treat... read more

Used to enjoy Steamer Inn for many years in the past. After a few years break was disappointed. They removed large ship's steampipes by the entrance and some decorations which removed some of the character this place possessed in the past. As for food... Kids portions were large and kids' comments were very favorable. As for the pork chop -... More

An impromptu visit to the Isle of Wight over bank holiday weekend bought us to this restaurant and it was the perfect end to our day. The food was fantastic, very reasonably priced and a good selection/variety. Any fish / seafood lover would not go wrong coming here. Talking value for money, the portion sizes are incredible so you definitely... More

We had dinner here during a stay in Shanklin. The food was ok quality but large portions and good value for money. Lots of gluten free options marked on the menu and gluten free deserts available on the specials board to including a delicious sticky toffee pudding!

We visited yesterday evening, a Monday around 7pm and it was still very busy, the tables outside were empty giving the impression the place was quiet but once inside a different story all together. That said we were able to get a table straight away, albeit next to two others both with dogs, well behaved though. We ordered one hot... More

A lunchtime visit with family. Food was fantastic and the price was very reasonable. Loads of variety on the menu - I suggest if you like fish then this is the place for you. (no pun) You won't leave hungry as the portions are very good. The best food I have had on my 10 day holiday. I can't wait... More

Have visited the Steamer Inn several times whilst holidaying on the Isle of Wight. It has become a firm family favourite! Always excellent meals at good prices. Great selection of food - something for everyone.

This pub was recommended to us by our hotel owner, and was a brilliant recommendation. Hearty, generous servings of great pub grub, and excellent, cheerful service. Would definitely visit again
