We went to the Steamer Inn as it was busy and seemed popular and we weren't wrong. Our food had a long delay but the staff made up for that with excellent customer service and a free drink.

A decent meal with friends. Live music provided by local band which was good, without being overpowering.

Saturday evening the place was heaving we had booked a table and shown straight to it. 5of us ordered different meals and it all arrived within 20 minutes. All meals were of a good size and served perfectly. I had the belly bloater burger, Fantastic. None of us could manage a desert although they also looked great. Would have eaten... More

We ate here for an early tea one evening with our young son. The Steamer has a good and extensive menu and the service was speedy. Food was decent, nothing gourmet, but good pub food. I'd recommend it for family eating and would go again.

Evening meal. Mrs had prawn salad. I had a steak. The prawns were pretty tasteless and clearly defrosted but the salad was good. The steak was pretty bland but cooked as ordered. All in all a pretty bland meal. Nothing to complain about I just would not choose to repeat...

The Steamer Inn was chosen by a friend of ours - a good choice! The menu catered for all tastes around our table of 6 - while the quantity of food in a couple of dishes was a little overwhelming (not a complaint!) the quality matched it. Piping hot and very acceptable service time fort all courses. Good value wines... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our meal tonight. We all had something different and everything was served promptly and piping hot. The portion sizes almost defeated us but the food was so lovely we had to keep going! Will definitely be back! Many thanks

We walked along the seafront on a lovely sunny day looking for a quality restaurant for lunch. Thank goodness we came across the Steamer Inn as we had almost given up hope! There were plenty of tables outside either in the sun or shade to take advantage of the lovely sea view. We both had the prawn salad which was... More

We've been dropped in here quite a few times over the years and it's always been good. I'm not a great believer in leaving multiple reviews on the same place but I thought I would on the occasion.as they' deserve it. I don't know if there's been a change of the management but all the staff we met were really... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave this lovely review. The ownership of this pub has been the same for around 15 years now. Although the staff obviously has slowly changed over the years. I'm glad that the currant crop where warm and welcoming towards you. Hopefully we will see you again in the not so distant future. Karen More
