“Good location and good bar food.”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

Ate here one evening the food was the usual bar fayre, the service was good. We sat near a window overlooking the beach, unfortunately the weather was poor but if fine it would have provided good sunset location.

“Stunning Views From The Beer Garden”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

A good sized pub set within a large hotel. This place is very child friendly and has an excellent outdoor area with a decent childrens play area. The views across the bay are spectacular and well worth a visit just for this. We never ate here this year, but we have in previous years, and the food was good quality and reasonably priced when we did. Alcohol prices are what you would expect in Newquay, but some brands are quite pricey compared to other establishments. I recall the till showing £4.05 for a pint of Berry Rattler Cider which I think is getting far too high. The service could be better here, with some of the bar staff seeming to forget what a queue is and serving the nearest person to them, rather than the person waiting the longest. We regularly had to wait in the region of 10 minutes before getting served. Overall though, a good place to visit and well worth a look.

“Good Food”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

During recent stay in Newquay went to Steam twice, meals were nice, nothing over the top but good value for the price. Massive pub with patio area and good views, although the windows at the back would benefit from a clean !

“Friendly helpful staff”

The food was good in both quality and quantity and good vegetarian options. Good choice of beers and wine and a big screen to watch the opening of the Paralympics
