“Fantastic!!!!”
Reviewed July 15, 2013 via mobile

My parents, my brother and I came here as it came highly recommended and we are so glad we did, the food was fantastic, my brother and parents had the cheesy streaker burger and I had the butterfly garlic chicken, the chicken was cooked perfectly, my family also didnt have a bad word to say about the food. The portion size was large and it was at a great price well worth every penny we paid and we will definately be dining here again before we leave.

This place is excellent. The food is delicious. It offers a range of traditional pub food and also a special menu which consists of more fancy food whic is also delicious. The view while your eating is beautiful and it is just such a lovely place to eat.

I would especially like to say how brilliant the staff are. All friendly and polite and very helpful. In particular a young woman who was so helpful to us willing to go the extra mile for us when we encountered a situation that almost made us miss our ferry and would of meant us leaving our food untouched.

Overall I enjoyed eating and drinking here every night. I shall miss such great food and friendly service. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

Staying in Sandown we walked to Shanklin and came across the Steamer Inn. Bar was very busy with diners and we bought a drink and sat outside. Nice view and relaxing time was had watching the world go by.

We visited this pub during the May day Bank holiday week end. It is a very busy place and has many more tables outside than in. We arrived at a busy time and asked for a table for three, they didn't have any available but put our names on a list. We got drinks from the bar and sat on a sofa waiting. They could have got more tables in this area but have opted not to. After about twenty minutes they offered a shared table of five with another couple. We were hungry so agreed, what a novel way to make new friends and share stories. More places should do this, it certainly makes commercial sense if both parties are in agreement. The food is a satisfactory standard although I had the Chilli and had an upset tummy all night and next morning which I can only put down to this place. Hubby had the gammon and granddaughter had a children's burger and chips and they were fine. We have eaten here before and the standard has always been just above average. Desserts are overpriced and had a very limited choice. They struggle to cope when all the terrace is used and standards can slip a bit. Wouldn't be put off going again as the sea views and the sunsets are to die for. Only hope they don't get too complacent as there is lots of places along the esplanade one can eat.

This is our second review of The Steamer, having previously visited it in summer 2010. It has the same great location (with an expanded outside eating area?) and nice decor. This time we had a party of 6 people arriving unannounced at about 6pm on a Bank Holiday Monday. We were seated very quickly, the staff were all very polite and our order was taken quickly. Excellent! We felt that the food was an improvement on last time we visited - tasty and delivered quickly (our only criticism would be that the one burger we ordered tasted quite cheap). Choice of beer and wine is adequate but not outstanding. Unfortunately there was no live music on the evening we visited, but having seen live acts here in the past, we can recommend coming when live music is offered. All inaver a very pleasant evening.

Room Tip: If you haven't reserved a table, get there by 6pm at the latest to be sure you'll get seated...
