“Good food”
Reviewed October 7, 2013 via mobile

Very good food and a good selection of ales on tap. I had steak which was perfectly adequate, albeit a little overdone for my liking. My husband had a Lamb tagine, which was very nice. The ice creams however are to die for, really lovely, well worth a visit if you are eating in shanklin.

Stayed October 2013, traveled as a couple

After staying in Shanklin, we decided to walk down to the seafront and eat with a view of sand, sea and passing ships. I had Tandoori Chicken which consisted of Tandoori chicken breast, naan bread, mango chuntney dip, chunky chips and a lovely array of salad leaves. It came on a huge plate and was such good value for £10.95. My partner chose Smoked Haddock and broccoli gratin with a side salad and 2 large crusty bread chunks.He said it was by far the best meal he had tried on holiday and cost £10.25. We sat at front of the Inn and had a lovely view but we could of sat inside or on the decking which had outdoor heaters. Our only criticism was the price of drinks, just under 10 quid for Archers and lemonade and a pint of Stowford Press cider. However we would definitely recommend this. (We are 23 and 24 years old)

great location right overlooking seafront. rooms at front look out to sea. good value. staff very attentive and bar lots of fun. lots of seating inside and out, although it was a couple of months ago it was rather cool so outside not applicable. easy car parking at front, meter, but free at night.

Went here with the family and 2 kids the location is lovely with plenty of outside seating.
Menu choice was good plenty to choose from and the food was tasty with large portions the kids portion sizes were good too.
Had to wait about half hour for our food but we were made aware of this when we ordered.
The place was tidy and tables were clean etc.
We would visit again.

Love this place. Been here about 10 times now. Food is always good, as is the menu and service. Regardless of how busy it is you will not be disappointed! Ample portions, varied menu, good selection of specials, prime location, attentative staff, clean and ambient, what more could you ask for!

We didn't stay here but I wouldn't hestitate in doing so. During an afternoon to Shanklin we were all hungry and looking for somewhere to eat. Having walked past many places and looking at menus, we stopped outside the Steamer which didn't have a menu but somehow seemed to draw us in. So we followed our instinct and I'm glad we did. Wow what wonderful food and such a good selection to choose from. It was so good we back the next day and took my parents along aswell. Again excellent meals and value for money. The staff are also very friendly and on hand should you need anything.
Anyone passing should definitely stop by for a bite to eat.
