Pub food with a well stocked bar. The best part is the amazing view and in nice weather you can sit outside the live music on a Friday night is also great!

i like the atmosphere and tried the steam twice for breakfast, due to the great view of the sea,but each time the food was horrible.the eggs were sloppy, the mushrooms and beans were cold, and a full breakfast doesn't come with toast!(you have to pay extra ?! disappointing because on first impressions its a nice place

Food great but early evening if you want to talk to your family and friends, too noisy due to band playing. Later on yes but 7.30 pm.. We just wanted to chat and eat but too noisy.

Excellent, reasonably priced food and a fantastic view of the Newquay coastline. Friendly staff too. Only downside was having to order at the bar which isn't really a problem.

My wife and I visited Newquay on the last day of a late spring holiday. We were very disappointed by the place; unlike other places we had visited in Cornwall during the week, Newquay lacked any real atmosphere at this time of the year. So we were pleased to come across the Steam Bar and the impressive views of the... More

Had walked from Fistral through town looking for a place to have a lemonade. This place was spot on. Friendly staff, giant bar area, great beer garden. Stunning views!
