We have dined at The Steamer for the last two evenings and have not been disappointed. We have been coming here for many years now because the food is always good, the staff friendly and helpful! They are even in the summer when they are very busy! Give it a try!

Busy, popular place with great view of the seafront. Had lunch for four, arrived very quick and meals were hot and tasty. Great for just a drink or a meal, family orientated.

Food served all day, Traditional PUB GRUB cooked and served by friendly and inviting people. The food quality if excellent and the portion sizes are just right for a huge appetite. Location would be fantastic during the summer.. Now during the winter its a bit bleak and cold.. but the Pub is warm and welcoming..

Great pub food in lovely surroundings, we always visit the Steamer Inn when we are in the Isle of Wight, very welcoming. My husband had a burger which he said was lovely and my daughter had a really nice vegetarian option, I had fish and chips and all the meals were good, great value, good selection of cider.

....along the promenade on a cold but sunny afternoon in January, this nautically themed pub was the perfect place to sit with an excellent mug of coffee and watch the tide coming in. Didn't eat here but the food we saw being served looked great and prices seemed reasonable. Welcoming service and warm ambience...lovely!

We have visited several times with family and friends. Always had really good and efficient service and also found the staff friendly and good natured. Good varied menu and drinks selections and portions are generous too…..so make sure you are quite hungry if ordering 3 courses! Loads of seating room and didn't feel 'squashed up' like you can do in... More
