Excellent food, brilliant service. The food is lovely and large portions as well. Well worth a visit. You must go, we frequent the steamer at Shanklin, every time we go to the Island. Always very busy and so many people remark on the food and service.

Wipe clean surfaces that were sticky, get your own menu and cutlery, queue for food and drinks for 20 minutes. Fast food quality at a snails pace. Not recommended if you have taste buds or any sense of self worth, smell, or sanity. Otherwise nice.

We ordered scampi, spinach & feta pie and a jacket potato all of which was excellent and substantial portions. Reasonably priced and you certainly get a lot for your...

This is the third time, I have visited The Steamer Inn in Shanklin and yet again, another lovely meal. All seven of us had a lovely meal and a great evening, with sea views. Also dog friendly, great bonus.

We had one meal here and I sent back my prawn cocktail as I didn’t want to eat tiny shrimp like ‘prawns’ in a runny sauce. I had a bit of a run in with the Duty Manager who didn’t want to accept that my opinion was valid at all and initially didn’t want to give me a replacement dish....
