Very friendly staff and good beer. We were here for drinks only and it was spot on. Must be a great place to visit on a summer's night. Let's hope we can call back.

Stopped off for lunch having walked to Shanklin along the coast from Sandown. This pub was one of a few options on the Esplanade. It looked relaxed, lots of outside eating space (we visited on a sunny day) and had the most people eating outside. The menu was varied and reasonably priced. We chose a mixture of sandwiches (came with... More

We were in Shanklin for our annual spring/ summer get together. We went to The Steamer on both Friday and Saturday night. The food was excellent- portions massive so don't over order! Great views over Shanklin beach and really nice to have the patio heaters on for us outside diners.
