The Steamer Inn (Shanklin, Isle of Wight) ... waterside locations on the Isle of Wight. With panoramic views across the English Channel and a superb, safe, sandy beach just a pebble's throw away, you would be hard pressed to find a better base for a holiday on the Island.
Newest Review: ... changing and kept out children mesmerised throughout the evening. We went there for dinner and were pleasantly surprised. At first glance the menu seems expensive. £9 for a beefburger is ridiculous, but the burger that turned up almost justified the price tag. One freshly sliced crusty bap with two quarter pounders interspersed with bacon and a ridiculous quantity of very runny cheese which ... more

The manager was good at refunding our money though, and it is a nice view, but dont eat here!

We overlooked the ocean and there was nothing to distract us from the fabulous viws which were constantly changing and kept out children mesmerised throughout the evening. We went there for dinner and were pleasantly surprised. At first glance the menu seems expensive. £9 for a beefburger is ridiculous, but the burger ... Read the complete review

The beautiful Isle of Wight town of Shanklin has a gorgeous section of the coast of which there are many hotels, pubs and restaurants ready to offer the locals and tourists alike a good meal to go with their sea views. On our recent stay in Shanklin, the daily ritual of walking up and down the promenade looking at menus to decide where was going to serve us dinner that night brought us to The Steamer Inn. Located about ½ way along Shanklin's seafront, it was easily the most interesting looking establishment form the outside, with an appropriate nautical theme. On entering I was pleased to see the nautical theme continued, on the inside of the doors ... Read the complete review
