The Steamer Inn

Great Food, Real Ales

and Live Music

The terrace at The Steamer Inn affords panoramic views across Sandown Bay to the English Channel. Situated right on Shanklin Esplanade, it’s a lovely spot to enjoy some of the Isle of Wight’s best fresh seafood from our specials board or perhaps while away a relaxing afternoon.

Enjoy an extensive wine list and fine selection of real ales and beers. Families will feel especially welcome as the patio and veranda look out on miles of sandy beaches. During the ‘new normal’ we are taking table reservations, please call us on 01983 862641 to book. Muddy boots and well behaved dogs are welcome.

Food & Drink

We’re always looking to use as much local seafood and produce as possible at The Steamer Inn. Our menu varies throughout the year, but favourites such as the famous ‘Seafood Chowder’ will always be on the menu.

Nautical memorabilia decorates the entire pub, from the giant propeller that stands by the main entrance to the traditional fisherman’s glass floats that decorate the veranda. 

The Steamer Inn is also an ideal base for your family holiday or short break. Take a look at our eight en suite rooms.

The Steamer Inn on Shanklin Esplanade is a family run business. We are looking forward to a future of providing people with a warm, welcome atmosphere, great food and great real ale in one of the best seaside locations on the Isle of Wight.
