The perfect base for your Island getaway, situated on Shanklin Esplanade directly opposite the beach. The Steamer Inn boasts some of the best views on the Isle of Wight with panoramic views across Sandown Bay and the English Channel. Shanklin Esplanade is a bustling resort and The Steamer Inn takes pride of place right in the heart of it all. Whether you are looking for a night, a weekend or more The Steamer Inn is perfect for families and couples as well as those travelling alone or visiting the Island on business. Offering five comfortable en-suite rooms, guests can enjoy a hearty complimentary full English breakfast as part of their stay plus free WIFI and the option of a private balcony overlooking the sea. Within the pub, an extensive main menu and specials board are available with a focus on locally sourced fish and meats from across the Island. A number of special dietary requirements are catered for including vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free. Complement your meal with a drink from the extensive wine list and range of gins and whiskey, or try a locally brewed real ale from the bar. During warmer months, guests can relax on the terrace gazing out across the sandy beaches and in the winter season cosy up in the nautical themed bar.
