Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We love Steam Bar, especially Izzy behind the bar, She is so lovely, welcoming and she is always happy to see us and find out how our day is going. A great friendly place. 💕💕💕💕 It is our local place to hang out on a...weekend. As locals we l love to walk out and have a place we can relax, have food, a few drinks, listen to some live music and look at the amazing views across the Great Western beach & Harbour. Just Perfect. ❤️❤️❤️❤️ Thank you Izzy 💕💕More

Friendly, attentive staff. Julie really looked after us. We both had the pasty ploughman’s. Maybe St Austell Brewery could do a Tribute pasty with Etheringtons as a USP ?

Warm welcome as always by lovely Issy! The restaurant/bar was spotless, furniture in great condition, hot meals looked delicious! We didn’t dine in Steam Bar this time, but we’ll definitely be returning. There is always a smile from the bar staff, and Issy in particular...engages with you as soon as you enter the restaurant/main bar area. We had a lovely evening with friends.More
