|thenationofjames - I think that is a very insiteful and accurate assesment of the place. I've not set foot in the Steam Engine for a few years now but when I used to live down that neck of the woods it was the perfect place for a Sunday all dayer repeat chance. |
Good and loud music, free food, cheap pool table, cheap pints and really friendly bar staff and locals. In the 3 years I frequented this pub I have not a single story of any grief whatsoever. Sure, it's a little dated but for me I prefer these sorts of gaff to the overmodernised and overpriced refurbs that are ten a penny in London today.

|Where as the The Ship down the road caters for families in the truest sense, this pub seems to be more suited to the black sheep of the family unit - dipsomaniac uncles who want to get hammered and belt out old favourites on the karaoke, or impatient teenagers keen to embrace the seedy underbelly of life before they have any right to do so. It's hard to put your finger on why a place like this has got it so right when a place like The Ship has got it so wrong because there's not a huge amount that separates the too. But with friendlier faces, subtler lighting and a generally a whole warmer feel the Ship could do a lot worse than at least try and take a leaf out of this curious book.|
Good for: Hard to say but I wouldn't start an evenings drinking here although I might finish it?
