Out on bikes with son and stopped off at Steam Boat. The couple who run bar were super friendly & accommodating, ensuring our bikes were brought in via back door. Atmosphere always good in this pub regardless of day or time.

A great historic pub near to the river and Shields Ferry. An interesting building inside and out (which almost inevitably has featured in an episode of Vera), and a surprisingly wide beer range, all of great quality. Friendly service and a good mix of locals and visitors who were all made welcome.
