2016 gigs, ales, food & films!

Firstly, Happy New Year from all of us at The Steamboat! We hope you had a great Christmas and New Year’s break. We brought in the New Year in style, with a packed house and the superb Red Flag 77, supported by Casual Nausea. If that gig was an indication of the coming year we’re in for a great 2016 of live music at The Steamboat.

The next gig is here already – this Friday night we have TV Smith back at The Boat! With support from London based punk ukulele band, The Pukes, and local guys Rampton Disco – it’s sure to be a great night.

Here’s a little tempter of a few of the bands confirmed to play in the coming months… keep a look out for Horse Party, 999, The Lurkers, Superglu, Red Flag 77, Dingus Khan, The Thinking Men and The Brackish Edge. Some brilliant acts coming up to see us through those cold, miserable months and into the summer!

We’ll have the usual bi-monthly jazz sessions on the second and last Sunday of each month from 2pm and Wax on the Waterfront makes a return on Sunday 7th February, after a short break over Christmas – ALWAYS a great way to spend your Sundays. We have also started a monthly film night – this month (21st) we will be showing the Tarantino classic True Romance. Please let us know suggestions of films you’d like to see at the Steamboat. Hot dogs, homemade popcorn and drinks offers will be available on the night!

In 2015 ale, cider and craft keg beers proved so popular we needed more pumps – so we now have another 2 hand pumps up and running and will be increasing our range of real ales and ciders. This means we need to keep sourcing new breweries and cider makers to keep the choice fresh and interesting. If there are any beers or ciders that you love and would want to see on our pumps feel free to call in, email us or drop us a message on Facebook or Twitter with your suggestions and we’ll do our best to get them in.

The new dishes on our food menu are going down a treat, if you haven’t already, why pop in and give them a try?! Homemade curries, spicy pulled pork and mozzarella panini, breaded lemon chicken escalope with garlic butter. Or just a warming bowl of homemade soup with a freshly baked roll. Yummy!

Once again, Happy New Year from The Steamboat crew and we look forward to seeing you very soon!
