These are difficult times. Pubs and music venues are under severe and grim threat and many will not survive the COVID-19 lockdown.

To support The Steamboat you can help us in a number of ways:


We are a part of the #SaveOurVenues campaign. You can donate through Crowdfunder by clicking the button below:

Buy beer & cider!

During lockdown we are offering a collection service. We have a great range of local ales and ciders available in kegs and other containers. Buying drinks from us also helps support local breweries.

Buy music!

Some local artists have donated their music in order to support us. 100% of the proceeds of these releases go towards helping keeping The Steamboat in business. Click the ‘donate’ button and you’ll be taken to PayPal. Once you have kindly made your donation you will be redirected to a download page.

If you have any problems with the donation or downloading process contact Andrew Laws here…

Please subscribe to our mailing list and we’ll let you know when other downloads become available…
