The Steamship, Blackwall

Just moved to the Blackwall area, and it turns out The Steamship is the closest pub to me. So, I gave it a try. As others have noted, it is a bit of a gem. Amidst all the new concrete and glass, it is refreshing to find something that approximates to a traditional street corner pub. I think the present landlady is trying to up-grade the place. The beer garden, albeit mostly for smokers I guess, is adorned with a nice array of flowers and, believe it or not, soft fruit (not sure if this is a reward for non-smoking customers?). The pub is spacious, and it seems there is pub food for sale, although I didn't try it this visit. Having just moved down from Yorkshire, I was pleasantly surprised to find Timothy Taylor's Landlord as one of the two cask ales on sale (£3.55 a pint). Friendly and welcoming staff. Well worth a visit. I was there at 17.00 on Wednesday, and it was pretty empty by the time I left, but was beginning to fill up. There is a pool table, a dart board and a couple of TVs. Certainly worth a return visit or two, methinks.
