Blue Scrumpy left this review about The Head of Steam

I was somehow expecting this pub to be much busier on my Saturday evening visit. Whilst there were no tables on the ground floor, there were plenty spare upstairs.

The ale selection was good and they also offer 3 real ciders. Ales were Cameron's Road Crew, Bad Company Easy Now, Ridgeside Io & Rooster's Baby Faced Assassin & London Thunder. All ciders were from Lilley's - Rhubarb Cider, Apples & Pears & Somerset Scrumpy. I went for the London Thunder, a porter, which was slightly past its best.

I do however enjoy my visits to pubs in the Head of Steam chain. They always offer a good selection of beers, whether it be cask, keg, bottle or cans. This one was no exception.

Up an alley off North Road, it's a two story building looking a little Swiss. Downstairs contains an L shaped room round two sides of a courtyard. A mix of standard tables and chairs plus more bizarre and uncomfortable choices to rest at. The long counter along the back wall has five pulls, with local and regional beers and two horseshoes of kegs. Slightly engineering feel to the decor, other parts of the decor are beer ads and it’s got a pinball table. Not bad but not my first choice in Durham.

This has been well described below and is set down an alleyway off North Road past the bus station and JDW coming from the roundabout at the bottom of the station area.
It's modern inside and consists of a wide room with steps leading to an upstairs area.
There are five hand pumps which had Camerons A-Hop-Alypse Now & Cola Bottle Stout, a beer from Two By Two, Sonnet 43 The Right Brew #41 and Leeds Midnight Bell. I went for the Midnight Bell and the Right Brew which was cloudy orange wheat murk but tasted quite nice.
I quite liked this place, it is GBG 2018 listed.
