Jon B left this review about The Ship Tavern

this is not too bad a pub for central London. small and atmospheric. dining largely consigned to upstairs. Based on my visit it’s not, however, a place to escape American tourists or London prices - yikes on both counts!

A pleasant pub tucked away down a pedestrianised alleyway, but only a short distance from the hustle and bustle of nearby roads, it has quite a traditional appearance with leaded glass windows that bear the pub’s name, although unusually it appears to be constructed from some type of black granite.

Internally it has quite a traditional appearance with wood strip floor, cornice work on the ceiling, and much wood panelling on the walls, both full height in some places and on the lower half only in others. Elsewhere the colour scheme was deep red paintwork and there was also a large beer barrel for vertical drinking, a cockerel mounted on a pillar, and appropriately enough, lots of old black and white photographs of ships. One corner of the pub was quite cosy with a number of built-in bookshelves behind the seating and plenty of pictures on the walls. In contrast were a couple of TV screens stuck up on the wall, but fortunately these were not in use on our visit.

Beers on tap were Twickenham Sundancer, Wimbledon Copper Leaf Ale, Old Peculiar, Tribute, Deuchars IPA and their own 1549, perhaps a reference to when the pub first opened? The solitary cider meanwhile was Symonds Founders Reserve. Overall, an oasis of calm in the middle of London, and well worth checking out.

Wedge shaped pub tucked away in the alleys. Dark wooden floors and leaded windows. 5 real ales and food served.
