Tris C left this review about The Ship

Dating in some form from 1790, this is situated in a none-too-enticing area, though nicer than the E & C, a former Charrington’s house, as evinced by the sign bracket, though its trademark green banded glazing with red lettering is absent. Or never present.
It’s well covered below, so I doubt it has changed though the interior – which looks very 1930s – is well covered on the website, which even shows the TVs on, despite the pub being cleared for the photographer; at least there was one person watching the football on my visit, from two TVs blasting out the commentary, the games machine, thankfully something of a rarity in Fuller’s pubs, flashing away too. Customers were probably a mix of traditional locals, less traditional incomers and perhaps some office workers.
The Fuller’s range was on offer, so it was a half of Dark Star APA at a very reasonable £4.80 a pint, the friendly and professional barman giving me a top-up, unprompted; fine pint it was too.
This is actually a really great pub, but the games machine and especially the highly intrusive TVs, really knocked the stuffing out of my experience. However, it’s still far better than the Duke of York down the road.

A surprisingly traditional Fullers pub which has swerved the excesses of their refurb department, probably helped by its positioning as a halfway house between Borough and the E&C. Entrances at both ends of a long narrow room which has 3/4 length wood panelling, Wedgwood green uppers, varnished wood floor and nautical paraphernalia – an inter-war feel, as noted elsewhere. The main entrance exterior has lovely green tiling, square leaded windows and some nice hanging baskets. I spotted a dart board, again a bit rare round these parts and attests to it being a local, rather than an office workers, haunt. Five pumps at the bar with Pride, ESB, Seafarers, Red Fox (fair) and Dark Star Revelation (excellent shape). There was a nice relaxed atmosphere and it was an enjoyable stop – one to know about if you’re in the area.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Ship

Good Fullers pub, with more of a local feel than some of the after-work establishments closer to London Bridge station. Generally rectangular bar, albeit having a frontage angled to the street. Slightly austere interior with dark furniture, 3/4-height wood-panelling and upper paintwork. Pride, Seafarers, ESB and Quintessentially Pale Ale (£3.90) available from the five handpumps on this visit. Old-fashioned, but in an upmarket kind of way.
