Marston’s pub with a dark bare boarded interior. Proclaims itself croydons last rock bar and the music being played backed that up. 5 real ale taps 4 on during my visit.

A sign on the exterior proudly states to all passers-by that the Ship is ‘The last real pub in Croydon’… No it isn’t!

The interior is long and thin with an alcove with seating along the left hand wall and a bar that runs along the right. There are a couple of high tables with some stools, but the majority of space is reserved for standing. There is a lack of natural light because the front window is blacked out where a DJ booth is set up, which explains the lack of furniture on the bare board flooring. During my recent early evening visit a muted Bond film was being projected onto the rear wall and some background music was playing at a bearable volume.

The bar supports five hand pumps that were drawing Wychwood’s Gold and Hobgoblin (x2) alongside Marston’s Help for Heroes. The fifth hand pump was unused, but there was a standard draught selection available. This pub opens daily at 17:00 and closes at midnight every night except for Fridays and Saturdays when it closes at 2am.

I found the barmaid to be very friendly, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to visit here again whilst this pub is in its present guise.
