Blue Scrumpy left this review about The Ship

The Ship does not open until a little later than other local pubs. So the young barmaid appeared surprised to see us when we arrived on Tuesday afternoon. Although one other customer was already present and seated.

It is a long and narrow pub owned by Marston's that was playing some kind of rock music, which didn't really fit with the time of day when custom was so quiet. But the pub clearly has a rock/metal theme.

The barmaid was fairly sulky and looked generally uninterested. The solitary real ale was also uninteresting - Wychwood Hobgoblin IPA. I'd seen the original ruby Hobgoblin and the Blonde version before, but never the IPA. So maybe I'm doing it a disservice. In addition, a bonus for me was the presence of a couple of Thatcher's real ciders - Stan's Big Apple & Cheddar Valley.

A bonus point for the ciders, but not really my kind of pub.

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.
