The Ship

Book a table

A peaceful and relaxing riverside beacon that's overlooked the Thames since 1786.

This great Young's local, founded as a waterman's inn around 1786, shines like a riverside beacon. The peaceful and relaxing front bar is ideal for reading or quiet conversation, whereas the much larger conservatory by the Thames attracts a lively mixed crowd, which means seats are always at a premium; an excellent garden overlooks Wandsworth Bridge. The pleasant dining room serves an ambitious seasonal menu that comes - like the list of entertainment (including an informal Irish session on Tuesdays) - printed on a surreal image of a sea captain with a ship for his head and fish for his hands.

Great food and a decent place but the whole experience is let down by a rude, obnoxious, arrogant GM who has no respect for his customers.

Also they don't ever answer their phones (I phoned 35 times in a 10 hour period) so good luck trying to get a reservation.

Don't bother - you can find much nicer beer gardens and pubs for half the price and for a much nicer experience.
