Overlooking the banks of the River Thames, sailing club and restaurant Little Ship Club in Monument partners hearty British cuisine with fine dining. Occasionally frequented by live bands and local musicians, Little Ship Club boasts a sprawling oak bar and serves sumptuous afternoon tea.

Making use of locally sourced produce, the Little Ship Club menu also favours regional ingredients, featuring Wye Valley asparagus served with poached duck egg and nutty truffle hollandaise. Main courses include freshly-caught seared tuna in a tangy soy sauce served with oriental vegetables, along with rosy-pink Gresham duck confit paired with rich fondant potatoes and creamy parsnip purée.

Nautical-inspired carpets sweep the length of the Little Ship Club restaurant, which unfolds through an enormous, rectangular archway. Contemporary spotlights scatter across the low ceiling, illuminating the historical artwork that lines the stark, white walls.

Little Ship Club in London is just a 3-minute walk from Mansion House Tube Station. St. Paul’s Cathedral is a 9-minute walk away.

    Most enjoyable. Upper class atmosphere, spacious, leisurely and good food.. Old fashioned hospitality.
    NOTE. Admission restricted to members.

    We have an annual lunch time family get-together at the Little Ship Club a few weeks before Christmas. Everyone loves the venue - the location, the food, the service, the atmosphere - and I get pestered each November to make sure I haven't forgotten to book!

    Eating at the Little Ship Club is a wonderful experience. To start with there's That View! I booked a window table and sitting alongside the river, especially on a sunny day, is just amazing. On this occasion I was meeting a friend I shared a flat with many years ago, and she was stunned when she found that we were seated right in front of the Thames path, with the river flowing past.

    As one might imagine the whole club is full of nautical features and together with its location beside the river makes for a wonderful atmosphere.

    The food was superb. We both had the same starter of smoked and fresh salmon, radish and quail eggs, which was delicious, and beautifully presented. I had the chicken ballottine to follow and my friend had the sea bass with an oriental sauce and noodles. Both dishes were excellent. We reluctantly resisted the temptation of the delicious sounding deserts, but maybe another time I will indulge, and forego the hors d'oeuvre instead. What a difficult decision!

    The service was excellent, and the whole experience a great pleasure.
