A traditional ale house and dining room hidden in the heart of Holborn, The Ship Tavern in London prides itself on cooking British culinary favourites. One of Holborn’s best pubs and dating back to 1549, The Ship boasts a fruitful history.
Classic pub fare characterises The Ship Tavern menu, from comforting pies to hearty steaks. Start with soft shell crab fritters or braised ox cheek, followed by venison steak au poivre, or halibut with razor clams. End with a baileys crème brûlée, or a selection of British cheeses.
Guests can choose between the mahogany-walled dining room adorned with antique paintings and roaring fires, and the cosy pub downstairs. Graze on light bites and snacks from the Ship bar menu while you enjoy one of the gins: a selection so vast, there is a menu specially devoted to it.
The daily specials and real ales are highlights at The Ship Taven Holborn, alongside the Sunday roast and frequent live jazz sessions. Holborn Tube Station is a 2-minute walk away.

Great restaurant, nice people, we really enjoyed our dinner. Starters were tasty and gorgeous looking. The meats ( beef and pork) were perfectly cooked. We had so much to eat we couldn't take a dessert!

Lovely service and atmosphere as usual. Trio of lamb was sublime. 1549 ale as reliable as ever and a delicious brownie to finish. Faultless.

Lovely decor and excellent service, very attentive staff. The food was delicious - The brie starter and almond sponge desert particularly stood out for me, also very good value for money and it was very nice that the staff acknowledged my boyfriends birthday with complimentary champagne and a candle in his desert.

Great place, wonderful staff
Cozy Dining room upstairs with a roaring fireplace.
Very affordable with an actual trained chef.
Near British museum but far enough away as to not attract its tourist crowds.
