Love the history of the Ship. Upstairs is a beautiful dining room. The service is flawless and whilst it can get full, it’s never too loud and your never left waiting. Love the Sunday roast, tons of meat, with everything piled high. Best Sunday lunch in London for me, and I live here.

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.

    Good food. Good friendly and attentive staff. Restaurant has a lovely ambiance, although difficult getting to the toilets through a very busy bar.

    Amazing staff, always friendly and willing to help you with their massive gin and rum collection! Would 100% recommend the ship to anyone who loves fine dinning or a bit of jazz (Sunday’s only)

    Welsh trio of lamb and beef wellington were excellent. The team of chefs are clearly very talented. Fantastic British/French grub.
