Award winning Sunday lunches served all day
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.

An amazing Sunday lunch here - completely overwhelmed with the portion size and flavour of the pork belly here it was so good. Loved the features and overall atmosphere, so lucky to have stumbled across this while staying in Holburn. Will definitely return in the future!

The return of The Ship is really good news. They have managed the Covid restrictions very sensitively so the environment is still comfortable and enjoyable. The Sunday Roasts are excellent and portions were generous, as usual. The drinks menu is good and includes the super Holborn Gin. On top of this, the welcome was very warm and genuine and the service was great!
