Never been here before but will certainly be back! Sunday lunch was fantastic, as was the mean Bloody Mary that blew the cobwebs away to start with!

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.

    Very good food served in comfortable and pleasant surroundings. And a good wine list. Best of all was excellent, friendly and attentive service.

    We had a lovely dining experience at The Ship. Sunday roast at its best. Thank you to Claudia who served us- very friendly, efficient and professional service. Will return.

    Best Sunday Roast I've ever had in London. I would recommend all the community to go and check for themselves.

  • ((((( 4 September 2018 by Nickolas from London

    Overall it was an amazing dinner. Cozy environment with rich food and welcoming service.

    My table, the food and the service were, as always, excellent. Difficulty is a very busy large central table who made a huge amount of noise until it wass somewhat moderated when they started eating..

  • ((((( 11 August 2018 by Gill from South Molton

    We loved the Sunday roast - 2 of us had beef, and 1 had gammon. The food was really excellent, and we were most impressed with the historical ambience of the pub. We also liked the seating arrangements, so that we were seated in a private dining booth. The dining room was also spacious, which we have not found in other London pubs.

    As always The Ship delivered excellent food and service.

    Traditional English Sunday dinner. Friendly staff and environment. Reasonable prices for London without the service charges of 13-15%
