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.

Went to the ship for dinner on Saturday and was really impressed by how lovely the atmosphere and food was. Highly recommend the beef brisket and the warm cider from the autumn cocktail menu! Staff were great and attentive all covid regs being followed and felt very at ease and comfortable. Will definitely be back. Thank you for a lovely evening

Always fab at the Ship. Such a cosy Sunday setting and a great London boozer overall in terms of aesthetic, food and overall feel.

Reserved a table for 6 for a Friday evening and very impressed by COVID-Secure preparations in place for the Ship Tavern. Had problems with the first draft beers, which was quickly remedied by the attentive staff. Experience very good throughout our stay and recommend to anyone looking for a safe evening out in central London.

I have visited The Ship Tavern many times and it never disappoints. The pub is located just a couple of minutes' walk from Holborn station; the staff are always friendly and helpful; they have an excellent selection of beer (which is kept very well), wine and gin; the food is delicious, and the restaurant upstairs (not open at the moment) is beautiful. The pub doesn't have an accessible toilet though and the gents toilet is downstairs.
