Met up with friends before going on for a meal, pub is really popular and pretty packed but able to find a table, service was excellent which was surprising with number of customers and only ever had to wait a few seconds. Ideal pub if...visiting Soho, Leicester square areaMore

Stumbled across this pub when walking through Soho on Saturday early evening. The music is great, there is a friendly atmosphere and bar staff are friendly and efficient. We ended up staying for the London Bowie tour which we really enjoyed. The turn out was...great and the bar staff continued to work efficiently to serve drinks quickly. Toilets were clean. Thanks!More

The Ship is a historic trip back in time when pubs where the heart and soul of the community, the entertainment for the masses and the meeting points for all business and conversations. The Ship is a great trip back in time with the ambiance...of current day London.More

Old school boozer in the heart of Soho with a good selection of food and drink. Prices are reasonable. Staff friendly.

Lively loud London pub that I went to on a busy Saturday afternoon. Beer was good, the music was loud and the toilets were oh so wet.....

Popped in here after the Soho Punk walking tour. I would have stayed longer if the WiFi had been working. Cool place with yummy lunch and good beer.

Popped in for a couple of pints with friends after theatre on Saturday afternoon. Great place, very different to some of the other pubs in the area. Good music and great selection of Ales. Stood outside and watched the world go by. Brilliant !!

Popped into The Ship for a quick pint and light lunch on Saturday. Great little boozer with a good choice of beers. Big shout out to the landlord who recounted tales of some of the old rock stars who frequented the place. Just a shame...we had the kids with us otherwise the wife and I would have happily stopped all afternoon.More

We were referred to this pub by a buddy who lived in the city. We wanted to find a place where we could hear some older UK music. This is just the place. Good food as well.
