One of my good friends is pretty much a fixture and fitting in this pub and consequently I've been there a few times, so I feel qualified to comment. The Ship is a traditional boozer located about ten or so minutes from London Bridge Station....More

Good food and nice pub. Little bit pricey and bit messy when crowded (for example on sunday during sport times), might happen they miss an order and tv very loud. I'd go for a meal or a beer but just if near.

For a warm welcome and a cold beer, The Ship is the ideal destination. Seasonal cask ales, regular live sport and a menu of British classics make us Southwark’s finest. So come rain or shine - when our secluded garden lets you dine alfresco - you’re sure to like the cut of our jib.
