Square Meal Review of The Ship ?

An old waterman’s inn off the main drag over Wandsworth Bridge, The Ship has been a south London favourite for years and – following a recent refit – still has everything going for it. The interior boasts several cleverly extended spaces, plus a light conservatory and a new outdoor bar, terrace and BBQ area with river views; there are also three new custom-built waterside cabins for private bashes. The menu now mixes gastropub favourites with more restaurant-style dishes ranging from roasted sweetbreads with mushroom croquette, pea shoots and truffle oil to rib-eye with hand-cut chips, monkfish, clam and tomato tart or venison loin with celeriac fondant and watercress purée. After that, keep is classic with treacle tart and clotted-cream ice cream. Sunday lunch is a big call, Young’s beers and guest brews are kept in good order, and the wine list is worth serious consideration too.

  1. With a slightly niggling hangover, I made my way over the bridge to The Ship for what seemed as a well deserved lunch on the long weekend. The popular pub over looking the river Thames, is known to be buzzing with crowds of people drinking on the street was unfortunately let down by the dismal weather that we all know too well. Never the less the restaurant and bar area inside managed to fill up in no time and the vibe of the place was relaxed and pleasant. I was impressed to see that the menu had been freshly printed for that day and pretty much everything on there seemed to grab my attention...

    Samphire and Salsify :: The Ship, Wandsworth

    The Ship is a rather popular Young’s pub situated right by the river in Wandsworth. As my parents were down in London for the day, I thought it might be nice to pop along for a Sunday roast – and I wasn’t wrong thank God! It’s not in the most obvious of locations and it’s certainly not the sort of place you’d stumble across. However we arrived to find a heaving pub, with a really lively and buzzy atmosphere. They don’t take reservations for Sunday lunch after 1pm but after a short wait in the bar area, we were seated by the open plan kitchen...

    little swallow : china doll :: The Ship, Wandsworth

    We waited patiently on Sunday for the sun to show itself. Even at 2:45pm, with not a sign of a break in the clouds or a rise in temperature, I clung desperately to my iPhone weather app which foretold of fabled sun and a balmy 18C. It was all a lie. We headed to The Ship anyway, despite the chance of us soaking up the sun in the beer garden rapidly disappearing. In a fit of ridiculousness (likely spurred by the lack of sunshine, and the fact that we were eating lunch at 3pm) we ordered starters. Let me assure, you do not need a starter when you're having Sunday lunch at The Ship...

  4. The pub has been on this site since 1786 but the new decor and interior design strikes the perfect balance between a modern airy feel and cosy rustic comfort. We managed to get a little teaser of the new menu and the bite sized offering of their famed burgers and award-winning scotch eggs, this place even has an annual scotch egg challenge!...
