The Ship

Squaremeal 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.

It seems the trend for gastro pubs is to focus more on being a restuarant than a bar. The Ship sits at the other end of the scale – it is first and foremost a pub but one that happens to also have a great kitchen. That does mean that it gets very busy and it can be difficult to make it through the crowded bar to the dining room itself. However, it works and still feels inviting. Food itself is good – definitely not just pub grub, this has flair and quality. The menu is simple but offers good choice....

Decided to go to lunch today at the Ship, as I had seen good reviews and had drunk there occasionally. Well food OK, what do you expect for barbeque? Service is strange as I was asked for a mobile number so they could text me when food was ready, I didn't realise I had to go and get my food, instead of it being brought to me, no wonder they did what they did, see later… As for the outside, well it is South London, and there is a cement factory across the road, so views are not what they could been...
