The Ship, Soho
The Ship deserves the four pint rating and I think it should have five. It serves fantastically well kept ales by friendly and efficient barstaff. No one ever waits more than a couple of minutes to be served. It is a rock pub and if you do not like rock, do not go there. It is probably one of the last few real pubs left.
I went there on Monday evening after work, and the place stank of stale booze, with heavy rock music blasting from the speakers.
They also had these bizarre hand made signs up around the place telling customers just what the staff and owners think about the local council.
I won’t be back in a hurry.
