Not so long ago, there used to be dozens of little pubs like the Ship around the City, pleasant drinking holes where local workers meet a spot of for lunch, or gather after work for a quick pint or two before the weary, dreary commute home. Nowadays, there aren't very many of them left, space is at a premium in the Square Mile, so turnover has to be high just to break even, so most of them have either disappeared completely, or been replaced by much larger bar-type experiences such as Fine Line and All Bar One. Thankfully though, the Ship is still here, refurbished not that long ago and still offering the traditional pub experience; good beer (Butcombe Bitter and Sharp's Doom Bar for instance), unfussy pub grub - a range of burgers, including Thai fish are a feature, but there are also sandwiches and pies - and polite, friendly service. It's a real haven and a reminder of a less frenetic way of doing business. We need more, not fewer, pubs like the Ship and, surely, it's our duty as pub fans to patronise them to keep them in business.

A great little local in the heart of London sounds to good to true but it isn't. The Ship is something to be cherished and enjoyed, a very friendly place selling top quality ales with a smile. Four ales always on tap: Doom Bar, Butcombe Bitter, Courage Best and one guest. A superb yet simple lunch menu, quiz nights, bonus ball etc. The pub has just won an award as one of the Safest Pubs in the City of London at the Guildhall. Kira the Landlady works hard but always has time for a chat and is always doing something for charity. She greets virtually all her customers by name, it really is a local in the city. She deserves all the success she gets. Try it and you'll be back.
