Hidden away down a little courtyard and loomed over by the Walkie Talkie.

A pub has stood here since before the fire of london and its still holding on.

Good Beer Guide 2020 Entry.

A Nicholsons in the traditional style - plenty of wood, hint of a Gin Palace, snob screens on the bar. Narrow, with high stool furniture in the main, and wooden seating elsewhere. Upstairs restaurant not investigated but the wall signs suggested they were proud of their pies.

Several cask handpulls and the London Pride was in exceptional condition.

Nicholson's pub that is one of many tucked away in the narrow streets and alleyways in this part of the city. As it was throwing out time from the various offices, the pub was in full swing with City gents (very few women). As it was my second Nicholson's pub of the day, the ale range was fairly familiar - St Austell Nicholson's Pale Ale & January Blues, Sharp's Doom Bar, Fuller's London Pride & Off Piste IPA, Dorset Brewing Company Frosted Jack, Butcombe Plough On, Ossett Yorkshire Blonde & Electric Bear Werrd. The interior has plenty of dark wood and feels quite cosy. There is an upstairs dining area. Unfortunately, the beer was the worst quality of the day. One of the many city pubs that closes all weekend.

Attractive looking Nicholson's pub tucked away off the main drag but within spitting distance of Bank and Cannon Street stations.

As with most Nicholson’s pubs the ale choice and selection was very good, across the 10 hand pumps were 7 ales, the pint of Conwy Breweries California was decent.

The Ship is a strange shape, being long and thin with overall wooden flooring that opens into a larger room on 1 side. This room had the television on. The pub was pretty busy with most of the punters being local brokers and office workers, however the heating was being pumped out of the ceiling heaters and made the place far too hot and uncomfortable.

I had never been here before and didn’t even though this place was here, lucky for me my mate did.

Will I return, I don’t know but they had good ales on and it was quite busy at 9.30pm on a Wednesday night…just a bit too warm for me.

One of the dubious benefits of starting the drinking day early is observing the interplay between pub staff & suppliers, maintenance people, council inspectors & such. Such was the case this year at the Ship, which I have visited & admired several times over the years. A managerial lady was bellowing over the phone about some life or death issue, simultaneously berating a tradesman fixing a door, & seeking advice or opinions from junior staff. Excellent multitasking skills, but a pity they weren't put to use dealing with customers. I did get a pint of Pedigree (3.40) from a sullen minion & it was fine, but my overall impression was an unhappy workplace.

Visited for the first time yesterday as there are suprisingly few good pubs in the immediate vicinity. Nice interior, decent range of ales, and responsive bar staff. Very busy with the office crowd, but had a pretty good atmosphere. Recommended.
