The Ship Tavern, a Proper London Pub Experience

22 04 2016

While I was visiting London at the end of March, I met up with a couple of friends from university who are a married couple having been college sweethearts.  Together with their high school daughter who was home for a spring break from her boarding school we went to the dining room of a very proper and classic pub in Holborn called The Ship Tavern.

The establishment dates back to 1549.  We went to the upstairs “Oak Room” for our dinner.

Had one of their ales.

Had one of their "pies" filled with beef cooked in ale. With chips.

It was still light when we came out to head out to our next destination.

The food, the service, the atmosphere, all great.  Even in an old establishment, London feels unstuffy these days.  Loved it.
