Old Ship Review

Possibly one of the best-positioned pubs in West London, the Old Ship is perfect for watching the sun setting over the Thames and off course the infamous ‘Oxford & Cambridge boat race’.

The pub has an upstairs balcony and ground floor terrace where you can enjoy some of the best panoramic views of the Thames in London. With a newly refurnished interior, decorated with all manner of maritime and rowing memorabilia, the pub has kept with its tradition of changing with the times – the Old Ship was recorded in a census back in 1722. Personally speaking though, the Old Ship seems to be lacking some crucial element, the pub has lost part of its soul. It’s almost become a bit of a theme pub with it’s brightly lit interior, pristine nautical memorabilia behind glass cases and ‘fast bar food’ available for the masses that descend upon the Thames as soon as the sun shines. Despite my reservations the Old Ship remains extremely popular mainly due to its friendly staff, Sunday roast (food is served all day), plasma screens showing the sporting events and perfect location for those warm lazy summer evenings.

The Old Ship is definitely one to include on a pub crawl along the Thames but if you’re looking for a more wholesome pub try the Dove a little up the river towards Hammersmith Bridge.

The following customer reviews are not endorsed by Fluid London and are simply those of users who wish to publish their independent experiences of Old Ship.

“I was staying in Hammersmith last w/end and we did a pub stroll along the Thames. We visited 5 pubs and all were very pleasant with good efficient and friendly except this one. Loud with only one barman who spent a good five minutes chatting with another member of staff the other side of the counter while customers waited. Finally he seemed to notice the queue of waiting customers 'Okay whose next ?' . We left as he began to nonchalantly fill one glass at a time and continued his conversation - looked okay from the outside but poor and rude service. I work in the bar trade and this is one sure way of getting rid of paying customers. ”

“Went here on a Tuesday night, lovely spot for beer or a jug of pimms. But the food was awful, considering the prices they charge you would expect it to of a decent quality. It's a real shame because this is the sort of pub that could be great if they only sorted out the food.”

“The Old Ship is a fantastic venue in the summer - can become a little overcrowded at times though. Food is good. Relaxed atmosphere and a great place to meet a bunch of friends.”

“As a one-time neighbour the Old Ship was a great local pub and afforded some of the best Thames-side summertime outdoor drinking in West London.”

“I took friends there for Sunday lunch and found it was not as good as it used to be - pity really, as the setting is one of the best in London.”
