The Old Ship Inn


Much more than a hotel in the heart of Hackney, The Old Ship effortlessly delivers old school pub charm with East End cool. The burgers are infamous, the chicken is notorious, and the selection of craft beer, real ale and cocktails will satisfy the most discerning of drinkers.

Get stuck into banging rotisserie and wings, tasty salads and delicious lunchtime wraps. Catch regular BT Sport fixtures live on the big screens, and the best Sunday roasts in Hackney. Mondays are all about 2 burgers for a tenner, and Tuesdays mean whole rotisserie chickens for the price of half.

Not forgetting the 10-bedroom boutique inn above the pub, a perfect base for exploring vibrant East London and beyond.
