The Ship

983 user reviews 4

One of Wandsworth's best-loved watering holes, there's a reason The Ship continues to pull in the punters and it starts with their huge riverfront beer garden. With atmospheric views over the water, there's no better place to tuck into the pub's delicious menu... and sink a few pints in the process.

Exuding all the edginess of NYC's slick restaurant scene, Seabird is a gorgeous South London pick. Resting atop The Hoxton's Southwark hotel, it's seafood classics, brunch specials and great wines with unbeatable views to round it all off.
