Young's Ship at Wandsworth reopens after revamp – PHOTOS

Iconic London pub the Ship in Wandsworth has reopened following a major renovation.

Pub company Young's has refurbished and extended the dining room, restored the 1950s horseshoe-shaped bar and updated the vintage furniture.

The riverside venue, which dates back to 1786, has also got a new outside bar, terrace and barbecue area, with increased seating capacity and three Thames-side cabins for private parties and events.

Head chef Shaun Harrington has reworked the dining room menu with the aim of offering dishes of restaurant quality. Examples include a starter of roasted sweetbreads, mushroom croquette, pea shoots and truffle oil; and a main course of venison loin, crepinette of shank, celeriac fondant and watercress purée.

Crafts ales and beers available on tap will include London varieties such as Wandle from Sambook's Brewery in Battersea, a Meantime ale from the Greenwich brewery and Camden Hells Lager from the Camden Town Brewery, as well as more international brews such as Yakima Red pale ale, made by Meantime from hops from Washington State.

Commenting on the revamp general manager Oisín Rogers said he is delighted. "It retains its heart and soul, but the Ship is now fitter and better looking," he added.
