Wedding Reception

We had our Wedding reception at the Old Ship in October. The venue was incredibly intimate and was full of character. Just what we were looking for. The team at the Old Ship provided an efficient service, we did have to chase for a few things on a number of occasions. However, we were made to feel welcome, and we understand that Weddings may not be that common at the Old Ship. I would recommend the Old Ship to anyone who is looking to have an intimate celebration.

Amazing experience

We went with a group of 12 for a relaxed pub dinner. The staff had a table set aside for us, and though we weren’t too organised, helped us to have a lovely evening. The menu was perfect – a good range of food and drink. Cosy atmosphere and attentive service with a smile. On top of all that, an amazing location.

A great venue on the banks of the Thames

This is a very nice pub/restaurant on the banks of the river.

There is some lovely seating at ground level which is in the shade. There is also a lovely veranda upstairs with a lovely view over the river.

The food was good and the cider was cold. The service was very pleasant and prompt.
