About The Old Ship

In the heart of Hackney, The Old Ship is a welcoming blend of old world inn and contemporary design. Designed with comfort in mind, the bar area is filled with deep leather sofas and low slung tables where diners can enjoy a glass of wine or a pint of ale before their meal. The menu offers modern British fare and uses seasonal ingredients to create dishes like Sunday roasts, ham hock terrine, and Yorkshire rhubarb crumble.
