A pub of two halves in Charing Cross

Feel at home at this friendly London pub restaurant - uniquely split on either side of Craven Passage

The Ship & Shovell is a traditional english pub, simply oozing with character and charm, the pub serves as the perfect traditional local for business guests and residents alike, as well as tourists frequenting the Charing Cross area.

Did you know? The two parts of the pub are only linked by a tunnel underground which also houses the kitchen and cellar.

Father's Day

Day of the Dads

Treat them to an extra special Father's Day. Whether it’s the stepdad who taught us to ride a bike, or the grandad who always has a story to share, Father’s Day is a time to show our appreciation for all father figures.

Join us for a laid back lunch or a roast with all the trimmings, we’ll help you make them feel that extra bit special.


Fruity, refreshing and deliciously summery – why not try Outland Peach Lager on your next visit?

Walk Ins Welcome

Our pub is one of a kind - as it's on two sides of the street! Stand in the middle of the two sides and soak it all in.
