The Ship

Only two types of people know this pub exists - the locals and the people who love the annual boat race (well actually three if you include us pub geeks).
It's hidden round the back of the Budweiser brewery, from the outside it doesn't look much... but it is humongous. I've been reliably informed The Ship hasn't always been this size, only extended when the new landlord decided to cater towards the food side of things.
With so many places to sit, we headed off towards the back, having to squeeze past a young 'girl' in a puffer jacket. She was holding her pint up at the sports screen and shouting "you're havin' a larf!". It's always a worry when you go into a place and the females have more testosterone than the blokes.
The resident dog was a scruffy little thing, he seemed to make a habit of running around the restaurant side (where we were sitting) and urinating against the legs of the chairs. Gave the place a wonderful aroma like a tramps six year old duffel coat.
The staff were good though and I'd be interested to see what it's like on a summers afternoon, outside obviously.
