The Ship & Shovell

The Ship & Shovell

Charing Cross’s famous ‘pub in two halves’

London’s worst kept secret is the wonderful Ship & Shovell, or the ‘pub in two halves’, as its otherwise known. This classic London ale house exudes character and charm, sitting either side of Craven Passage and tucked away behind Charing Cross station. Dating back to the 1730's, the 'Ship' half was connected to the 'Shovell' half by a tunnel underneath Craven Passage in 1998. The Ship & Shovell serves award-winning draught Badger Beers from Dorset and a wholesome menu of nourishing pub classics, making it the perfect local for nearby business folk and residents, as well as tourists lucky enough to stumble upon it.
