Built in 1781, the Ship is without doubt most famous for its location on the finishing line of the Oxford Cambridge Boat Race. Located on the river at the end of Ship Lane in Mortlake, Chiswick Bridge - the finish line for the famous race - lies to the left and Mortlake to the right. Sitting out with a pint on the pub's terrace by the river path is a lovely way to spend a sunny Sunday enjoying the beautiful river views. As a Taylor Walker pub, it has all the hallmarks of a traditional English pub, an open fire, timber floor and beer garden but it's the secluded location with its views along the river which makes the Ship one of the most picturesque pubs in this part of Mortlake.
