Having admired it from afar (Twitter and various blogs) for quite some time, a bloggers lunch at The Ship in Wandsworth was too good of an invite to pass up.

The menu was a showcase of The Ship’s finist dishes, with even an appearance by the famous scotch egg.

The starters came out first (obvoiously), with a highlight being the chicken liver and foie gras terrine. The rum soaked baby figs and toasted brioche for which it was  served with provided perfect support.

For their mains, the braised pork and cider pie was quite comforting for the cold winter’s day. Served with excellently cooked mustard glazed carrots.

The most sought after meal on the day would have to be their signature burger. It  was the perfect mixture of bun, meat and filling. I hear that they add extra cream and butter to the processed cheese they get in to make the cheese even tastier. The actual recipe is a secret, although what they do to it certanly works very well.

For puddings, the treacle tart was perfectly complimented with stem ginger ice cream. The pastry perfectly crisp and easy to cut through, with the treacle filling not too sweet.

Another pudding bought out for our enjoyment was the chocolate fondant, which passed the test of the perfect cake to runny middle ratio. If you’re after a small pudding to finish things off, then you may struggle to get through the larger than average serving size.

I can’t wait to go back to The Ship. It’s perfectly situated within 5 minutes walk of Wansworth Town underground, and there are various buses you can easily catch there as well. It’s situated right on the river, so I will be looking forward to taking advantage of the outdoor tables on a summer’s day.

Watch out for their sandwich challenge coming up in the later part of 2012 as well. It promises to build upon the scotch egg challenge held there previously.


A big thank you goes to Gail Doggett and Osin Rogers for organising such a wonderful gathering!
