Our Long and Proud History
Here in the UK, there are a few things that we’re the forerunners of: Bacon Sandwiches, Premier League Football and Quality Beers & Ale.
You can find all three of these things, and much more, at The Ship in a Bottle.
We understand the importance of a ‘home away from home’. As much as it can be fun to have your mates around your gaff for the match, the last thing you want to be doing, when you’re 4 drinks deep, is thinking about cleaning up.
So, when we went about setting up The Ship, we wanted to design a place that had the comfort of a living room, with the relaxed nature of a down-town bar. A place where you can meet your friends, buy a round of expertly poured pints, watch the game with a couple of fat sandwiches and not worry about making a mess (or waking up the kids).
There’s been a lot of recent developments here at The Ship...
This month we continued to expand our range of food, we hired a new mixologist and made some crucial purchases for our kitchen so that we can continue to serve you with the freshest bar snacks and nibbles.
Although we’ve only been open for a couple of months now, we’re constantly receiving feedback from our wonderful friends, so that we can continue to improve upon our rotating menu of snacks and drinks.
If you pop in within the next fortnight you might well see an unfamiliar face behind the bar creating some rather unusual looking drinks. That man is our new mixologist, Joshua. He’s been hired to completely redesign our Cocktail offerings here at The Ship. We asked Josh to think outside the box and he’s done just that, creating 8 new drinks that are creative spins on familiar names.
Check out the board the next time you’re in, or just ask our new member of staff for a run down of them!
A new establishment always runs into a few teething problems when they first open.
In these first few months, you’re trying to keep your head above water, whilst simultaneously learning as much about your business as possible. All so that you’ve got a better chance of surviving and prospering.
We knew we were going to have problems with our kitchen when we signed the lease.
