Best Neighbourhood Pub: Ship & Anchor Pub


The Ship, as it’s known by the regulars, is one of the oldest pubs in Calgary and its many patrons still haunt the bar stools. The rugged atmosphere makes it feel like home away from home. The food is elevated from pub grub to home cooked comfort food and dishes you would never expect from a pub. The menu boasts of tasty meals like the cheesiest grilled cheese, crunchy deep fried pickles and lemongrass chicken that sparks a whole new flavour in your mouth.

Holding true to British pub tradition, Shippers range from children (during the day) to punk styled guys and gals, business men and women and fashionistas. You will be loved here no matter who you are. As their website states “If a pub could drunkenly hug you this one would”. Come for a hug on one of the most interesting patios in the city.

Location: 534-17th Ave. S.W. Calgary, AB.
