Steak and Kidney Pie to Die for!

I travel to L.A. about once a month and no trip is complete without a visit to "The Ship" This is the closest thing to an actual 'old English' pub that you will find in America. When I visit UK the English Pub lunches are my mainstay. If you haven't enjoyed a true Stake and Kidney pie smothered... read more

If you like curry...get it at The Olde Ship along with a perfectly poured Guinness! Best with half fries/half rice (new concept for me to have curry with fries - but is delicious.) Have been several times - and yet to try any other dish. Tiny parking lot in the back but we've found street parking and never waited more... More

I've been here several times as its my sons local pub. It's got such a fantastic atmosphere here. The ladies toilet has British memorabilia all over the walls. I am always made to feel so welcome here. The staff are so friendly and always eager to please. The food is gorgeous especially for my son and his English friends who... More

We've been to the Ship (that's what locals call it) numerous times over the years, and we've always had a great experience. The atmosphere is unbeatable! Whether you're looking for a fun bar experience, a romantic dinner, or a lively family gathering, all are possible at the Ship. Their food is top-notch, and if you like burgers, you're going to...

2 pints of beer cost $20 which is ridiculous for even Orange County...a basket of bread (about 6 pieces of cold bread) was $4...yeah, there's some nice decoration that's British themed...and the price is definitely British...plenty of other less expensive spots in Fullerton I'm sure...

We have been going to The Olde Ship for many years now. There are dishes we've learned to avoid (don't get their pot roast), but the ones we like are great. Our one daughter-in-law is British, and she loves to go there and also brings her family when they come to visit. They all agree that right down to the... More

The Olde Ship serves real English Pub style foods. Pasty's, meatloaf, fish and chips are all good here. I have been at lunch and dinners, and have never left hungry or had a bad meal. Most meals are served with peas and carrots (I don't like them anywhere, but they gladly substitute other items. My wife really enjoys the beers... More
