If you have been to England, you will recognize how authentic The Olde Ship really is. It is small and cozy. the pub and restaurant close to one another, just like in a real Pub. Food and service are very good. The bartenders really make you feel welcome and the place is, well, cheery! We love The Olde Ship and... More

Have been going to the Olde Ship since the 90's. Always a great experience !!! I still go when I am in Calif., since I currently live in AZ. Can't beat the Fish and Chips lunch special, coupled with a great pint or two of London Pride. If you can't get in a great mood at the Ship, you don't... More

This is my favorite spot for the Sovereign Lamb Shank dinner with fresh mint sauce and sides of mashed potatoes and a salad. Second favorite is the fish and chips what they are known for. Calamari appetizers are a great starter and the Rhubarb Crumble served warm is an amazing finish.

I find "The Olde Ship" to be one of those places that it wouldn't take many visits to become a regular where everyone knows you & seems a cool place to hang out. I get a kick out of the fun environment with lots of British props for decor. Good menu selection & fresh, hot food in very full size... More

I'm not from England but the food was so delicious, I'd love to visit. I had a cucumber and cream cheese sandwich and chicken and veggie soup to die for. My husband had the bangers and mash. He says the bangers are outstanding. Quaint restaurant. Wait staff superb. Will come again the next time we're in southern California.

On the last night of my father and mother's visit from out of state I wanted to take them someplace special. I knew it would be quiet on a Monday night and the mood of the place is always friendly and cozy. Knowing that my father loves all kinds of beer, especially English beer, I thought the old ship to...

This is my favorite lunch spot for prime rib sandwiches. They are a lot to eat along with the great fries. My second choice is fish and chips.

This is a very small place with just the right atmosphere. The food is really good , my favorite is the Fish and Chips. All other menu items are really tasty; you might find this restaurant quite busy at lunchtime as it is located among many businesses on Harbor Blvd. in Fullerton. Give it a try!

One of the best clam chowders I've ever had. Plump tender clams and great flavor and texture to the base. My companion ordered the rack of lamb special and was kind enough to share with me. It was everything you'd expect it to be. Neighboring tables ordered the prime rib and Yorkshire Pudding and that also looked top notch. I... More
