The best place around to get authentic Fish and Chips and the only bar I know to get a shot of Pusser's rum!

Not too many English restaurants around, food is decent, prices are on the high side though. Only thing I can recommend you stay away from is the beef Wellington, way too expensive for what you get. Corned beef is great though and the desserts too. Lamb liked really good but I have yet to try it, lots ordering it though.

An authentic pub found in Fullerton! Delicious grub ~ curry chicken (oh please make it hot!) ~ fish and chips ~ add hot sticky pudding and you have found nirvana!

The Ship can provide a good selection of British meals, from bangers and mash to fish and chips. The service is great

Staff are excellent - just like back in England. Food is excellent - not Americanized versions of English dishes but the real recipes. Lots of English, Irish and Scottish choices and a great selection of traditional beers. If you've been to England and enjoyed the pub life, you'll love The Olde Ship in Fullerton. There's another in Santa Ana -... More

I've been coming to this restaurant pub for 20 years or more and sad to see it in decline. The ambience is still fine save the fake English accents of some of the servers. I remember when they used to be real! Much of the clientele was also from across the seas. But the biggest issue is the food. My... 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
