What is the best thing about the Olde Ship.........Amy and oh yes good food

I have been to the Olde Ship in Fullerton some time ago but this is the first visit to the Santa Ana location which is much larger. As you might imagine this is an English Pub and both in the décor and those sitting at the bar you might think you were on the East side of London. Very eclectic... read more

The Olde Ship is a Santa Ana jewel. Great Roast Beef, legendary fish and chips, memorable corned beef and cabbage and a terrific salad selection. Full bar with specialty beers. Friendly bartenders and wait staff. Go one time and you'll be back again and again

Everything a British pub should be. Excellent and huge beer selection, the pasties are great. Often sports on the tellies, football (both kinds), etc. The staff are super as well. When there is live music, it is as loud as it should be. I have been many times for drinks or food (which is usually very good yet variable, choose... More

I love fish and chips, so the Olde Ship sounded like a good choice. After all, my wife and daughters are anglophiles who watch BBC programmes as if they were going out of style. The quaint decor of the pub/ restaurant got us off to a good start. From there it was all down hill. The fish batter was chewy... More

The Olde Ship has great food and especially like the Fish & Chips! Many Brews to choose from too. Been there on Fridays where they have live music. Love the ambiance.

Great food and the portions are enough for two people. My husband and I enjoy having dinner and listening to the music on Friday nights. At times it gets very busy waiting for our food but this gives a chance to talk and enjoy our drink, besides the food is worth the wait and the staff is always so friendly

British pub food is not known for it's stellar tastes, but each time we go to the Olde Ship, I always feel like my belly is full and my disposition improved. You can get British Beers along with others both domestic and imported - served with a smile. And the food is nothing super special, but served with the traditional... More
