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... read 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

It's fun to go during the holidays; they have it decorated so brightly. Always a cheerful atmosphere. A surprise bagpipe performance was kind of fun. The food is good, and the Lady Godiva martini is like drinking a potent dessert.

A friendly British Pub in the middle of Orange County. The beer pours well and the food well about pub food standards. Staff make it a little more special.
