“Great pub atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

Great English pub. English beer selections are great! Food is very authentic as is the atmosphere. Love the bangers and mash! Fun restaurant experience!

“Comfort food in an English Pub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

A recent dinner at this unique restaurant/bar was tastier then expected. The cozy space was divided between a bar and dining area, but the music and conversation from the bar did not interfere with our pleasant dining experience. The food was homestyle comfort with delicious sauces and gravies. The portions were ample and well presented. The chicken pot pie with its puff pastry crust was delicious, and the roast beef was well prepared and served with a popover. The vegetables were a bit overcooked but well seasoned. Our meal was served piping hot and we indulged in dessert, the Sticky Pudding, which was a taste treat. The food and hospitality is worth another visit.

“Favorite place for a casual meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

British style food. Don't miss the bridies and pasties, salmon burger and homemade soups. Very friendly staff who will remember you.

“Not so English”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Its supposed to be an English style pub restaurant. I find it an imitation, but nothing like pubs I visited in England. The food is just OK.

“Great Sticky Pudding!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

The Olde Ship is a unique place. It is well known to locals and to Brits who want a little bit of home. The food is good, the service is fine but the Sticky Pudding with real cream is fantastic. When you visit eat light and have dessert.. you won't be sorry. The dining area is small, the parking is tricky but the over all experience is worth it.
