When ever I miss London, I just pop over to the Olde Ship for the best home cooked meal, great pint of cider and friendly people. If you don't know someone going in, you will by the time you leave. Also always take my British visitors here and they all say that the fish and chips is better than home!

Most menu items are really British Pub food and are good, especially the fish and chips, and save room for the sticky toffee pudding but make sure you have custard, not ice cream.

We have eaten here many times before. But last night was just kind of mediocre. I had the Prime Rib. Other times it was yummy. Last night (7-22-16), it was a rib steak that was kind of tough and fatty. Other times it's been better. I noticed on the way out that the restaurant was looking for a chef. So... More

This is the second time I have visited this place in 5 years. The first time I went there for lunch I was not impressed. Figuring I would give them another try (since it's a block from home) my wife and I went there for dinner. The wait staff was nice and efficient. The pub area was what you would... More

An authentic British Pub and Diner in the heart of Fullerton. And the staff and waitstaff stick to this portrayal. The food is amazing, the beers and ciders incredible. The haddock was incredible, and the rhubarb crumble is a must-try.

The olde ship always delivers I both quality pub food and a fun intimate atmosphere. The wait staff is friendly and the bar staff takes care of the regulars and newcomers alike.

Our party of 8 wanted to go out for dinner on Mother's day Eve and without reservations we were concerned about getting a table. 2 of us arrived 30 minutes before our agreed upon time so I put our name in hoping to get a table by the time the rest of our family arrived. The staff was so kind... More

This place is kind of hidden away from all the bars and restaurants in the downtown Fullerton area. It has decent selection of draft beer choices. The food is very good. One of my go to spots in Fullerton.

I have been to the Ship several times and never been disappointed. All the dinners I have had are great! The desserts are amazing - get the Spotted Dick! REALLY! Have a pint of Speckled Hen in the Pub with some Chips. And if you dare, get a side of spicy Curry to dip them in. Over all great experiences... More

Here with family, l love this place, great service, great food, and they have both either a bar atmosphere, or a family dining area. If you enter through the rear entrance, and your a Whovian, you'll be pleasantly surprised, the door is painted, and decorated to resemble Doctor Who's blue police box / time machine. Will be back , many... More
