Been looking for this for a while. The rest of the menu is great. The pub side has some great beers as well. Atmosphere was great. Plan on parking behind the restaurant.

I friend recommended this place for some real English Cuisine. I had the Paul Jones Scottish Bridie and Rhubarb Crumble with Custard. The food was hot and had great flavor. Definitely worth a detour if in the area.

I have been to this restaurant a number of times and they do not have typical pub food.... they have some unusual items on the menu and the spicy meatloaf is one of my favorites. The staff is friendly and I've always loved those British accents. The pub also has a good beer and wine selection.

Our son recommended driving down to eat here and boy was it worth it. Drake's chicken pie was outstanding and the mashed potatoes were really good as were the peas and carrots. Everyone else liked their dinners as well. Service was good and the place is warm and cozy. Really nice dining experience and well worth the money considering the... More

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.
