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

The food is great and the atmosphere was a lot of fun. My husband likes the Bangers and Mash! Bring your appetite as the good is great but so is the calorie count. :-)

This is my go to when I need to have a short me time! All the bartenders are great! Food is amazing and all waiters are so great! My bf and I make this one of are favorites; it's small and really busy at times and other times it's very local; it's a great balance!

Fuller's ESB on tap and the best fish and chips this side of the pond (some other great items on the menu too). True, not as good as being in the UK, but the next best thing in north OC.

Having visited England recently, I had a pretty good idea what a British Pub should be like – The Olde Ship was not this.

I had not visited the Olde Ship in many years since moving away from So Cal. Traveling on business I decided to take them for a meal and a pint. As expected, it was perfect. Service and food was great. The fish n chips, meat pie and bridie tasted fantastic! Priced fairly I would recommend everyone to visit.

It is a great local restaurant with English pub type food. Friendly staff and great wait staff. Our favorite is Greg. Try the fish and chips or pot pies. Priced right.
