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. Yes it was noisy, and parking is atrocious, but that is to be expected in a local watering hole with nice décor and a decent number of beers on tap . What I did not expect... More

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.

My wife and I visited the Olde Ship early one evening. We had never visited this restaurant/pub on Harbor and we have lived in Fullerton since 1975. The service was good, and the server was friendly and helped us with the menu. We both ordered Fish & Chips, which turned out to be an excellent choice, they were not greasy... More

The best place around to get authentic Fish and Chips and the only bar I know to get a shot of Pusser's rum!

Feels like England with a great selection of food. Step into another world!!! Highly recommend. The food is the best as English food goes. The atmosphere says it all and the friendliness is beyond compare.

Not too many English restaurants around, food is decent, prices are on the high side though. Only thing I can recommend you stay away from is the beef Wellington, way too expensive for what you get. Corned beef is great though and the desserts too. Lamb liked really good but I have yet to try it, lots ordering it though.

An authentic pub found in Fullerton! Delicious grub ~ curry chicken (oh please make it hot!) ~ fish and chips ~ add hot sticky pudding and you have found nirvana!

The Ship can provide a good selection of British meals, from bangers and mash to fish and chips. The service is great
