I visited the Fullerton restaurant with a friend. As it was my first dining experience there, I was impressed with the English pub ambiance. The seating area booths were spacious and regal. The servers were extremely friendly and kindly described all the menu items that I had questions about. The ribena drink was amazing!! I enjoyed how well the fish was cooked. My friend's cottage pie smelled delicious, and she shared that the fillings were tasty, and the pie crust was crispy perfection. I thoroughly enjoyed the food and atmosphere, and hope to return again soon, and try a curry dish!
Ever since The Olde Ship opened, this has been my favorite thing on the menu. The flavor of the gravy is unlike any other gravy I have eaten anywhere. The portion is generous, so I am always has ppyvthat I have leftovers for lunch the next day. The cream of tomato soup is exactly how I dream it should be, and the sticky pudding is something that should be shared, but forget it. I want to eat the whole thing by myself!
I love the shrimp! So good...I've really missed coming here during the quarantine. Shrimp have a light batter that isn't oily. Always a good time here.
Truly, there isn't a single thing I've tried off the menu that has disappointed but fish & chips with a side of curry sauce and an ice cold pint will ALWAYS be my "go to". The flavor is impeccable and the ambience makes you feel as if you've just entered your local pub in England.
The service and food is always amazing. I have been there multiple times and have has so many different dishes that I have enjoyed. The environment and food is always great every time I have gone in. Their desserts are phenomenal.
All food is excellent and the service impeccable. Great atmosphere.
My husband and I love to come in for a relaxing lunch. He usually gets the fish and chips and I get my bangers and mash. Everything gets to the table hot and in a timely manner. We love the wait staff. They are always super nice. And the sticky toffee pudding with vanilla ice cream is the perfect dessert.
This would be my death row final meal. Proper fry up. Perfect with a pint of Old Speckled Hen. Add a banger and black pudding. Perfection.
Whenever I find myself pining to be back in the UK -- especially now that my summer school course in Scotland has been canceled due to the COVID-19 crisis -- I go to the Olde Ship for a taste of "home." The ambiance alone is perfect, but the fish and chips send me back to Whitby, Oban, or Wells-next-the-Sea. I live walking distance from the Santa Ana location, which I hope reopens soon, but I'm so glad the Fullerton Ship is still serving takeaway!
Been to England twice missed the breakfast...sure enough this just like i remember it. Excellent!! Thank you.
I've been going to The 'Ship' for about 20 years now. Always a excellent time. I've had almost everything on the menu but I always go back to my fav; Paul Jones Scottish Bridie. It's a one of a kind meal I've only seen here. With excellent Angus beef,onions, and spices wrapped in a yummy pastry covered in gravy it's soooooo goood. I'll usually get a cup of their fantastic clam chowder and a pint or 2 of the Hard to find Kilkenny stout. One of my favorite pubs ever. So cozy and welcoming.🍻
This was the first time we had tried The Olde Ship even though we live across the street. Our daughter was in the mood for fish and chips so we decided to order take out. It was some of the best fish and chips we have had. Even after picking it up and bringing it home the chips were not soggy and neither was the fish. It was still crisp and the cole slaw was amazing. We will definitely be returning to try some of their other dishes.
Loved this so much. The butter soaked toast is a stand out item. Everything was great and such a cool experience enjoying a traditional meal.
Scott's Salisbury Steak
This is the best Salisbury Steak I've ever had and the veggies are just as good. Top it off with a Guinness And it doesn't get much better than that!!!
The seasoning is just right to be especially spicy, yet not "I can't feel my lips" spicy.
I try to get a different plate every visit. The Chicken Curry was excellent a real reminder of home. It's so hard to find a Curry that has that special flavor. Cheers 🍻
Nothing like a warm chicken pie and a cold Strongbow cider! Although the Guiness beef pie is delicious, and the Scotch eggs are a favourite too! Whether it's fish and chips, or the soup of the day, the Olde Ship always has great food, atmosphere, and drinks!
Everything is so good. Especially the bangers and mash with a nice cold Guinness
When they describe this incredible dining location as a British pub, they mean it! From the food to the appearance, this incredible dining experience epitomizes a classic British pub/restaurant.
The Best Fish and Chips Anywhere! (Here or across the pond) Only downside is that I can no longer order this anywhere but here, all others pale in comparison. Cooked to perfection each and every time. Golden brown, perfect texture, not oily, served with delicious steak fry style chips and crunchy cole slaw with shredded carrots. House made tartar and lemons too. Yum!!!!
Best Fish and Chips in Orange County.. Always get an extra side of Mash Potatoes and that Awesome Gravy ! Can't wait to come back in.
I ordered this as takeout during COVID-19 lockdown after being reminded by a FB group to make a visit. It was so much better than expected, and stayed piping hot and flakey, even after the 10 minute ride home. I will definitely order again! And added surprise was that the peas and carrots were fresh.
Always willing to drive the 30 minutes to get my fix of cottage pie and sticky toffee pudding. Solid layer of potato over tasty gravy. Highly recommend
Churchill's Prime Rib & Yorkshire Pudding
So thick and juicy and the Yorkshire Pudding and Mashed potatoes with gravy are the best compliment along with full glass of London Pride Ale. Yummy!
Everything here is excellent, but this is my favorite! It is the quintessential pub meal and is so filling. Very much like the meat pies you get in the UK.
Clam chowder is my favorite soup. You didn't disappoint.
I love coming to o the Olde Ship for a hearty meal. The curry is especially amazing! I like my curry medium spicy and over rice. So much flavor in this dish, I highly recommend it! Makes me feel like I am back in a pub in London!
I had the scotch eggs and cottage pie and a nice stout. Holy cow everything was delicious. The waitress was friendly. I loved the bathroom decor. Everything was great! I can't wait until corona is over so I can come back!
This place is amazing! I've been coming here for years and their food and drinks never disappoint. My go to is the bangers and mash with. Cup of the clam chowder, along with a pint of Kilkenny
Super great. Wish i could go there today. But we have this Corona Virus going on. Be safe.
Excellent food and service, very cozy atmosphere. Bar area comfortable and lively conversation for lunch time visit. The decor matches the menu items and there were many choices to select, very authentic fare.
I had the Paul Jones Scottish Bridie and it was delicious. I was worried that the flakey crust would get soggy on the ride home but it didn't. The veggies and mashed potatoes were perfect. My husband had the fish n chips, you can never go wrong with those. Can't wait to order again and try something new.
Absolutely delicious. We come in on a weekly basis, usually Sundays. Missing it a lot right now bc of the stupid quarantine. Can't wait to get back in and drink a strong bow, eat some sausage rolls and mushrooms. Such a lovely atmosphere!!
My favorite fish and chips hands down, doesn't get any better with a black and tan to go with it!
Amazing atmosphere and delicious food! It's like a vacation with out leaving California. Stop in for a casual bite, come back with friends to watch a match!
Always enjoy the menu and try a different plate on every visit. I want to say that the Chicken Curry was excellent, very hard to find a decent curry here that reminds me of home. Cheers 🍻
Our all-American family adores this breakfast. Might sound like a strange combination but believe me Yankees, give it a try! This one is cooked to perfection, authentic, and really satisfying.
The Fisherman's Pie (Friday special) was the best thing I've eaten in months. Our family has been coming here for 25+ years
Lovely cottage pie, Been here three times and keep coming back!
Been to Fullerton location many times, first time to visit Santa Ana- loved it! Got the 1 piece battered fish and cole slaw and subbed in salad for the fries- delicious!! Thank you for great food and service!
