This is a small restaurant/pub. Been here a few times, it's a hit and miss on the food. But when it is good, it's worth the price.

I had an hour so I went to the Olde Ship for lunch. I thought I'd get a prime rib sandwich but changed my mind and got a turkey melt. The sandwich and fries were served quickly. Everything was hot and tasty. Service was fine with the server paying just the right amount of attention to assure my needs were... More

For my best friends birthday we decided to come to The Olde Ship to celebrate his 21st! As the pub doesn't take reservations, we called ahead to inform them that there was a large party of at least 20 people coming for food, and on the phone they seemed happy to have us. For myself and my best friend, the... More

When we went, the food was good, the service was good, and the atmosphere was good. It was a little more expensive than I would have expected though.

Just like being in real English pub when having Baggers & Mash or Fish & Chips. Great selection of beers to wash down a hearty meal. I have the smaller lunch size meal when I go.

This is the second time we had lunch here. The first time was good enough to have us return. We were surprised at the lack of service this time. Our food was delivered cold and we had to ask several times for something.

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
