    Bacon sarnie, fish and chips, breakfast, great beer selection. Sticky toffee pudding & rhubarb crumble are the best desserts in town.

    The lunch special Cottage Pie. Not a huge serving... but decent for the price. Oddly you get a bowl just as big with gravy. Maybe use some gravy but ask for HP Sauce to add as well.

    If you don't mind greasy food nor traditional British food, you'll like here. Very heavy food...

    Love the sticky toffee pudding. And the live bands. One you can eat, the other you can listen to. I won't say which.

    The fish and chips is AMAZING. Wash it down with a few bottles of champagne and, you ready to start your Amy wine house themed night.

    Best 'British' menu I have seen in the US to date... I am a theme pub snob, being British but this place rocks!

    Try the Beans on Toast! Six pieces of fried toast, arranged three to a side and stacked like the masts of one of the many ships the Olde Ship immortalizes in their menu. Simple but so good! Read more
