Scotch eggs with chutney and mustard knocked it outta the park! My buddy loved his cottage pie, and the burger was great too. Wish I had saved some room for some desert pudding too.

It was a walk through flavor country. Awesome selection of Ontario Craft beer. They have a nice menu that doesn't overwelm you but seems to give everyone something to enjoy. Food tastes amazing and the staff is super friendly.

Took my parents for dinner. Not too loud as is the case with some other local pubs. Local musician played a nice variety and even some requests from my parents. Everyone was pleased with their meal. I can say the fish and chips were excellent.

Great home cooked pub food with the best selection of craft beer on tap North of Toronto. With large bay windows you have an indoor/outdoor atmosphere all through the year.
