My friend and I went for dinner because we hadn't been in years. The good things: great ambience, amazing service and very clean place. Mixed drinks were good. The mussels were plentiful, but the toast was burnt that came with it. For a vegetarian, there is one option for entrees. The poached eggs with red wine sauce was more like... More

This a very comfortable spot, with friendly service and great food. The wine and drinks lists are solid, too. We started with the warm shrimp cocktail and caesar salad, and for mains the steak and the salmon. All were solidly prepared and beautifully plated. To finish, I had the cheese plate and my husband had the cheese cake. Again, both... More

Bayfield is a lovely, short drive from Stratford and we always go for a half day trip. This year we found the ArtSee Cafe, a favorite, has gone out of business. So, we had lunch at the Red Pump Inn's restaurant and it was WONDERFUL! The food was fresh and delicious and we sat in the back garden- peaceful and... More

We have been eating lunch at the Red Pump on our trips to Batfield, since 1984. We now only go up annually and this most recent visit did not disappoint us. We had a very quiet, peaceful lunch in the back garden and were very pleased with the food and the service. Please allow time to enjoy the atmosphere. It... More

Our family of five (three teens two adults) arrived to a semi empty restaurant and the very first question before greeting us was 'do you have a reservation?' Note to servers: I understand why you ask the question but realize that it made our family feel like we were inconveniencing you by arriving to spend our money. Secondly, it should... More

My husband and I celebrated his 75th Birthday Dinner there last night. From the moment we arrived, our server Julie was right there. Never hovering, but right there when needed. We were treated to Chateaubriand for one (great idea), and Rack of Lamb, both cooked medium rare and perfect. We decided to eat indoors as it was very warm, but... More

We stopped to have a drink and enjoyed a wonderful margarita. Actually a couple of them each. The service was great. The restaurant menu was mostly seafood driven but the salads were excellent. We loved the atmosphere and decor inside the restaurant.

Dropped in on an impromptu basis for a Sunday lunch and were pleased to find an outdoor table by the road. Check out the patio are in the rear as well, very lovely spot to have good eats and commune with nature. The menu was short (which in a way is nice) and everything on the menu seemed like a... More
