Quaint little British style pub with good food and cold beer. The entry would be the only issue to people with mobility issues as the pub itself is downstairs from its front doors. Stairs have a sturdy railing, but it is not wheelchair friendly at all. Servers are extremely pleasant and smiling as much as one could smile. As our... More

We dropped in to watch a Jays game, which they turned on for us in the main part of he pub. It's small and cozy in here, a lot like a British pub. The food was ok. Standard fare. We tried to come back a few days later with 7 friends but they couldn't accommodate us until 7:30 due to... More

My date and I dropped in for a bite to eat. The potato fries and wrap were yum and my date enjoyed the burger. What stood out was how our server ensured I was happy with the wine. I'd never tried this particular Red, so a small taste was provided first. When I was happy with it, a nice full... More

At first glance after opening the doors and decending down a staircase, you wonder what awaits you at the bottom... a cute little pub overlooking the Grand River. Menu consists of typical pubs style fare, with options for everyone. Good selection of beers and ciders. Fast and friendly service in a tourist town.

I am from Scotland and just loved this place. I had a haggis dish that was served like a shepherds pie. It was as big as my head, but I managed to eat most of it (not usual for me) because it was beautiful! Great atmosphere and welcoming servers. Just loved it. Cant wait to go back!

We have stopped here for a midday lunch on three occasions and we have always been served in a friendly manner. The food is very good and very well prepared. We have had fish and chips and the burgers are excellent. You will be glad that we went down the stairs and the atmosphere is very comfortable and not at... More
