I absolutely love this place for a bite to eat. The specials change on a daily basis and everything is cooked from fresh (which is really important to me). The seafood chowder is in a league of its own. Full of fresh fish and flavour. The staff are always so friendly and attentive. Keep doing what you're doing guys.

We took my brother-in-law for a birthday lunch to the Dufferin Arms and we were, as usual, really impressed. The staff were so pleasant and attentive and the food was great, my husband and brother-in-law always go for the fish and chips and never regret it, I would say indeed they look forward to it!!

Really disappointed in main courses. Greasy scampi and side orders of black chips were nt good at all. Nice pub though and friendly staff.

We went to meet friends for dinner. We had heard mixed reports in regards to the food but decided to go and try for ourselves. All five of us had a lovely meals. It's good pub food and lovely helpful staff. The added bonus was the music session which was in a room off the main bar. We'll definitely be... More

My husband and I had a wonderful experience at the Dufferin Arms. The pub had been recommended to us by his parents and it did not disappoint. The atmosphere is friendly and inviting and the local musicians were exceptional. We had originally made reservations to eat at the downstairs restaurant but asked it we could eat upstairs instead so not... More
