Nice place for a drink but not dinner.

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

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.

Visited Dufferin Arms on Sunday. First time in it for years. What a wonderful experience. The food was fantastic and the portions were hearty. The chowder was amazing. The staff helpful and so welcoming. A great atmosphere throughout . Have shouted our dining experience from the roof tops. Will return very very soon.

We were there last night. Lots of banter, and chat with the locals....they have music evenings which we'd've loved to stay for, but we had a memorable evening, made very welcome, got hugs and kisses from some of the older regulars, highly recommend!
