My husband and I got married at The Local Gastropub last year on 6/28/14.

My husband and I decided to try the Gastropub because we had walked by it so many times exclaiming how we had to go in, and we were also looking for somewhere new to try for our 4 year anniversary. All the reviews seemed absolutely great, so we agreed to give it a try. Our waitress was extremely nice and... More

We went to the Gastro Pub this past week for dinner after many friends had recommended it. So we decided to give it a try. The service was excellent and the food delicious. The Pub is centrally located and close to the water front. We recommend if you are coming to Barrie to give it a try.

Hi Jenn So happy you enjoyed your fish and chips! I try to keep them as close to my local chippy back home! I am of course very sorry about the lack of CO2 in the pepsi. If that ever happens in the future please let us know and we will rectify right away... Cheers and enjoy this warm weather!... More
