We met friends here for dinner and drinks. Service was very good. Some food is great esp. appetizers though main meal fare mediocre (steak and brie for e.g.) Noise is an issue so not really a place to have intimate conversations. Good selection of beer and bar drinks. Overall would recommend.

I'm a Brit so I like a good pub and this is one of them. Can get a little rowdy at times, especially on a Friday or Saturday. Try and avoid those days if visiting with children. Staff are great and the food is very good for a pub.

I ventured into this place 2 days ago upon advice from friends in Barrie. I was NOT disappointed. Owner Steve came and greeted us at one time, the service was cordial and fairly speedy considering that BOTH sides of this establishment were full. Food and entertainment on BOTH sides. Other bars and clubs have come and gone in this area,... More

I had two bites of my food and still paid full price for it. The restaurant was dirty and very very loud. I wouldn't reccomend this place for... More

If you want a fun pub experience and great food. This is the place to be. The meals are excellent and the staff is friendly. I can say that this is my favorite place to be for a lunch or a night on the town.

A very well run restaurant and bar. The food is top quality. This not fancy fine dining but excellent well prepared pub fare. The service is attentive and the clientele is a nice mix of both young and old.

Everyone was very friendly. Staff was available and accommodating to requests that were made by the person who planned the party. The food was ok, but a lot of the menu items included a dill sauce which I thought was very ordinary, plus I'm not a big fan of dill in recipes...that's just me. I love dill pickles though. They...

Fun pub in downtown Barrie. The food was great and the staff friendly. there is a room away from the bar if you like it a bit quieter, can be very loud.
