1st visit, was pleased with the food. The Indian Samosas appetizer was excellent and unexpected. Fish & Chips were very good, fish was well prepared. I'm not a big beer drinker but liked the selection, an organic beer. Eclectic menu but interesting. Service was good, staff friendly. I'll go again and try something different

We were excited to try the Fat Duck again after it's recent renovations, but sadly we were disappointed. The decor is a bit mis-matched and the menus are now blurry photocopies! Maybe they're still trying to get things together after the renovations? We went on a Sunday night and found the service to be very, very slow. Once we finally... More

Absolutely love this place! The food is fabulous and servers and staff are friendly and warm. Daily specials and a great experience every time we dine here. Quite busy on weekends so reservations are recommended especially for larger groups. Best wings in Guelph! Salads are delicious and the mushroom and Stilton on toast is a favorite!

Thus is one if our favorites. I love their Curried Chicken Pie, it is fantastic. Portions are generous and service is fairly quick. A good selection of local brews on tap. They run occasional Trivia contests which are fun.

this neighbourhood pub seems to have a Welsh influence, and is popular with people of all ages. On the last time we visited, there was a duo playing on the patio, and quite a few folk seemed to be enjoying their music. We were inside. Food is decent, with a good selection of beers on tap. We would go again.

We live in the neighbourhood, so we dine here fairly often. I have noticed that the restaurant is getting a little run down and is in need of a pick-me-up or at least a good cleaning. Tonight we sat on the patio and I'm so glad we did! There was live music - 2 great guitar players with wonderful voices... More
