Veal liver

Delicious dish. Liver and demi glaze were great, veg and mash were great. The double smoked bacon seemed to be a little over-cooked. This was my first experience with veal liver, so I wasn't entirely sure what to expect. It was a little fatty. In hindsight, it must have been perfect if not for my... read more

What a great place to seat on the patio and have local beer and enjoy some fresh made food on site not mass produced. Love it.

This is not the 1st time that we have gone there for dinner. The service is always great, the price of wine on the weekend is very reasonable, & if you purchase wine from 1 of their menu & you don't finish it, You get to take the rest home. The staff members are always very helpful & knowledgeable .... More

My husband and I were driving around on our second afternoon in Guelph and spotted this pub. It was before 5 PM so I thought this might be a quiet spot to eat, have a drink and talk. It definitely lived up to expectations, but easily exceeded them. The food was amazing. Appetizer platter with samosas was very tasty and... More

I looked up the menu online and really wanted this starter! To my dismay, they were out. The second last time I came in for their amazing Salmon steak on field greens, but they were out. So today, I ordered the pastrami with sauerkraut, spicy aioli, smoked cheddar on a Reuben. They must have meant on rye. It was, and... More

I've been to the Fat Duck several times, and really enjoy the quality of their food. The service is often a little on the slow side, but it isn't usually an issue as the food is worth waiting for. We were extremely disappointed today, though. We arrived on the later side of lunch, and other than one group in the... More

I went here because I had heard a friend talk about it a couple years ago and thought ... "Oh - there's the fat duck" Hmmm ... almost needless to say ... i was not impressed in the least. Was really surprised at how dirty and unkempt it was ... it looked like there had been a monster college bash... More
