Over the past few years the girlfriend and I have frequented this place quite often generally ordering the same three things every time: Ticos Nachos, House Crisps and a Rowe Burger. We absolutely loved these three items, but recently as of the new renovation we've noticed a severe drop in quality of the food. As such our most recent visit... More

We first tried the Fat Duck several years ago and loved it. We tried it again a few years ago and were sorely disappointed with the food. On our most recent trip we thought we'd give them another try just in case our last experience was an aberration. It wasn't. The food: mediocre at best. They do have a small... More

Although this place seems to struggle with a bit on an identity crisis (am I a pub or am I an upscale restaurant) it really is an excellent dining experience either way. I had a Curried Lamb Shank & my wife had a Perch special. Both were cooked just perfect and were quite tasty. The appetizer of pulled pork Nachos... More

I usually get the fish feature, and tonight it was extra amazing. The sides were green beans, grilled red peppers, carrots and fingerling potatoes. And the fish was beautifully prepared with pecans. Yummmmmmy!!!!

This used to be a gastro pub but now it is an ordinary pub with just okay food. Service is pleasant though. I asked the waitress if the meat in the steak pie was tender as I hate tough meat. She was honest and said it wasn't very tender. Got to love that.

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!

Food is always delicious and Fresh local produce used. The recent refurbishment has changed the look and it is very inviting.
