We have 5 cosy, comfortable historic rooms and we are a short stroll to the Main Street and Shaw Festival Theatre; as well as a short drive to many of the local wineries. We offer hearty British Pub fare as well as 24 selections of draught beer on tap and 17 different wines by the glass. Live entertainment is provided on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights (Wednesday during peak season). Stop by and visit Canada's prettiest town!

we used to cherish this place as an affordable, down-to-earth spot during the formative days of the shaw festival, but a recent stop identified it as clearly a fallen angel... brusquely told that it was "out" of one of its signature beers, then flipped open a menu to find hamburgs in the $15 range? we understand it's a favorite among...

My wife and I and guests have lunched previously at this busy restaurant. Yesterday we made reservations and took another couple along for dinner. We would not do this again. Service was prompt and the atmosphere was as expected except for the extreme noise. We gave up trying to have a conversation because we had to shout to be heard.... More

A great blend of pub fare, fine beer and ale and an atmosphere right out of the 1700's.

This is an necessary stop when in NOTL. It is the oldest pub in North America and you can still see visible signs of damage from the War of 1812. Great customer service and a long list of beers on tap.

We always visit the Angel Inn on our first night in town. They have a variety of beers and the food is yummy. Coming from the states, we always enjoy the fries with gravy. There has always been music on Fridays and we have enjoyed a convivial evening with good conversation and friendly folk. We just have fun!

My favorite pub in Niagara on the lake or anywhere else for that matter. service is excellent. Menu is extensive wide ranging and adequately priced. Prime rib is excellent but my favorite will always be the sheperds pie.
