Although the food was good, the atmosphere was very very loud, including the waiter who you could hear from several tables over. We were seated at a table for two, that was within 18" of the tables on both sides of us, making any meaningful conversation impossible. I asked if we could be moved to a larger table so that...

We went to Wellington Gastropub to celebrate a birthday, and reserved the White Room since we were a large group. It was a wonderful experience. The service was friendly and efficient. Our menu included chilled potato, leek and fennel soup, green salad (with pickled asparagus, goat cheese, apple, walnut and vanilla-riesling vinaigrette). For the main course we had the choice...

The food menu is small but everything on it is creatively prepared and flavourful. Comparatively speaking, the beer selection is substantial and contains many tasty options. Today I enjoyed the short rib ragout... and when I say enjoyed, I mean that I could easily have returned and had it again for dinner! I've eaten here before and not once have... More

I was lucky enough to be treated to my birthday at this quaint and comfortable little restaurant. I have never had more perfectly done Arctic Char and the bean vegetable dish that accompanied it was incredible. The service was spot on and my dessert was decadent. Prices were extremely reasonable for the high calibre of food and service. I suspect... More

Had pleasure of having dinner here, we had the risotto and braised ribs as main courses with scallops and tuna tartar as starters. All were delicious and well prepared. The choice of draft beers is outstanding. Great informal ambiance. Prices were very reasonable.

Went for the first time on a snow windy weekday evening. We were greeted by a most pleasant young man who showed us to our table and hung up our coats. We were given attentive, professional and pleasant service. The atmosphere is very relaxed, warm and inviting. Both our meals were absolutely delicious (I had the artic char - so... More

Have visited the Gastropub for dinner and thought it was an exceptional experience. The selection of wine and food is excellent. Here is a restaurant that understands food, wine and service. A little pricey, but still good value.
