Seems they've up the game with their menu of late. Hands down THE best nachos we've ever had anywhere. Lovin' the changes! Very popular spot on Wings Night - almost impossible to get a table. One weak spot - not a great selection of wine. Nonetheless, they're headed in a great direction and... read more

If your looking for a dive bar then you've found it !!. Nothing really redeeming about this place. People seam to like it but I don't see the attraction.

At least I don't have to worry about running into anyone I knew from high school. Maybe my mom does.

Beautiful patio covered in flowers! Diverse menu, good size portions for a fair price. Waitress was very helpful and attentive. Would definitely return.

We stoppdd in here during a trip to Cobourg. We sat out on the patio which was quite lovely and decorated with flowers and quite bright. Our server didn't seem very enthusiastic but she was quitr nice. The lunch special was fantastic so much food for a lunch. It was a nice little stop in. I would go back.

Great service. Caesar salad was terrific. But the steak and kidney pie was the BEST i ever had, EVER! Will be back. Rare gem of authentic British pub food in Cobourg.

Stopped in while in Cobourg. It was a nice place. Presentation of food was great. Excellent drinks. Our server was wonderful, she was so polite and always there when we needed her. It was quite busy and she was still great.

Stopped in for lunch last Saturday, a very authentic British pub, Great atmosphere and friendly efficient service, a great selection of pints. The menu is varied with lots of tempting choices, difficult decisions.

Have been to the pub a handful of times since moving to Cobourg a few years ago. Typical pub that is kept nice and clean. If you are wanting a pint in a nice atmosphere then this will not disappoint.
