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

One weak spot - not a great selection of wine. Nonetheless, they're headed in a great direction and you should check it out.

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. I had the Chicken pot pie with a puff pastry topping, can you say creamy, and piping hot, my wife had the the Philly steak sandwich, both... More

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.

Great location to be able to enjoy a pint of beer with lunch or dinner. Great home cooked comfort food and a friendly atmosphere with a true English pub feel.

Stopped in for a dinner on Easter weekend with a family of 5. Despite the 'adult' appearance of the pub, by which I mean 'place to drink with mates' not 'place to bring your toddler children', the wait staff were super accommodating, finding us a corner table and high chair in seconds. The food was some of the most authentic,... More

food is average pub fare with a huge variety of dishes to choose from. Prices are average compared with other places. Staff are friendly and although its a cozy atmosphere it does need a makeover. They have a great outdoor patio and a nice upstairs dining room for more formal occasions or group parties. Only problem is the washrooms are... More

Awesome home town pub. Nothing the same in cobourg. Great atmosphere super friendly and a nice selection of ales. Just a short walk from the beach in the downtown core. Just a good ole fashion pub

Great pub with a good bar, busy atmosphere. We arrived without a reservation, but wanted to be at the bar anyway, so no disappointments there.

I am not a super fan on the bar space and wouldn't choose to sit at the bar again... just not enough space and had to look through the draft and bartender for the TV. The food was really well done and lots of spins on regular things like nachos and brie cheese dishes. Would like to go back to... More
