We visited this restaurant after taking a boat tour. We were discouraged that so many restaurant in the town were closed and thought that we would have to settle for almost any restaurant, but were really pleased with our dinner at the Old English Pub. We could see that the manager (owner perhaps?) wanted all the guests to have a... More

We had dinner at the Old English Pub after returning from the Thousand Islands cruise. Very interesting menu. Generous and tasty salads. We both had burgers...one stuffed with a four-cheese blend and roasted garlic, the other with bacon, crispy bacon, peameal bacon and a cheddar-bacon sauce...very delicious...came with hand-cut, unsalted fries! We will return to try other menu items. Service... More

Went to the Pub on Sunday Aug 31 with my son, daughter and 2 grand children. Good experience overall. Food was hot and tasty and the service was attentive and friendly. Prices were reasonable.

Have a cottage on the Rideau and went to "Gan" to do some banking/shopping. Hubby & I decided to grab a bite to eat and went in for dinner. Very English pub style atmosphere. Service was very quick and waitress very friendly. She suggested Friday special ... 2 for 1 beer battered fish and chips and we ordered. The portions... More

Husband and I stopped in for lunch. Ordered burgera and an appetizer of mini york pudding. Appetizer arrived quickly and was tasty (husband really loved). Burgers weren't able to be cooked to order (hubby likes rare) but they were perfect for me. We both enjoyed our selections. Platters were so full we were unable to finish everything! We will return... More

I rarely write a review of any establishment within a arbitrary radius of my home. I often find hometown reviews elsewhere to be biased based on local scuttlebutt, bruised egos and family loyalties and as such strive to be objective in my own. I seldom visit Gananoque for entertainment/dining purposes. It's quite close to my home and the cliché proverb... More

Certainly not the best....they had ribs on their menu and as their daily special. The ribs were cold and the sauce warm....was very disappointed in the meal. As others pointed out...nothing spectacular...our waitress was very nice and very friendly...but the meal was left to be desired. Gananoque needs good restaurants...we had the opportunity to try 4 restaurants during our 2... More

When we first came in, we though that we found a complete gem of an English pub. The menu looked like it had great potential. Good ambiance. Unfortunately this English pub had no English beers, I did not find the server to be very helpful or pleasant. Some of the food we received tasted as if it had been sitting... More

They have no English beer at this so called "English" pub!?! Only a limited selection of local brews. Very disappointing when I was hoping for a Guinness. Unremarkable food - seemed a bit stale. Service satisfactory but a bit slow. Atmosphere was the best part but even that wasn't great. I would not recommend this place.

We went for supper here on the suggestion of one of the staff at the hotel. Good choice, large portions and very tasty!
