Can feel like a local

There were about a dozen of us meeting there for lunch, both men and women, all seniors. I ordered the seafood chowder. The one server was very efficient taking and serving orders. My chowder was hot when served. However there was no choice between a cup and a bowl. The cup size generally reflects my capacity. The chowder was very... More

I never stop in Windsor without stopping at Spitfire Arms. This hidden gem of a pub is probably my favourite in eastern Canada. A dozen (or more) taps, including LOCAL beers, that would be pleasing to every palate - domestic or imported, light or dark, hoppy or malty - they have it all on tap! I don't eat here as... More

My wife and I went in for Supper while staying in Windsor for the night. The British Pub has a nice atmosphere and you can tell that the staff there really enjoy their jobs. The service was very fast and extremely friendly. They had a steak dinner on the special so we both decided to have it. They were both... More
