Good Food, Good Ambience and Good Music

Unfortunately this pub burned down last year but is in the process of rebuilding. Hopefully the service and the food will remain the same as it was. The pub had a variety of snacks as well as dinner plates and a wide assortment of beers. There are different bands that play for your enjoyment, and I... read more

My first visit to the temporary location and had burger and fries..neither too exciting..the burger patty was very dry and fries were almost brown so appeared to be cooked and cooked... Service was good. Hoping to get back to new location in the new year and hope food improves.

Very friendly staff serve traditional pub fare with great selection of beers. Now in temporary accommodation because of a fire in its more intimate home, the Spitfire delivers a consistent menu, if a bit uninspired. Best for brunch on the weekends.

I liked this place when it first opened but it's steadily gone downhill over the years and needs a major overhaul. It's popular amongst the locals, although I don't know why. Maybe it has something to do with the lack of selection of good pubs in the area. Value wise the food is overpriced for what you get and I... More

While the staff is friendly and accommodating, the quality of food at the Spit Fire has taken a downward turn. Judging by the orange appearance of the french fries I would say they have forgotten to change the fat in the fryer. I hope things improve soon. The Hants Cty area has an influx of restaurants and soon this low... More

The main building was damaged by fire and they have a temporary location just around the block. The place is larger by not as quaint. The staff is still the best in the town and the food still demanding of your attention. Although they are using a different building, their concept of being a welcoming pub with excellent food. This... More

We've always had a great time there. Hope they bring back the RAF display case again. I highly recommend the fish and fries...they're awesome!
