I ended up here because I was walking around late on a Saturday after walking around other parts of the city and everything seemed closed or it was fast food which I didn't want. I didn't really feel like walking back to other parts of downtown for more choices so I stopped in here. The services was bland, and even... More

A parody of a British pub, this place attempts the usual varied menu from shepherd's pie to curry and most things in between. I had the chicken strips and chips which were bland and undercooked. Add to that the fact the service is terrible and this really isn't a place you want to spend your evening.

We stopped in on a Saturday afternoon. Their selection of cocktails on the menu was limited, so myself and my daughter asked for a Bay or Sea Breeze. At the same time we ordered an appetizer. There was four of us. Our waiter and another waitress were trying to figure out if the bar could make our cocktails, when we... More

We just decided to go enjoy lunch here because we were starving and it was near the hotel. The staff was friendly, clean restaurant and good food. Our water and tea were kept full and the food came out quickly and was good pub food. I would definitely go here again!

This is connected to the Club Quarters at Adams and Clark in the loop. I made the mistake of ordering the mini Yorkshire Puddings sine this touts itself as a British style pub. Well, the meal was inedible! It didn't bear any resemblance to Yorkshire Pudding and was a rubbery, gelatinous mess. After one bite - which took some effort... More

We really loved the outdoor seating. Inside is beautiful. The food was very good. I had poutine for the first time and loved it. Reasonably priced.

its a nice place. Besides Club quarters hotel, the guests can have breakfast and other meals there. There is an entrance just for the guests that can acess with the room key. The environment is fantastic and they have options for breakfast. I strongly recomend the place

We shared the Butter Chicken Poutinerie (never had it before) and had a couple of beers - it was delicious! Great place to eat if you're staying at Mile North Hotel - less than a block away, straight out the front doors.

Only reviewing our breakfast experience - was here on a Sunday, place was empty. Found waitstaff to be disinterested and lazy - I don't think our waitress wanted to be bothered with providing adequate customer service. One in our party ordered the breakfast club sandwich, and when he saw the bacon "slice" was 1" by 2", called the waitress over... More
