The Red Pump was recommended to me by a young man who works in the food and beverage industry in Sarnia. I had asked about dining in Bayfield on our way to Goderich. I have to say that I am truly grateful for his recommendation as our dining experience was wonderful. The entire inn had been decorated for the upcoming... More

We've stopped at the Red Pump every year during our annual visits to Stratford. With both indoor and outdoor seating in a well-maintained garden, it's a wonderful place to relax and enjoy a quiet meal. The food is fresh and well-prepared and the prices are generally in line with those of the better restaurants in this area. Our time there... More

Went to The Red Pump after years of being told how good it was, and how upscale it was. Compared to other restaurants in the 20 mile radius it is upscale, but to my mind it is a very good gastro-pub. Fine destination from London, Ontario or from Port Huron, Michigan The six of us - three couples - arrived... More

We have been fans of the Red Pump Restaurant for a long time, but sadly, the quality of food has declined greatly over the last couple of years. It has always been a very expensive place to go, but we felt it was worth it for the beautiful setting and the well-executed menu. his is no longer the case. Our... More

Im not really sure what all the hype is about this place. Everything is so expensive. I dont get it. Why so much money for mediocre food? Even the drinks are way overpriced. I assumed a $7.00 beer would be a pint in a glass but,no, it was just a bottle of beer. I ordered the $20.00 fish and chips.... More

We have eaten here several time over the past few years and have been generally quite pleased. This week’s dinner however (for three) was a particular disappointment in one specific case. The entree consisted of three (very) small scallops and some corn relish – no veggies or anything else for that matter. It was really an appetizer at best, especially... More

Wonderful experience! I had the red snapper which was cooked to perfection. The couscous and vegetables were also delicious. My parents had the lamb chops which were also very good. Oh, they even served up a special free appetizer of escargot. Service was excellent and we will definitely be back. Nothing bad to say at all.

the red pump is a very special dining experience. it's where you would go for a special occasion or a date or a girls weekend. The food is amazing a little pricey but if it's a special night why not. They offer accomodations as well which are terribly overpriced but hey ! This is beautiful Bayfield and in the summer... More
