This place needed a renovation 20 years ago, seats are dirty and uncomfortable. The service was fine but the food was poor at best. Don't waste your time or money unless you have no taste buds and don't mind dingy.

stopped for lunch last week with a business associate. The decor is filthy and the whole place had a putrid smell. The server brought us water and there was a dead fly floating on top of one of the drinks. We left. Will never go back!

Mashed potatoes appeared to be from a box, vegtables were what I call california style and looked like they were bought frozen from the grocery store. Probably my own fault for ordering a meal and what is clearly a bar. Only good thing was the male server shawn. Super friendly but the rest looked like they were just trying tp... More

We had the pleasure go going to this restaurant and were very pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere was typical of what I see as a typical English pub but very quiet and relaxed. The music was a very comfortable background level. The food was excellent and the staff very attentive and friendly, despite being overwhelmed by the number of customers. Definitely... More

Excellent food and friendly pub atmosphere. Our meals came quickly and the beer and cider on draft was excellent. Our server was very talkative and helpful. We felt completely at home and look forward to visiting again next time we are in Port Hope.

We saw this driving to the Fire Fighter Museum. When we asked the girl there if it was good, she said they had cornish pasties and I had to go. The french onion soup was great.

We waited 15 min just to get menus, waited another 20 minutes to order and were very dissapointed with the food when if FINALLY arrived. Veggies cold and not cooked, small portions, and a club sandwich with hardly any chicken on it. I could understand if it was busy, but it wasn't! Won't be back!

I went with my mother's Red Hat Lady group for lunch. Out of 16 people in the group only 3 liked their food. I ordered fish and chips, It looked good but the fries were just ok (your typical frozen fried chips) the fish was pretty nasty, lots of greasy batter and little fish. Two ladies ordered chicken pot pie... More
