We were here for a casual lunch. The food was good and the beer was equally pleasing. Didn't give it 5 stars because it was not exceptional. Everything was presented well and taty the kalamari was especially good as was the spicy burger that I had.

The spicy burger with fries is the best burger I have had in a long time. I have it every time I come here. The ambience resembles a casual pub, very comfy. The service is good. This is my to go to place when I want a burger.

We never expect much as far as food quality in small towns, but this was good pub/restaurant food , our fish and chips were great, most importantly the beer was great, not my favourite brewery, but I would give the beer a 4 out of 5, I would say this places beer is as good as a Vancouver brewery, the...

I did not see Pappa (why does Pappa need the extra P?). For that matter, I did not see Mamma either (note the extra M for effect). I hear they are nice. Not sure if they have kids. It would be odd if they didn't given their nicknames....but, I digress....the food is good. You will like it. I like the... More

Okay food, good service, reasonable portions. However, I ordered cider and despite this being a cider making region they had Danish import that was "alcoholized" apple juice.

Dropped in for lunch while vacationing. Had the fish and chips and a local brewed beer. Piece of fish was small and very greasy, like it had gone from deep fryer directly to the plate. The ambiance is basic pub style. The food that the four of us had would be considered mediocre. They should invest in a decent menu... More

This place should not be called a bistro - the food is horribe! My burger tasted like it was frozen and it wasn't cooked, I am hoping I don't get sick. The ribs my husband had were boiled with some sauce poored over them and my kids chicken fingers were just barely cooked. Do not eat here! This place is... More

The lunch menu was pretty standard pub food. The food was good and fresh, but nothing unique. The service was small town slow. The beer from Firehall Brewing was yummy, and the building was nice. You can watch them making beer in the downstairs.
