Description: A popular family owned Gastropub set in the quaint village of Thornbury, Ontario. We are featured regularly on The Food Network's "You Gotta Eat Here!" Folks come for miles to enjoy Red Seal Chef Suzette Gerry's culinary delights, over 665 whiskies in Stephanie's Whisky Bar, and our impeccable service with seasoned waiters. All this nestled into our circa 1875 house with a welcoming and cozy ambience. Reservations highly recommended. YES when you see that little yellow airplane pulling a banner saying THEDAMPUB.CA-ALL DESSERTS HOMEMADE ...... that is us!

There were other options but we chose to wait; It was while waiting that I had to listen to some 3dlr food... More

I came to the Dam Pub with no expectations and found myself in love. The food was amazing. The prime rib was mouth wateringly good and everything was cooked to perfection. You could tell the chef has a real passion for their work. I did get a chance to meet Suzette the chef and I must say her incredible personality... More

We were visiting Collingwood , and saw this pub was not far away (20 mins). We had seen it on You gotta eat here the TV show. It did not disappoint, the service,food and ambiance were all above average. They even made steak pie for my husband at lunch time and it is only a dinner dish usually. They were... More

Great location- walking distance from the Lake. So many scotches to choose from! They had a rare one that my husband and I haven't enjoyed since we visited the distillery in Scotland- brought back great memories! Great service and atmosphere the perfect way to spend a very cold October day!

Took the family Apple picking and had remembered seeing the restaurant on TV. We visited on a Sunday and enjoyed the Eggs Benedict Sunday Brunch which was very good. The showstopper however was the mussels wow! Service was a little slow but a great atmosphere let the time pass quickly.

Two Fun Monday Evenings I have lately been to The Dam Pub for their Monday Evening Fare. On both nights, one can bring their own wine for a $1 corkage fee. The first time I had the Mussel special which was delicious. They were only $9. The second time I went with friends from Toronto. We had various Pub fare.... More

We had dinner here with friends on a week day. Very impressed. I have visited many pubs in UK and Ireland and Europe. This is as authentic as it gets. If you want true pub atmosphere, this is your place in Collingwood, Thornbury and Meaford. All four of us enjoyed our meals. I had the pasta special which was delicious.... More

We were quite impressed with The Dam Pub. The four of us were seated immediately on a Saturday afternoon. Although the menu is small, the four of us really enjoyed our lunch. The service was excellent. I didn't indulge in any scotch tasting but I will on our next visit. I highly recommend The Dam to anyone visiting Thornbury.
