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!

My husband and I drove to Thornbury to have dinner from Toronto one night. The ambiance of the pub is lovely, very cozy and compact. The food was okay, my husband enjoyed the burger, I had the pasta and it was not what I expected for a gastro pub. I am a pasta fanatic, but unfortunately this did not do... More

We visited the Dam GP in December and January. Dinner and lunch and the food is excellent. Our servers have been pleasant and the whiskey list is incredible! You won't be disappointed.

We had dinner at the Dam Pub on a saturday night around 8pm. The decor is very scottish pub, we enjoyed the large variety of craft beers on the menu, and the whiskey selection was unbelievable! For our meal we had the crab cakes to start, they were ok but a bit bland (the chili mayo did offset that nicely),... More

very impressive head waitress - remembered all the specials for the day and managed to look after the whole dining section by herself. As mentioned food was solid and performed well. Agree with all positive comment of this place. If you are in this side of town, come here for a meal

Our holiday event was catered expertly... it was a casual dinner in our home for about 50 people with a variety of smaller portion/finger foods that the pub prepared in advance. The menu was extensive and included some of our Dam Pub favourites like mini shepherd's pie, crab cakes and smoked salmon on crustini's as well as coconut shrimp, lamb... More

We had lamb shank and salmon. Each was done perfectly and service was wonderful. It took a little longer because everything was cooked from scratch. Nothing was pre-made. I would go again and again!!
