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.

My family and I come up to Blue Mountain, usually, one weekend a month...skiing in the winter, biking in the other seasons. We've enjoyed many good meals in the area, but I have to tell you that The Pub was different...we were welcomed with open arms and treated like old friends. We typically prefer to sit at the bar when... More

Birthday dinner for 14 people... An upstairs room was reserved which was a great idea, we also pre-ordered our meals so no disappointments. Not our first time here, excellent service, friendly staff, and the best lamb shanks!!! The food all came at the same time and it was piping hot. Excellent all around place.

What an amazing little pub. I went just before dinner and found it to have amazing food and drinks. The staff was wonderful and fast to bring out the food and my drink. Not a lot of wait time for food.

I unfortunately had a very bad experience here. The pub seemed awesome had a great patio and nice menu however the good stops here. The wait staff was flustered and unprofessional and we waited an hour to get served. We had 2 little kids with us. I asked if they had bread or crackers for them and I was told... More

Thank you for your review. Our family appreciates the feedback and we are glad you enjoyed your meal. You are correct in saying we have a limited printed menu. We focus on offering a smaller printed menu that we do a good job at rather than offer more and be hit and miss. Everything is made from scratch and made.... More

I planned a surprise 30th birthday party for my husband and had incredible service throughout the entire process and a ton of emails back and forth between Stephanie and Gillian. They were more helpful and accommodating than I could have imagined! During the party the service was incredible! We were a very large group and no one had to wait... More

You haven't lived until you've had the lamb shanks for dinner and chocolate paté for dessert. You HAVE to go there if you find yourself in the area.
