Food simply OK

One meal was very good (fish and chips) while other was poor (lamb burger). Thought restaurant would have been better.

We hadn't been here for years because the last time we went, the food was extremely average. We had a steak pie. a curry poutine and my son had a burger. His burger was... More

Be prepared to take stairs down to the basement. Food and atmosphere are typical pub style. Ok place if you want to grab a beer and snack.

My husband and I went to this pub twice during a weekend stay in Elora. The first time was for a post dinner drink and dessert. This was one of the only places open on a Friday night it seemed! The pub is downstairs but overlooks the river. When we were there, a group of musicians were playing in one... More

This place is pretty much as described in other reviews. I did not find it as dank as some have described. We were there on a rainy day and we found the place comfortable. We had one of the local beers on tap...the smoky honey lager. Would like to try some of the other selections.Was a Saturday afternoon and the... More

Found this pub to be dated and somewhat cold and drafty. The walk to the bathroom has you encountering a very unappetizing smell of dank, moldy basement/sewer. The service was just ok. Food was average. Steps down into this basement pub make it not handicap accessible. Won't return.

We stopped in here for dinner on a Friday nigh and the place was packed. We ended up sitting near the entrance. Not the greatest place in freezing February. I ordered a burger which was mediocre and my wife had liver and onions. She said it was pretty good but the mashed potatoes dominated the plate. The men's room was... More

I was there when Adrian Jones had his students playing - very small but bright enough Menu had a great selection of food with good sized portions. I had the Beef - Guiness Pie which was delish coming with mashed potatoes, gravy and peas. Even have some Indian food. Everything looked good that was ordered by the 20 people I... More
