I am always surprised that this place isn't more busy every day. That isn't to say it is always dead, because it certainly is not. I love it here, they introduced me to my new favorite beer locally brewed in Calgary, Village Blacksmith. And always seem to pour the best pint as well, always cold and fresh tasting, they clean lines weekly!
They also have an incredible selection of other beers and their own signature cocktails including a delicious caesar made with smoked salmon vodka and topped with a nice piece of smoked salmon.
The food as well is always a happy surprise, pretty generic pub menu with a few exiting items but they all just taste so good, there is a popular pig theme as you may expect. Love the fries, the fish and chips are some of the best I have had, and even their take on a side Caesar salad is wicked.
Possibly the best thing about this place is that it knows what it is, a neighborhood pub, close to 17th ave don't come expecting a ladies night that brings in a DJ and transforms the place into a night club, the weekends can get pretty rowdy, just with people having fun playing some darts or pool and you can still hear your friends while you drink a delicious brew.
