“Eggs Benny”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

The 1/2 eggs benny for breakfast is a steal!! Soooo yummy... shrimp smothered in hollandaise and all decked out with crisp hash browns ...for 5 and a half bucks! Wow! Services was great. It's a lovely, cozy place. I'm going back.

“Don't waste your time or money on this place”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

We brought our out of town guests here for supper...they had been to this pub years ago and quite enjoyed the halibut burgers...i always have bad luck when i go to this pub but willing to try again...it was somewhat busy but as usual the service was crappy...our youngish server was more interested in attending the tables of some young men then helping us...too bad cause i am pretty sure we are good tippers!! once we got our beverages and food order in we waited an eternity for our very expensive meal...our halibut burger now costs $16.00...okay, fish prices have gone up but what really choked us was this wasn't even fresh halibut...FROZEN..i had a feeling it was cause the burger smelled very fishy and a very pathetic piece as well...my friend couldn't even eat hers....then there was the veal cutlet dinner...cold potatoes..over cooked mushy vegetables...very bland...i can say without a doubt this is our last trip to this pub!! thank goodness there are many other pubs who put out terrific meals at a decent price and servers who aren't consumed on who will provide the best tip....sad....very sad.

“Breakfast!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

Great place for a quiet breakfast with reasonable prices and great service. Off the main road next to Westwood park. A great place to walk off your breakfast.

“Host our Group of 30”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

Our car group visited the Jungle Pot Pub for an old car cruise, Brian and his staff had parking set aside for us, space for 30 plus for sitting and a great meal, Welcome sign lite up welcoming our group, and to top it off a gift for our patronage. Our waitress was super! It was a Friday night too....well prepared for us.This is our three trip here.... Thanks to the entire staff...really felt welcomed!
Recommended for prearranged group activity!
