I love going to pubs and try at least one local pub out whenever I am travelling. There are typically three pet peeves of mine when I go to a pub.... 1. Soggy or microwaved onion rings, poor beer selection and crappy bangers and mash.
Well, I ordered all three at the Sandtrap Pub & Grill tonight. I ordered the Oust Ale. An IPA from a local brewery in Niagara on-the Lake. I was pleasantly surprised by the hoppy bitter flavour of this ale.... I ordered another. As a starter, I ordered the onion rings. It didn't come with any dip but really it didn't need to since they were crisp and full of flavour. Onion rings have been frozen or microwaved tend to be limp when you bite into them. I hate it when on the first bite the entire onion pulls out of the batter. This did not happen with the onion rings ordered from the Sandtrap.
After my first pint of good beer along with my onion ring, came my bangers and mash. The potatoes were homemade and full of flavour, the sausage was tasty with a hit of ale and the gravy was a prefect consistency and temperature. And the best thing about this meal was.... it wasn't salty!
The decor was light and modern. The service was prefect and the food was reasonably priced and a good portion size. I brought my family with me tonight and we all left looking forward to the time we could go back again. Finished the night off with a game of pool before heading home.
Sandtrap Pub and Grill is a must when visiting the Niagara area. BTW, I'm from Calgary.
