“Very British.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

Being in the UK only a few months back, I thought that I had travelled in a tardis and was transplanted somewhere in Britain. I enjoyed England's contribition to world cuisine, the chip. Chips were so British. I enjoyed my chicken pot pie very much, although the pastrie was a teeny bit stiff. Upon completion of my meal, I spied on the menu board of home made soup. I ordered the tomatoe and bacon, so rich, so velvety. I will return!

“Authentic Pub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

Wow...on a family trip to Cobourg...with such a clean beach...totally surprised. Then wandered up through the streets and discovered this quaint little gem. Tropical hot day...still sat on the flower-filled courtyard patio..absolutely charming. Generous portions, friendly, prompt service. Gotta go back on a grey, rainy November day and snuggle inside...could feel the comfort level as we walked through to the patio. Thanks for the hospitality!

“We love this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

Just a nice pub to drop into for a quick pint or a bite to eat. The patio is really nice, except for the smokers (yuck!). The food is pub food, not excellent but not bad. We are lucky to have this place in Cobourg.

“Great wings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

I've been going to this pub almost weekly for 20 years and still enjoy the wings and cozy atmosphere. Great wait staff too.
