We also have a great pub for get togethers with friends or casual meetings with clients all in an 1856 historic building.

If it's a group, a family outing or a romantic night out give us a call or just drop in and we can accommodate all your needs. Cheers from The Goose!!

“Great place to eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2014

My son was playing ball in Ottawa and on our way back home to Napanee we stopped to have a bite to eat. Great atmosphere, people and food!

“The burger was good but the beer was flat....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

The burger and fries were fine, but not outstanding so it is doubtful whether that meal was worth the $12.99 price. We each had a different on-tap beer, neither memorable and one of the quite flat. Also, it would have been helpful to see a list of beers available rather than rely on the server reciting some dozen possibilities. My partner's ribs, however, were fine and a good price since they were a special. So this is a mixed review.
We ate in an outside patio and the flies were a bother, but I doubt that they could have done anything about that.

“A tasty lunch”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

Had my first experience of a smoked meat sandwich today. It came with a choice of fries, salad and various dressings or soup. The salad was great and the garlic dressing lovely. Servers were friendly, attentive and polite.

“Just a nice spot for lunch...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

We couldn't believe our luck when we drove up, a parking spot became vacant as we arrived. Then we went inside, not really expecting room on the patio, but there was.

Cold beer, good food, wonderful service and in beautiful Merrickville to boot!

This is our second time, the hardest part Is to pick something from the menu. We had the Philly Cheesesteak and the burger. The table next to us had the pizza, that will be next visit!

The hardest thing about the cheesesteak was figuring out how to eat it, it was enormous.

“Thank you dinner for my hostess”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

We decided to try this pub
Pleasant pub atmosphere
Promptly seated and ordered our selection of salmon basted with a ginger orange

It arrived at our table swiftly
We we disappointed that it was not cooked through and asked that it be returned


The second plate arrived. The salmon was coked through but cold

We did not send it back. Overall, I felt badly that my hostess did not have the meal that we expected
