The Steak was perfectly cooked medium rare. The steak sandwich was also perfect, however the beer was surprisingly warm. We shared a pitcher of Olands Export. We also had breaded coconut shrimp as an appetizer, 7 came on the plate, they were a very healthy...More

We were able to walk in and be seated within minutes. We ordered coconut shrimp, Nova Scotia maple bacon scallops, and pale ale battered fish and chips. The fish and chips were good. Great way to sample Keith's before and after the Tour. 🍻

This pub is located inside the Kieth’s brewery. Typical bar/pub menu. Good, friendly service at the bar. The grilles sausages made a great bar snack. How can you not love a place with a motto “where the servers don’t wear pants.”

Stopped here for lunch and a cold beer. We shared the fish and chips, more than enough for 2 people. It got quite busy while we were there but the staff were excellent. The only downside was the very loud music, much better to keep...More
