This was one of many visits to this place. It's always a good time when we meet at the "Pouge", as they have good food and cold beer. Yes, they have cold beer, a fair selection of rums and Zambuca, which is the start of...More

Had an enjoyable meal here with friends. Loved the layout of the Pub and imagine it is a great spot during live entertainment. The food was good and service was great! Will definitely go back!

We went here after a local event for a drink and appetizers. Ordered a few beers and had the spinach dip which was absolutely amazing! Best I've had in a long time. It was an early Friday evening so it wasn't too busy. Nice atmosphere...More

I was told Pogue Fado was one of the "best" pubs in Halifax but we were disappointed. The clientele was very young the service was very slow and overall the food was not good. The chicken wings were why we went as we had been...More
