Tiny menu with very high prices considering what they offer. I ordered the fish and chips, the fries were reheated and disgusting and my fish and peas were both ice cold. My son ordered a kids meal which was not only nasty, but didn't even include a side, drink or dessert. On top of the really really bad food, we... More

A bit disappointing. Menu is very limited, not a lot of choice and a bit pricey for what you get. Food was good but slow. Some is authentic british pub food. Shakespeare Arms is better if that is what you are looking for.

1st time choose based on reviews and was not disappointed. Just me and my husband who had the chef curry special and I had the chicken curry pie. Choice of beer on draft was great and atmosphere even better not fancy but comfortable booths great service. Only one suggestion is the washrooms which need major attention. Definitely will return.

My husband and I went for a Thursday dinner. They were not busy at all so we were seated right away. The waitress brought us menus and took our drink order right away. When she brought us our drinks, she quickly rhymed off the specials: all of them were appetizer's. We asked about the dinner special. There wasn't one. We... More

I was pleasantly surprised when I picked up the menu at this pub. They offer some very authentic British Pub fare. We had Bangers and Mash, Chicken Vindaloo wrap and an Artisan Farms Burger. All were delicious and filling, accompanied by beer and cider made for an enjoyable evening.

Absolutely wonderful pub. The owners are terrific, the food is generaly very good. The atmosphere is wonderful, very cordial. Service in the dining room varies between exceptional and somewhat lacklustre.

Warm night in Guelph called for a cold draft and a light meal. Great selection of draft beers and an uncomplicated menu. Curried chicken pot pi and steak and ale pot pie just a bit too much for a hot evening so we settled on an Indian starter platter and house salad. Salad made with arugula and mescaline mix and...

Stopped in on a summer night for a beer and a snack on the patio and was very impressed with their wings. Huge, juicy with delicious sauce. We had the hot butter but there were many choices. Beer was cold, service was friendly and the atmosphere was very comfortable on the patio..... we will visit again.
