You go here to have a drink and a good time since they have a bar and are open late but food is okay, acceptable, nothing great.

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.

This used to be a favourite of ours. Went for years on a weekly basis. The menu and service have changed drastically, We could always count on many great features but no longer. Menus are dirty with grease stains, the patio has the most rickety uncomfortable furniture but the most disappointing is the service. Service can be almost non-existent at... More

I've driven past the Fat Duck hundreds of times over the years, I finally pulled in for dinner. My wife had soup and salad, I had burger & Fries. The food was fresh and tasty. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu. The bill was reasonable. I will definitely return to the Fat Duck.

This is an awesome pub and a great place to watch soccer games. They have a good selection of beers and the food is pretty good. They use to have more Indo-British style food such as lamb burger with mango chatni but now they are more typical bar food but the quality is still high

Surprising food, ho-hum ambiance. Lots of local ingredients and microbrew. Recommend the chef specials. Last visit, started with the black bean dip and crudités followed by salmon with quinoa and fiddle heads on remoulade. Try it!

As a vegetarian, this place doesn't have many options for me but when I go I enjoy the thin cut fries with dipping sauces. Everyone is friendly and there always seem to be locals watching soccer at the bar.

Diverse menu without being too huge. Beef burger might be the best in town. Some classic pub fare, some indian specialites, and some foodie entrees, so everyone can be happy. Casual neighbourhood atmosphere, and nice selection of microbrews.
