I came here with a friend in the evening and sat on the patio. The patio was small, but it sufficed. We planned on going to another establishment, but it was too busy. This place was on the same street and had patio seating available. We did drinks which were good and ordered a sharing platter. The platter was a... More

I have had fish tacos all over the world and these were my favourite of all- lightly battered fresh fish dusting of spice and served with fresh avocado.

This is a rather small place with some seating outside. Had come here a couple of weeks ago and it was too full. Tonight, on a Thursday evening it was much better and found a seat right away. My wife had the Reuben with salad. She agrees with other reviews on this site that it's very good. I had a... More

After reading so many positive reviews, I must say I'm disappointed with the food at The Pheasant Plucker. Nachos were a good size but cold and soggy in spots. Wings were good but if you can't make good wings, really what kind of pub are you? Beef deep decent but not stellar. At least they had horse radish. Fries were... More

Generous portions, cozy pub atmosphere. Be sure to ask your server for the daily specials - they never disappoint. Without a doubt, the best Reuben sandwich in the city.

Cozy little pub, Fantastic specials and the Fish and Chips are amazing. Could not believe the portion size and we had to get the rest as a take away. Nice staff, good service and excellent craft beers on tap. We are new to Hamilton and this is becoming our fave new spot. Would highly recommend.

I've been going there for years and have never been disappointed. Staff is always friendly and the food is delicious! Great atmosphere too! My Favorites are brunch, their wings and I love the fish and chips.

It's good but not great. The beer and food are pretty decent, but the service is lame. I've gone in, ordered, patiently waited, while others who have come in after me, have got their order before mine. Which is a whole bunch of wrong . the one co owner with the bald head and beard is to be avoided, he... More

The nachos were good. At first I didn't think there was chili on it, but it was just hidden. Great beer and great service. The washroom is surprisingly clean.
