I go here often to meet up with friends for lunch or business. First off it's a Pub...So anyone that is complaining about bad chicken fingers and fries has too much time on they're hands. Pubs are all about friendly service , cold beer and a nice neighborhood feel , all of which this place has. A lot of the... More

Our visit was very disappointing, my gut told me it was going to be bad as soon as I opened the door, we should have walked right out! My wife had the fish and chips and I had the beef dip on a pretzel( I think that's what it's called). The fish was saugy, no crispy batter whatsoever. the beef... More

Had the chicken fingers and fries, it was around $15.00. Chicken fingers were good, but I expected more from the very bland, boring french fries. Expensive meal considering I only ate the chicken fingers.

If you are going for food here look somewhere else. Expensive menu for low quality food. Wouldn't go there again.

Not bad food here but the servers at usually chatting with each other at the bar and table service is slow. You can hear their adult chats throughout the restaurant with the bar staff. If more attention was paid to the customer they would do better

went to the Barley Mow with work colleagues after a long day - table service was prompt and friendly, drinks served quickly. quite a big menu but plenty to choose from. Extensive drinks menu too. Burgers were really good (washed down with a couple of beers!)

Good place for patio beverages. Serves decent pub fare. The interior is very worn out and in dire need of a rennovation.

I popped in here on a Friday evening with a few friends with the intent on getting a quick drink in a local pub. I decided to indulge in a few of the menu items and was pleasant surprised by the size of the portions. I stuck to traditional poutine, which was fine while my partner indulged in some large...
