Asked for a menu to look at before entering and the server basically thrust it at me and walked away. We went in anyway as the menu looked good. Asked for a place to sit and were told the back section is for smoking and the front section is non-smoking. Then they told us that my daughter cannot stay since... More

The pub was quite busy on this Tuesday night with a community live music event in the square behind the pub. We found a table on the patio and my companion pronounced the local beer 'good'.

Pretty standard put fare with good local breweries on tap. The waitress was very no-nonsense but she was fast. I enjoyed a nice sized salad with good cuts of steak on top.

It's been difficult to find some decent hoppy IPA in Canmore and Banff but here is a gem of a place with excellent IPA on tap. Great value with a pint fit $5 during happy hour. Sat outside on temperate summer evening supping 3 pints, feeling happy. Great place with friendly bar staff.

I love the atmosphere in this pub and the waiting and bar staff are first rate. Friendly and efficient you'll never end up staring at the bottom of an empty pint. Foods good solid pub fare too. Nothing fancy but tasty and well priced.
