The only thing that is "old english" about this place if there is a 80 year old english guy in the back cooking the food...because service is sloooowww. Had a reservation with a larger group...half people were done eating before I got my food...which did not come in the order I asked for. 20 minutes waiting on a glass of... More

My husband and I went to the Old English pub for lunch as part of a day trip to Gananoque. We were charmed by the décor that was closest to a traditional English pub in Eastern Ontario (according to my British husband). We also were impressed by the choice in the menu of many pub favourites. In the end, I... More

Don't expect to find British beer brands like Boddingtons, NewCastle, Tetleys etc.., here on tap or in a can or Bottle..In fact if you like Craft Beer this is the place for you. If you are like myself and like a good British or Irish Pub this is not the place for you either... First time in my life I... More

We were there in early November on a Saturday night. Great food, great staff, and to top it off, live music! Real British atmosphere.

Very cozy atmosphere, a walking distance from Holiday Inn Express and Suites. We went in late afternoon so it was quiet with nice background music. My wife had the fish and chips; the fries were excellent and well seasoned; however, even though the cod tasted good, the batter was not crispy. I had the turkey dinner special with all the... More

Menu is typical pub fare with good sized Servings. We knew it would be a slow evening, but since we were out to enjoy the group, the... More

I've eaten here a few times and it's on par with most pubs. Food is ok, prices are somewhat pricey but portions are good for the money. There are tons of beers to choose from which is a selling point for some of my friends and service is usually good. Any meals I've eaten here have been fine....average pub fare.... More

1. Fish n chips ordered was sub par. Bland really. Not crispy. Not interesting. Good price though 2. Big group came in and waiter never came back. 3. I don't believe in not tipping. But I was tempted to not tip. I only gave a low tip considering we never saw the waiter after the initial meal.

They have a dozen or more beers on tap, many of them craft beers from the region so I'm sure you'll find something you like. Friendly staff relaxed atmosphere good menu of pub fare. Good stop in after work for a quick debrief with the team.
