We arrived in prince edward county late and were just hoping to find a place open after 9pm serving dinner. We happened upon Waring house and their pub and it was great- live entertainment was so good and the food was yummy. Great find!

A hamburger so good that ketchup and mustard would be an insult to it. A vegetarian burger - black bean, corn and more that was terrific. To boot, entertainment to finish off the meal and a server with an outstanding sense of humour. All of this in an old stone house.

Met friends at the pub for dinner . Arrived at 6 before the rush . We were served promptly and the food was great . Noticed that the restaurant filled fast and then there was not enough staff to serve . A few people ended up leaving as they waited to be served .

Seemed more like a large motel than an Inn. Rooms were clean but dated and service was polite, but more mass production. Breakfast was a buffet and was good enough. Not my first pick for a couples weekend away.

We have come to this place a few times the past few years and it has never disappointed us. The food and service is always superb. There was a pianist(Sarah) playing the evening we visited. She was wonderful. We took our friends from Toronto here, it was their first time and they loved it. It was indeed a wonderful evening... More

We had always wanted to stay here and finally did. The inn lived up to our expectations. We stayed in the older part which was lovely! Breakfast was included. It was so nice to order off a menu and have our food freshly made. Will definitely return. Also ate our dinner in the pub which was superb!

The management has introduced a more upscale dinning room with great food. We personally love the pub atmosphere as they have live bands to entertain you. Good old rock and roll makes for a very lively and incredibly fun evening. Can't beet Beer and Wings once and a while. The management are truly a great group to make your stay... More

Our two great aunts took us here for lunch in Picton, Ontario. The restaurant is very pretty and comfortable. Our waitress was Linda and she was very good at describing menu and specials. I wanted to try their specialty but was too nervous to order liver and onions, but one of my Aunts went for it. Wish I had because... More

A lot of the ingredients are locally sourced which adds to the fresh taste of the food. There is a wide variety of options on the menu from nachos and burgers to full meals. Everyone has to try the Cheddar & Apple Soup! Another County favourite is Waupoos Apple Cider (which they have on tap).

We have stayed a couple of times here. Location is excellent, food and beverage as well and the staff are out to please. The rooms are a bit tired however and are overdue for a makeover, especially in light of the county becoming more trendy and a greater tourist draw.
