The Spitfire is your friendly local pub/restaurant. It is a busy spot but the service is fast and friendly...and the food is good. They will adjust the selections to your taste as much as they can which works for fussy me and the prices are very reasonable We usually go on weekends when there is live entertainment and we usually...

This is, by far, my favorite Pub. The food is excellent. There is a wonderful selection of beers on tap. And the staff is always very friendly. It is one of those places that leaves a wonderful taste in your mouth (in more than just the physical way).

We stopped at The Spitfire to kill time. Our server was pleasant and friendly and there was a nice ambience. We ordered a fish platter to share and it was absolutely delicious and reasonably priced. Would recommend The Spitfire.

I was up from the States visiting friends in Windsor and I was taken here for my welcome dinner. The Fish and Chips was very tasty. The staff was friendly and the owner even stopped by to say hello. I would definitely eat here again when back in town.
