Trivia night last year was great, we went a couple of times and it was packed both times. No idea why they don't have it this year, bad move in my opinion. Would have gone and spent money, now we'll go somewhere else.

Food was fine, atmosphere was fine etc. but sooooooo slow with service and arrival of food. If you're hungry do not go here.

Good beer list but after that ... Maybe it's a good place to go for music? The food is nothing to get excited about. Pretty sure their burgers come frozen from a box. Other typical pub fare but none of the dishes the four of us ordered were memorable. The atmosphere is neat - it's a very old hotel but... More

Well priced beer in a very friendly hotel located in the centre of Minden. Always make the effort to call in when in Canada and look forward to visiting in a few week’s time.

Family of four happened to be passing through Minden at lunchtime so we stopped here. Surroundings and the place itself were fine but the problems started when we were waiting for our food order to be taken. We waited and waited and eventually decided to just seek out the wait staff at the bar and order our meals. We also... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night(weekend) stay. There are 6 rooms, all cozy, clean and modern with a flair of country charm. Our lovely room had a very nice view of the... More

A local hostelry since 1865, they know a thing or two about feeding and watering patrons. Small dining room offers a slightly more refined experience, we typically go to the larger pub side. Same menu, different atmosphere. Drink selection is pretty good, many of the usual poor choices on tap, plus a fair few local Ontario brews. Prices are very... More
