I've lived beneath Edignburgh Castle for a year. I've had the real deal. The Dam Pub is very very good. If you like pub fare and Scottish fare, go out of your way to eat here.

That is correct Constance, health regulations do not allow smoking or dogs on the patio. We offer many gluten free options .....breads, pasta, desserts and we prepare custom plates.

A popular family owned Gastropub set in the quaint village of Thornbury, Ontario. We are featured regularly on The Food Network's "You Gotta Eat Here!" Folks come for miles to enjoy Chef Rob Lussier's culinary delights, over 850 whiskies in Stephanie's Whisky Bar, and our impeccable service with seasoned waiters. All this nestled into our circa 1875 house with a welcoming and cozy ambience. Reservations highly recommended.
