There is a new menu with most of the old favs, but a few new items. I had the daily sandwich special. It was very good. Loads of fries and all the condiments you wanted. I was at the bar area, alone, but had good interaction with the bar and wait staff. I never felt "alone" Good atmosphere and freiendly... More

Located just over the bridge in Elora Ontario. There is a good selection of beer's and pub food. The food is very good and at a reasonable cost. The decor could be a little nicer and declutter. The service is very good and friendly. It is not wheelchair accessible . Family friendly Quaint town.

Stopped here with the kids after an afternoon of exploring the Elora Gorge and ziplining. They had something on the menu for everyone - for the kids, who like either burgers or chicken fingers, for the meat lover and for the healthy eater. Their kids menu has reasonable prices for kids meals and the prices are the rest of the... More

Ok, it's fish and chips. Family joke! On the recommendation of other Tripadvisor reviewers, we wanted to have fish and chips here and sit by the window to see the river. Except for a couple of patrons sitting at the bar, we had our choice of any seat in the restaurant. So we sat on high stools at the counter... More

After we ate we just sat and listened to the music and had a few drinks .Very nice way to spend a evening. The group... More

We wanted to sit where we could see the water and Shepherd's has that, although it's from behind closed windows. Still, nice! The food was basic pub fare. It was good. It was also very busy when we were there, so our service was a little slow. It's best for folks who are looking for standard pub fare and it... More

We had a very good meal here. We were made to feel welcome. The beef burger was one of the best I've had. My partner had the curry and was quite impressed by that.

Delicious fresh cut fries, amazing homemade tartar sauce, moist fish with a delicious batter that was the perfect amount. Yum !!! It's a basement pub so it's slightly darker with only a couple window side seats. Very good tho. Yum.
