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.

Very cozy pub located in the basement of a building on main tourist street. The food was varied and above average for a Pub. Soup was exceptional. Service was OK. Warm atmosphere.

We had a great evening enjoying the beer, food and service. An interesting spot. From the outside it looks rather unappealing, but once inside it's a hidden gem. Without doubt worth a visit.

It was a very hot day and this pub was cool and pleasant. Background music not loud. Service was quick and the portions were huge! Doggy bags were allowed, but we polished off our platters. Prices were very reasonable. I would go back for sure, although I am not normally a "pub" person.

Clean, Friendly, Good Food. We had lunch at the pub on Canada Day. I had the Black Bean chipotle wrap. It was so good, came with fries, they were good too. My friend had the chicken fingers with fries. Not just any chicken fingers; the best she had ever had! Two bottles of beer, and two coffees. Very good. The... More

We were here on the May long weekend, so granted, it's a busy weekend. But it seemed as though they only had 1 server for the whole place! The poor guy seemed to be having a really hard time keeping up with everything. Aside from that, the food was great - I had the avocado portobello wrap. The prices were... More

If you like pub food and good draft beer this is the place for you. A lot of British pub fare and great atmosphere . Food is reasonably priced as is the beer and both are tasty.

I used to work in Elora and would frequent here often. Since we were in town we decided to stop in for lunch. There were only a handful of people in the restaurant which was surprising. The food was as good and we both enjoyed our meals but we noticed the place could use a really good clean and a... More
