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.

The decor, food and people are so unique and authentic all at the same time! Love the stools up by the window. We have been here for many meals!!! But had to pick one for the criteria below. LOVE the Dinner and a Movie option. $22/person gets you a fantastic dinner and a movie across the street at the quant... More

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

The drinks were good and enjoyable overlooking the river. The chicken Caesar wrap was surprisingly delicious the only let down was we went to order dessert and asked for there chocolate brownie like dessert however they said they didn't have it and suggested the carrot cake. I asked if it has raisins they promised no and even asked the chef.... More

We were driving through Elora and decided to stop for lunch to check out the pub. We loved the atmosphere, service was great. My husband absolutely LOVED his shepherd's pie and loved that it had haggis in it. Our server was great! Very attentive. We loved the town of Elora and will definitely be back.

I was in Elora to have lunch at another place which I discovered to be closed so I decided to try this place. On opening the door I found you had to go down as set of stairs to the basement. The decor could probably use a refresh but it is a pub. I ordered the Octoberfest sausage and was... More
