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

We had wonderful food , everyone had a different dish and all raved about it. And to top off the evening there were people playing old Irish and Scottish music on all different instruments . 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.

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.

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
