Not a bad place for a beer and some pub food. The specials are good value. Recommend wing night and fish night

Food is is top drawer. Wednesday and Thursday Chicken Wings at $0.50 per wing and numerous sauces. Friendly staff and tucked in upstairs... More

Wow effect, did not have to drive to Halifax for a great pub ambiance. First time going there and it was on wings nite. Food was tasty, drinks were served as ordered. Chris, our waiter was excellent. He took all our orders for six people with appetizers and drinks without taking notes and all was served without mistakes. Liked the... More

This is an informal pub with surprisingly good food. Don't expect anything gourmet but the choices have never disappointed me. The burger IMHO is as good as you can get anywhere, the fish and chips, and the other sandwich choices all made with good quality ingredients and tasty. This place is a regular go-to destination for after work get togethers... More

If you are going to this pub then get the nightly specials so that you don't feel you have overpaid for standard food. Unfortunately I have had hit and miss, especially with the fish and chips. I expect that they pre-fry the fish and then refry when you order (which is normal) but my last order had one filet that... More

The food is ok, nothing special at all, almost like what I could make myself at home. So don't look forward to it and of the other places to go in Bedford, will choose somewhere else. In saying that, the kids like it so will go there when they are with us.

Have been many times and the food is always good; nothing fancy or special but good basic pub food. Enjoyed the house named burger (rings could have been hotter). Would go back again. Two burgers with rings a small beer and soda $39.
