The perfect "cheers" experience. The jinglepot pub has been around for over 25 years. A Classic pub, not high end with gourmet entrees. More like hearty meals, big portions, and awesome pub grub! Great friendly service and Now with the restaurant you can bring in kids, still have a drink, and share the same menu. Love it!

We were there on a Sunday for lunch with a social group of about 50 people. They were expecting us and handled the group well. I especially appreciated that the fish and chips did not come with salt on the fries (most restaurants overdo the salt and ruin the meal). Good coleslaw too. Our group was handled well with the available staff.

It was a cool day and we'd worked hard in the dragon boat before arriving for brunch.
It was inexpensive.
The service was average.
The food was less than average.
I won't be back

The 1/2 eggs benny for breakfast is a steal!! Soooo yummy... shrimp smothered in hollandaise and all decked out with crisp hash browns ...for 5 and a half bucks! Wow! Services was great. It's a lovely, cozy place. I'm going back.

We brought our out of town guests here for supper...they had been to this pub years ago and quite enjoyed the halibut burgers...i always have bad luck when i go to this pub but willing to try again...it was somewhat busy but as usual the service was crappy...our youngish server was more interested in attending the tables of some young men then helping us...too bad cause i am pretty sure we are good tippers!! once we got our beverages and food order in we waited an eternity for our very expensive meal...our halibut burger now costs $16.00...okay, fish prices have gone up but what really choked us was this wasn't even fresh halibut...FROZEN..i had a feeling it was cause the burger smelled very fishy and a very pathetic piece as well...my friend couldn't even eat hers....then there was the veal cutlet dinner...cold potatoes..over cooked mushy vegetables...very bland...i can say without a doubt this is our last trip to this pub!! thank goodness there are many other pubs who put out terrific meals at a decent price and servers who aren't consumed on who will provide the best tip....sad....very sad.
