“Looked good but was a bit lacking”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

Guess I expected more from a "Taphouse". Selection of brews was ok. Food was "ok". Cold rainy day and soup was tepid. Burger was ok - making up for flavour with volume. Service was a bit distant in attitude. Guess I expected more from all the good reviews.

“Good sports bar”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

Liked the location, ambiance and wings!! Good service and location. I went with a group - no trouble being seated together. The server we had was covering much of the bar herself and did a great job. Menu is well priced.

“A good place to meet freinds”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

This is a good place to meet friends and colleges at. I have been going here since 1978 when it was call the Rose and Crown (a totally different story).

It’s large busy and a lot of fun. If I am correct, it might not be around for a long time due to Telus’ redevelopment of the land. However, it might be added into those plans.

“Great Pub!”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

We went in for drinks and snacks before heading to a concert. This place is much bigger than it looks! We sat downstairs but it was fine - fun atmosphere and great service. The chicken wings were excellent! We would definitely go back.
