“What a Pub Should Be”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

Outstanding service. Server recommended craft beers were excellent. Would take a week to try all the different beers available ( if you want to enjoy and remember). Food was good, probably consider it very good for a pub. Decor and atmosphere make it required stop if you are in Fredericton.

“Fun with Friends”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2012

So many selections of beer, and a great place to take people from out of town. Local brews are always a hit, and the menu has a wide selection as well for munchies or full meals. I don't always have a best of service here, but it's always a fun spot!

“Excellent beer options- recommended for beer connoisseurs”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2012

This is one of the few venues in the province where you can get beer not sold at NB liquor. Well over a 100 beer choices if not closer to 200. Many wine selections and cocktails as well. Beautiful inside location with booths ,tables , and bar service. The food is done by a local chef and good local ingredients are used. The food is thoughtful with out being over thought or over worked. The staff is very knowledgeable. Service not super quick , but not overly slow.Decent patio outside that seats about 80. The inside part of the restaurant is much larger and could probably accommodate a fairly large group.Overall an excellent experience.

“Wish I had more time here!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2012

What a beer selection! Lots of great local and craft beers, and my favorite from Quebec, Raftman. They also has drinks and food. The staff was friendly and professional. We asked our server lots of questions because this was our first stop in town. The space was beautiful - large, high ceilings, lots of wood. There is outdoor seating, too. Definitely my first stop if I'm ever in Fredericton again.
