Nice booths, quaint old world charm, good service, excellent food. Far from downtown, but worth the trip, if you're out of ideas. Had the seafood medley: was just ok, and partner had moose burger: fine.

The food arrived cold and was very greasy and tasteless. The coffee was so terrible I couldn't drink it.

Considering the number of patrons, the service appeared to be really slow. It was over 40 minutes with only 4 tables occupied including ours. Surprised me that coffee is not included with breakfast. Food was good.

This location is a bit away from downtown; but easy to reach in a few minutes. It also features function rooms for weddings etc, and a hotel/motel component behind the main building.

The meal was served at the bar as I dine alone when traveling. Very attentive service; a very good selection of bottled and draft beers, and a real nice Cod entree for a reasonable price,(Canadian reasonable). Dining room ambiance was very nice; and faithful to British decor.

Nothing not to like ! Worth a visit.

The Guvnor Pub has OK food in a very good English pub atmosphere.

This is pub food and not fine dining, so set your expectations accordingly. The prime rib special was a great price, but the meat was a little overdone and the yorkshire pudding was doughy instead of flakey.

The service was great and the servers were very friendly.
