Food quality ends being above what you might expect for the price. For a little "pub", the menu has always surprised me in terms of quality and creativity, and the price never feels like too much for what you get. The specials don't always hit the mark though; twice we have eaten and one of our group ordered one of the daily specials and both times it did not receive good reviews.

Attentive friendly service. Good selection of beers and wines. Food was not cheap but well prepared. Not your average pub fare. There is an upscale menu choice.

Great atmosphere. It was packed on a Friday after work and therefore quite loud. As the place emptied a bit , it became easier to have conversations at the table. Good food and good service.

Very average, run of thee mill eatery trying to be more special than its food, or atmosphere implies.

Had a chicken club that was dry and a side ceasar that had no bacon and very few croutons and an unremarkable dressing.

Meh...
Try the Thai House on Sydenham instead

So let me put this review in context. I was at the Red House shortly after they opened and it was excellent, went back last night with some friends for a brew and good food, and what a disappointment. I had a tasty and for starters had the sausage and cheese plate, none of which is made in house and it was all delicious. I had the vegetable soup and pulled pork for main course. The soup was tasteless the chef had forgotten to add salt , the pulled pork was a bare pass sorry guys i've done better in my own slow cooker. These choices to me are easy staples in any home and the reason people eat in your restaurant is because you should knock these out of the park.. i should have been able to walk away with a full belly , saying how its the best i've ever had, and it wasn't .....not even close. Sorry you don't even get a pass from me on this one!
