“Good Neighbourhood Bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2014

Hidden away in a mixed industrial area just outside of Glen Abbey, this English-style bar has been around for many years. Has gone through a few owner changes through the years, most recently a year or so ago.
Same décor and seats since opening, the menu has gone through a few changes. Some live groups on weekends and drink and food specials on certain nights (including Thursday wings night). Food quality and service have gotten better since ownership change while prices have stayed the same. Never a problem getting in and always a friendly face.
Will go back and you should too.

“Ths Pub Has Been Around For Years”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2013

This place has been around for years and much hasn't changed about it. Beer, spirits and food are fine but hasn't changed this much as well. Never reallly that busy and service is satisfactory. Have never had a bad experience here over the years.

“Well, you can always get in...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013

We've been going here for years, mainly because we can get 4-6 couples in on a Friday night, all the good places are full. We had hoped new owners last year would help, but not much has changed. One of their cooks is very good, but if he's not on, watch out. Waitresses can be OK, obsequious or diffident, you never know. Flatbreads pretty good, steak salad can be very good, wine is expensive, drinks are 1/2 or 3/4 oz at best. Bathrooms and tables/chairs need work. Bar selection is poor.

“Regulars ruining the joint”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2012

Food is good, service too but what's with the regulars going in and out of the kitchen? They drink, they use the bathroom then they go into the kitchen on their own accord! How healthy is that? The icing on the cake is when you leave there they are smoking right at the entrance. Nice to smell that crap for dessert! You can do better Abby arms, don't fall into the abyss and let the regulars sink you
