“Great Gastropub”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

We recently enjoyed a delicious dining experience at the Wellington Gastropub. Reservations are a must as the place is quite small but the atmosphere was cosy and warm and the service friendly and attentive. My husband loved his chicken liver mousse and my tomato goat cheese tart was fabulous. Our mains were equally good and the selection of beers and wines are interesting and varied. The menu changes almost daily so that everything is seasonal and fresh. Definitely worth the experience!

“First time dining here - Fabulous!”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

First of all, Edwin was our waiter and he was amazing, he was everything a passionate diner could want. You can tell someone is proud of what they are serving when they can explain to you in great detail the wines, meals, desserts etc.

My boyfriend and I loved our experience and the food was beyond fabulous. We had perfectly cooked scallops and duck respectively, and enjoyed some very tasty ice creams for dessert.

Anyone considering whether to visit this restaurant or not should rest their case. Go, now!

“Very Good Varied But Slightly Limited Menu”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

Although there wasn't a huge food selection on the menu, what they do have is very good.
Good food and good variety in beer, & tasty dessert made for a very good meal.
This time I remembered to take a picture of the menu to remember what we ate!

For the three of us, our table had the pork, beef, & salmon as per attached menu.
Dessert was the Blueberry Almond cake.
We all shared a bit of each others meal and it wasn't possible to pick a definite best selection.
If you have a chance for lunch or supper at this restaurant, don't miss it.
The only negative is it does get quite loud at times.

“Disappointing food, everything else good”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

A couple of people recommended the Gastropub and we reserved a table the day before on a weekend which was surprising. As others have mentioned, the tables are close together and the beer and wine selections are very good. The food was a big disappointment-- bland, tasteless chowder and tough steak with uninspired mash and carrots that were too hard to fork. The server and manager were very apologetic and offered to replace my steak. Our neighbors (who were now our friends due to their proximity) said they have always liked the food so perhaps we were unlucky?
