Don't come to the Pearson Pub looking for a gastronomical experience. There is an expansive menu offering traditional pub fare and are also a few surprises including some not bad specials. I enjoyed the chicken curry - nice and spicy but far too much rice and not enough chicken. My wife had the wrap - the portion was enormous but it lacked much taste with the chicken being very bland. Prices are reasonable and the beer selection OK. The lunch time specials are very reasonably priced including a $5.00 hamburger.

Not the best pub in town.. but always have good bands on the weekend.. Food ok... not gourmet but acceptable. Staff ok.. usually friendly. My main complaint is that it is dated.. and feels like it needs a good cleaning.. tables/wood/carpet... seems to have alot of residue...on things... but we continue to go for the great bands.

If you are looking for a great selection of wings, karaoke, and awesome staff all in one place, this is it. The large heritage house turned restaurant has a very inviting atmosphere. It's a nice place to meet real people.

The Pearson is known for the free soup which is available on a daily basis.
Large comfy chairs are a nice touch.

But I think what keeps me there is the 50 types of wings and 2 for 1 nights

This is a place we go regularly for chicken wings...especially on half-price and two for one nights.

Very unusual in that they offer an ongoing pot of home made soup for those ordering food. My wife likes soup and so she has regularly tried the various types of soup on offer. There is of course only one type of free soup available at any time.

The wings are good, the beer is cold, and like many pubs there are daily specials for both food and beverages.

We usually go with friends to split a jug and the 1/2 price or 2 for 1 wings.

It is worth trying in out view.
