This is a good place to go for food and beer. They have "pub grub", fried food, but they also have healthier food like turkey wraps. The beer is very good and they offer 10 oz servings so you don't have to have a whole pint if you don't want to. The place is usually full and they have live music a few nights a week.

We actually went to the 'other' pub in Cloverdale before we ended up here after walking out of the first one. (Will review it next!) In retrospect, it was a smart move. This spot was a little loud, but only because it was full of happy customers. And rightly so. The server was very friendly and attentive, even though it seemed she was the only waitress. She was literally running. I had the fish tacos and they may have been the best I've ever had. Lots of cod, perfectly cooked and just the right amount of veggies, including peppers and onions. The salsa that came on the side was delish. Hubby had their fried chicken BLT. It was huge, but he finished it off along with two of the house-crafted beers. Later he kind of wished he'd stayed with just one beer, as he was SO full, but no regrets. They have picnic tables outside, but it also served as a smoking section, so avoid that if you object to smoke. Just a block from the main drag in the quaint historic section of Cloverdale, Ruth McGowan's is a sure bet!

Good food, good beer! Easy to get to and a good choice of tasty treats! The seating was comfortable in a relaxed atmosphere. So good we went back twice on our 4 day trip!

Loved the Irish Stout. Great friendly service from chatty bar staff. Got food to take away and it was good, especially when washed down with a bottle of Vino.
