Review of Brassie Pub

Ranked #7 of 59 Restaurants in Ancaster
More restaurant details
Restaurant details
Dining options: Late Night, Breakfast, Reservations
Description: Enjoy the fun, the flavour and the familiarity of Britain’s finest public houses in the heart of Olde Ancaster. A place where friends gather to kick back on weekdays…and meet again to wine, dine and dance away their weekends. Temp your palette with one of the Brassie’s classic British pub favourites, teamed with a cool and refreshing draught from the Brassie’s impressive selection of imported and domestic taps.

“Inconsistent”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Chief (only) reason we have dinner here is that it is close to home. Service cheery enough but not terribly efficient. Food is disappointing in that you might have a great fish and chip plate one visit, and the next time looking forward to it, and it comes as greasy and ill prepared. Have had the same experience with other choices. Only choice that works the same every time is fajitas, and they're not that great! So, the atmosphere is properly pub for the decor, but the vibe is not necessarily the friendliest.

“Been here many times and will be here many more”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

This is a great place for a casual dinner or just for a drink after work. The Nacho's are priced for one person but feed at least 2 so plan on sharing. We have tried most everything on this menu and have never been disappointed. They are quick if you need them to be or will let you sit and enjoy your time out. Great British Pub atmosphere, always a crowd at the bar. Highly recommend this place.

“A nice enough pub but not like "Cheers"”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

This is a nice enough pub with pub grub. I had the beer battered fish and chips with a half pint of draft beer, and a house salad to begin with. The service was friendly enough without being obtrusive. I liked the blues music playing that day.

The restaurant is in a fairly nondescript shopping mall and so you wouldn't go there for the atmosphere. You'd go there if you were hungry and need a bite. Its a regular sort of place.

“Ok for drinks”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

It's an ok place to stop for a drink or two but not if you want to have a nice dinner. Too small for the bands and karaoke on the weekends, not enough t.v.'s to watch the game and not what I would consider a pub.
