“Best for Pubs”
Reviewed June 4, 2014

It was a beautiful spring day, one of the few we had that one could sit on a patio. Maddy's is on a quiet side street with the outside patio in the front, just so one gets too lonely. We had just finished some hard yardsalin' and needed food and a pint.
The pub was not open as of yet, but the courteous staff let us in and we ordered from a wide choice of quality on tap drinks and the waitress advised us on the menu items. Very happy with the substantial portions and dripping good food. We just had to have another pint while sitting in the sun and on the patio!! The owners were out enjoying the sun as well and we all discussed what to do with the big tree in the middle of the patio,( after the ice storm ravaged it). (Hope they went with the stand-up/high table bar idea) For just an impromptu stop we thoroughly enjoyed Maddy's Pub and will definitely go back!!

“Awesome patio!”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

In the summer it's a great place to sit out on the patio, have some drinks and appetizers. The inside needs a renovation.

“Pub Fare that meets expectations”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

A quaint pub in Bowmanville where the fare is good and tasty and the prices are less than what one would pay in a large city. They have live entertainment on the weekends and the admission is free as is the parking. My recommendation is their home made soups of the day.....DO NOT MISS OUT they are exceptional.

“Nice Pub”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

Quaint pub in the middle of town. Nice atmosphere, good Brit and Irish beer and the limited pub food they have is good. The menu is a little sparse in the pub food category but good in the "non-pub" food style. Good visit, good beer and good food.

“Good Spot”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

We have been visiting this spot for several years now and will keep returning here. Under both the previous and newer management, we feel the place is well run, the servers are experienced, courteous and efficient, and the manager/owner is friendly and frequently on site.

The food selection is decent: burgers, good wings, decent Caesar salad, etc.

Great patio spot out front under the large maple, and cosy seating inside. Can be quite busy on Friday evenings. They have private parking on site for limited number of vehicles, or on street parking is free after 6 p.m.

Friday nights, at least, there is normally decent live music as well.
