Description: A popular family owned Gastropub set in the quaint village of Thornbury, Ontario. We are featured regularly on The Food Network's "You Gotta Eat Here!" Folks come for miles to enjoy Red Seal Chef Suzette Gerry's culinary delights, over 665 whiskies in Stephanie's Whisky Bar, and our impeccable service with seasoned waiters. All this nestled into our circa 1875 house with a welcoming and cozy ambience. Reservations highly recommended. YES when you see that little yellow airplane pulling a banner saying THEDAMPUB.CA-ALL DESSERTS HOMEMADE ...... that is us!

“Overall Great!”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

Being a local to Thornbury for over 20 years, I've eaten at a lot of the restaurants that have come and gone in our little town. The Dam Pub is definitely a favourite in our household! Great food, deals almost everyday of the week and live music, I would recommend it to anyone driving through (or anyone locals who haven't tried it out yet). I've had almost everything on the dinner main menu and I am never disappointed! The beef live is my personal favourite, always cooked right!

“If you like whiskey, they have over 700 brans to choose from”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

The theme at this pub is Scottish. It was reviewed on "You Gotta eat Here". The Thai coconut mussels are great. Yes, you can order haggis, bangers and mash, shepherd pie, steak and kidney pie, or beef liver.

“Great Food Great Service”
Reviewed July 19, 2014 via mobile

Had the pan seared white fish with spinach salad and the sloppy haggis. The salad was awesome and the haggis was good though a bit too rich. Courtney was our server and was friendly and prompt. Will definitely go back.

“Great Time at the Dam Pub”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

Visited the Dam Pub with my family and grandchildren. We enjoyed the atmosphere and food. The kids loved their chicken wings and Bruce the bartender made two special Shirley Temple drinks for them. The staff and service was excellent.
