The food is OK, the service is OK, the decor is great. I don’t eat red meat so I had the cauliflower steak. Not bad, but certainly not worth the $26 price tag! Drinks quite expensive also. Wouldn’t rush back TBH.

The food was outstanding. Mac and cheese with bacon was a feature and very good. Steak was cooked to perfection and the fries some of the best I’ve had. Sticky toffee pudding delicious. Love the vintage plates. Will be back.

Just as the title states...we didn't eat here, but came for a celebratory cocktail and were impressed with the cozy, rustic atomosphere, the service and the cocktail menu. Definitely would come back here.

I had the bangers and mash evening special. Bangers were good with nice mushroom gravy. No veggies though and such a simple meal for 21$ is really overpriced. I do not agree with the trip advisor price rating.

Loved it. Guest chef - divine food, great atmosphere, thoroughly enjoyable night out. Share plates - bison tortellini wonderful.

A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and
stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of
being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many
plaques that stud the cobbled streets of Gastown tell
the story of its colorful past, giving Vancouver's
history a more lively presence here than anywhere
else. Having been originally founded around a popular
worker's saloon, it's no wonder that today some of
