Had the fish & chips which I enjoyed, the fries were nicely seasoned. Friend had Cajun chicken burger which was proclaimed as "excellent." Is a lively place being on campus, even at 5pm on a Saturday. Service could have been a bit better, as we were shown to a table and then promptly forgotten.

This is a good place to go after a game at war memorial. It gets busy and hopefully there is enough staff. When I was there they could have used another waitress. The decor is nice and it has 3areas that spreads out the crowd so that was nice. I didn't eat there but what I saw looked good. Enjoy.

I felt I was profiled as I came in my the hostess & put in the corner of the establishment where I can see the kitchen & see off duty staff at the bar. Made me feel like I was a person off the street. I'm new to Vancouver. The food I ordered was basic- a soup & ceasar salad... More

Wide selection of Irish brews, surprisingly reasonably priced, decent atmosphere. Would certainly recommend if you want a cozy Irish/British pub.

The food is okay. You go to this restaurant for the decor, sunny days and to meet your friends. The university does not really have a lot of restaurants which means there is no real competition. Also, I find the service slow but then again I am generally not in a rush as I am meeting my friends.

We had a great family meal. Good variety on the menu, with my favorite beer on tap. A true Irish style pub with a mix of customers so all felt welcome. We were there mid-day so it was not rowdy at all for a Uni pub. Happy to go back!!

We went there when we toured UBC. The food was average pub food, but the server brought everything out at once, so our entrees got cold. However, the bread pudding and the sticky toffee pudding were exceptional and they had a good selection of beers and ciders. Not sure we would go back except for the desserts.

Stopped by the pub for a couple beers and some dry ribs. I have to say that the beer selection is surprisingly small. They were even out of basic items we asked for like Budweiser. It took a very long time to get the one menu item we asked for and we had to remind them we had ordered it.... More
