A fantastic British Pub located in the heart of Waterdown! Has been around for decades, first as a hotel and now as a restaurant. Be sure to eat here!

We love coming to the Coach - Ross and his staff are awesome !!! The décor has not changed for years but that's ok , the food is wonderful and the Beer selection is great. We recommend the fish and chips or the buffalo chicken fingers .

Love the patio in the summer and cozy dining room in the winter. Always great and friendly service and the fish n chips is the best in town. I even made a suggestion for a menu item and it ended up on their seasonal specials. A must try!

Just on a whim we headed out on a Tuesday night. The place was quite busy but we were greeted quickly and warmly. We were seated immediately. We ordered the good old fish and chips and the cajun fish and chips. Both meals came out quickly. Much to my surprise the cajun order was not breaded but seasoned and fried.... More

Four of us went to the Royal Coachman pub in Watertown Ontario for New Year's eve, 'again'. I don't know how many years we've been doing this so I'll just say many. Reservations of course are required, for a large party, the earlier you book the better. The menu for New Year's eve is restricted to one page as opposed... More

I met a business colleague in Waterdown for lunch the other day and she suggested we go to The Royal Coachman. This is a nice English Pub style place and it looks like it has been here forever. I am not a beer drinker but they do seem to have quite a selection. The food wasn't bad either, I didn't... More

We stopped by for lunch as we felt like pub grub. We live in Waterdown but have not been here in years. We discovered the burgers were on special the day we went. The price was right so that is what we had and shared some onion rings. I started with a pint of Kilkenny which was on tap. We... More

Good food, good prices, Wish they would switch to the type of French fries they used to have. Reservation recommended

We have tried many items on the menu and are never disappointed. The food quality and presentation is consistently excellent and far surpasses our expectation for an in-town pub. The patio is lots of fun in the summer. Note that this restaurant is in Waterdown, ON (and not Hamilton as noted on the listing).
