Ate here while downtown and loved the atmosphere. Fish & chips and good beer on the menu. Delicious poutin as an appetizer. Friends had the Yorkshire pudding and Shepherd's Pie. Had a good relaxing time and rested our weary legs. Excellent service.

Enjoyed our lunch here. Nice, cozy, library like decor ... although the rowdy bunch in the bar watching a Saturday afternoon football game kept it lively! Hubby enjoyed his corned beef sandwich and my fish taco was reasonably good, although the fish was a little...More
