This was my first visit since I moved back home. The food was good, the beer I like was on special, and the atmosphere seemed very relaxed. The service was stellar. Check it out.

Stopped in for some quiet conversation via a beer and an appy. Ordered a multi coloured nachos plate and there was certainly enough for two people. Restaurant is on Augusta St., just east of James St. In a multi-restaurant area, close to St. Joseph's Hospital.

Had the club and nachos. Huge serving of nachos with delicious chicken. Club was very good, though really needed the mayo as it was dry. Nachos had ample ingredients and great cheese mix.

Besides being the original pub in the Unique Restaurant Group, our location has the distinction of being the oldest, as well. While the exact construction date is uncertain, it is known that the music professor, R.S. Ambrose, resided here from 1876 till 1891. Along with our beautifully original British Pub atmosphere and decor, the team at The Pheasant Plucker is dedicated to delivering quality ingredients and high level service to all our guests. With original wood plank floors, rough-hewn beams, cozy fireplace, and field-stone walls, our pub exudes classic British pub charm. Come for our fish 'n' chips and stay for a tasty pint.
