This location recently made some changes to its menu. some new items. Also they have reduced the size of existing item such as fish and chips but have left the price the same. Many other items are now much smaller. Even the portion of fries or salad with your meal is smaller but prices like i said remain the same.... More

Although in a good location parking can be difficult. Fish and chip portions were smaller than expected and a bit greasy. This is very much a sports bar relying on short skirted wait staff rather than quality fare.

Three of us chose different main courses. Two were good, the Bangers and Mash were very delicious, the pan fried Cod was not tasty although the accompaniments were delicious. I had fish & chips, but the fish was not completely cooked, with sticky batter close to the fish, and the cod was bland, tasteless. The portion was quite hearty, but... More

I have visited the Heart&Crown in several different locations throughout Ottawa. This location on Preston St, is always buzzing, with a good crowd and live music. Nice selection of beers and the pub grub is quite satisfying too

We had some time waiting for a friend to get home, so we walked over to the Heart & Crown for a drink or two, chat and watch some of the NFL games. What a great spot to relax and enjoy a cold one. It wasn't very busy, it was quiet enough for good conversation, and there were lots of... More

We were there for lunch and had their nachos, fish & chips, buffalo chicken tenders, beef stew and a chicken wrap with chowder. They were all very tasty. I love the cozy and relax feel of this pub.

good food (spicy chicken curry was excellent with just enough heat) but we were sitting at the bar and there was a peculiar and unpleasant odor when the dishwasher ran. But otherwise, good service.

Always clean and we'll run. Have been a few times recently and the other day had lunch with an Ottawa friend and we had a good time. Beer choice excellent and menu a bit above most pubs. I had a lunch special, crispy chicken wrap with Caesar salad and my friend had a regular burger. We both enjoyed our lunch

First time there. We waited 10 minutes for a table near the band but that wasn't a problem as that was our choice. The Maître D was very pleasant and attentive and even the other wait staff kept on eye on us. We were very well taken care of. The place was very busy all night long but we were... More
