The food here is actually quite good and the staff quite friendly. This is not a place with standard pub fare but serves tasty entrees.

We thought we might come for dinner here but to be honest, the smell of the place was rather off putting. A really good carpet cleaning would greatly help this place out. In some places it was so filthy that the pattern of the carpet was unrecognizable, and really, the smell from it was very... distracting. Due to that we... More

We've been here before and returned for the Curry Chicken because it was so good and we heard great things about it. The view is pretty nice, its generally quiet at dinner or late lunch times, our server was pretty friendly. We ordered Pakora to start which was simple but delicious and we'd order it again. Coffee was watered down... More

Visit started out with being served a half pint of flat beer. While I wasn't charged for it it would have been best poured down the sink. We ordered the pakora appy and 2 entrees. The appy was forgotten about and the entrees came first. We were asked if we still wanted the pakoras and we said yes. The server... More

Located in West Quesnel atop the hill with great views of the Fraser River. Lots of parking available all around the building. We stopped in to the pub for lunch. Draft beer selections were rather limited with 2 or 3 taps of mass produced stuff, Guinness, but only 1 tap from the local brewery. The menu is typical pub food,... More

Went here for a business Xmas party. Server was great but it would have been nice if she had some help so we could all eat the food at the same time. Some people where finished by the time others got their food. I had a pasta dish that was delicious but some people where not fond of their meal.... More

Not great. Slow service. Food was sub par. Stop here from. Time to time and it's usually Decent but this time not good at all. Ordered burger with mushrooms, which were drenched in garlic. Couldn't taste anything else. Salad was not good, the lettuce was all rusty. You should never ever cut lettuce with a knife! Disgusting. I won't go... More

Good pub. The food was OK, but just pub food which was what we really wanted. The barmaid was more than helpful and arranged a table on the outside patio as it was a warm night, even though the patio was closed due to lack of clients on a Monday evening

Great view of the Fraser River and downtown Quesnel. Service was prompt, friendly and always ensured we had everything we needed. Food was delicious and servings large. All 4 of us had different meals and all were excellent. Prices very reasonable.
