We visited this fabulous pub yesterday. The waitress was so very helpful answering our queries. She asked us our names which we felt was a lovely personal touch. The beers were superb and the food was so tasty. They even cooked mash potatoes fresh for us. We couldn't have found a better place to eat.

Staying in Barrie, Ontario overnight and found a fab place to eat. We were met at the door by Shannon with a smile and a warm welcome. We had the fish and chips. Delicious. But I think you could pick anything off the menu and not be disappointed. Very eclectic and home made. Great chef. Great service . Order the deep fried Mars bar with ice cream for dessert. You can't stop eating it!
We'll be back!

Only local beers, locally produced produce and meat.
A standard selection of burgers, taco's, fish and chips, as well as daily specials, always something intriguing.

My husband had the Yorkshire Pudding Wrapped Braised Beef. He is not a man who typically uses superlatives and his comment was “This is the BEST meal I have had on this trip!”

I had the Reuben and it was delicious.

I would definitely recommend this restaurant. Great food and Jenna took wonderful care of us. She asked our names and then used them throughout our meal!

Went to this restaurant for drinks, after going to the theatre downtown. The food was very good, delicious gourmet sausages on the charcuterie platter. The ambience is relaxing and fun. Ended up staying quite late playing board games with friends.
They have a nice selection. Recommend this place.
