I am not a big fan of pub food especially in pseudo-English settings. With a friend/colleague I was induced to eat here and pleasantly surprised by the choice and quality, and quantity was OK too. With a beer this made for a nice evening meal.

The patio is an excellent spot to grab a big breakfast. Portions were big and the staff were friendly.

Had two large family meals here during our recent visit to Ottawa. Busy pub with a lively atmosphere. Enormous range of beers. I had Salmon on the first visit which was lovely and fish and chips on the second which was delicious. Highly recommend.

This pub is a great place for food and drink. The beer selection is pretty good. Go on Sunday for dinner, the prime rib special is definitely worth it. Good staff.
