Attending the Fire and Ice festival in Bracebridge and we (6 adults 3 kids) were asked to leave because the children couldn't be in there. Pretty disappointing at 2 in the afternoon

I made the mistake one day to try this pub for a lunch meal and a beer. Not a good choice. The service was very slow (not caring to give you a menu) and the food was not what you would want to repeat. The beer was beer.

Have enjoyed this place on evening solo visits after work - friendly staff, good sports bar with screens, and, until recently, very good food. Not so much with the new, reduced menu. Most recent visit had the veal parm sandwich with fries - disappointing, as in bland and boring. Have had better at Boston Pizza. Also, the regulars act like... More

Chef came out to say hello. She did a good job with the food. Nice pubby atmosphere, but needs more on the walls. Brand new and very clean.

Went here for dinner on Canada Day. I had the chicken sandwich and my boyfriend had the burger. The food was delicious! And it was so hot we had to wait a few minutes before eating. I've never had that happen before! Would definitely come back again.

First be advised that this pub only opens at 4pm so it is a supper venue. The style is traditional British with a small bar area and both bench and table seating. The mahogany decor makes it generally dark, but the walls are filled with neat memorabilia. We ordered chicken pot pie and beef filled Yorkshire pudding. Along with the... More

Horrible service, wouldn't recommend it. Didn't get a chance to try the food but the customer service was below satisfactory. To bad.

After reading many reviews, I was a bit skeptical on visiting here, but my man wanted to try, and I'm very glad we did!! Full of friendly locals, the server/bartender was very nice and attentive. The food was delicious!! I would definitely recommend this joint to anyone who asked where a good place to eat in the area is.

Dropped in for dinner. Its a pub. They have a good selection of draft beer including Guiness at cellar temperature. The Governor is the owner and friendly chap. I had the lemon haddock with roasted potatoes and veg. My wife the steak with potatoes and veg. The fish was cooked but still moist. Very tender. The steak tasty.
