We were spending only one night in Magnetawan, so choosing a place for dinner was important to us. Looking at Trip advisor this place became an easy choice. We were not disappointed. It reminds you of an English pub with the decorations & bar. We started with the onion & ale soup, which was steaming hot with a lot of... More

Thank You Huron shoes for another glowing review. The Ale & Onion soup is totally homemade, we make our own beef stock from roasted beef bones then add lots of onions and good British beer into it to finish. We really appreciate you taking the time to tell us if we are doing things right or wrong. Hope to see... More

Friendly service, good food and good selection, at least 4 different meats to choose from on the buffet, reasonably priced. The lay-out of the tables for a group was a bit tight trying to maneuver around but was manageable. Will definitely go back and would recommend for a nice dining experience.

We've been going to Tanners for several years and love the food and atmosphere. The menu has standard pub fare plus some specialty dishes but the food is head and shoulders above anything a short order cook could prepare. Tasty, fresh and generous portions - every time. A chef is at work here and you can taste the difference. The... More

Thank you pickles for your review. Who would have known that Guinness in a cake would taste so good? Your right, a Chef is at work at Tanners, he takes extreme pride in all that he makes.

My wife and I took an old friend for dinner not really knowing what to expect. Food selection is immense and the quality is outstanding. Atmosphere is warm and inviting and the staff are attentive, friendly and very welcoming. Our drinks, appetizers and entrees were delicious and well priced. We'll definitely be back!

Our party of three had dinner here when on vacation up in Magnetawan for a few days, this is a cute little pub with great food, our waitress was wonderful and did a great job.

thank you Harley for coming to Tanners. All food is made from scratch right in our kitchen. Many True English/Irish/Scottish pubs are house like inside and out, not the cookie cutter big chain ones most of us have become accustomed to in Canada.. We like to keep the outside appearance simple and low maintenance. Inside is a different story, anyone... More

A nice place, good food, lots of good menu choices. Quite small, and often full, so reservations likely a good idea.
