We were in town for the first night before a bell festival. There were 7 of us. The staff was very accommodating and offered separate checks for those who requested it. Food was very fresh and great choices from mama's cooking to pheasant. Would have loved to go back but time didn't allow it on this trip.

I knew The Governor's Pub was going to be a good experience as soon as I smelled the food in the air. We were a party of 8, 5 adults and 3 children for dinner. The adults and children were seated separately and it worked out. We had a variety of dishes from steak to salads, Kids meals and an... More

Nice little bar, tables in bar area, large glass windows to look out, fire place thing, dining area off to the side. The menu is interesting, good stuff. I had the Scotch Eggs and she had the Pierogi- a real grandma's recipe too! Service was excellent.

I have eaten here a couple times, first just to give them another shot, second because it was such an excellent meal I had to make sure it wasn't a fluke. No, it's legitimately one of the best restaurants in Bellefonte, of not THE best with the Gamble Mill being closed. I would recommend this place for sure.

First time, a great experience. Hamburger, perfect medium rare, great taste. Fries seasoned with rosemary, different, delicious. Shared an appetizer of pirogies with sauerkraut and potato filling topped with browned onions. Best I've had since I was a child when my mom made them. Others had corned beef and Ahi Tuna sandwiches and raved about them. Will definitely go again,... More

Opening a business in the Bellefonte area and working my way around the local eating establishments. The Governor's Pub is on that list. The deep-fried portabellas are a wonderful addition to any meal. Good place to eat.

Great burgers, delicious herbed fries and creative cocktails. Cosy fireplace and excellent service. The only downside was a very loud table of screaming teens in the next room. The menu has a wide variety of entrees, from casual pub fare to complete dinners. Overall, a very good place I will definitely return to when in the area.
