The pub/sports bar is actually a comfortable restaurant/bar. Good atmosphere for an easy range of ages. It's a good adjunct to the newly renovated hotel.

Great service and a really terrific selection of appy’s and mains. Everything was delicious. Love the Blue Cheese Burger. We’ll be back!

We had a family lunch here. The food was fabulous! The server was great! Everyone enjoyed their meal. The special was a grilled cheese with ham, bacon, onions and tomatoes - recommend it!

Chips were cremated in the oven. The staff kindly offered to replace the order. The second order looked good but it turned out to be worse. The burned chips were just buried under cheese and there were no jalepenos. For $25 I'd expect more. Service...was good. Food was appalling. Last time we go there.More

This pub has a real “olde publican house” feel to it...there’s even a covered, heated spot outside, attached to the building, for the smokers in your group!! The food was good and the staff were great!

Never been disappointed by a meal here. The whole place has recently been updated and the food continues to be fast and of good quality for the price. Nice atmosphere, we often stop by after a hike.

We were six for dinner tonight. It was taco Tuesday. 3 had tacos ( each got 3 for $10 ). Two had beef and one fish. I had a burger with bacon. Another had a chicken burger...everyone’s dinners were very good. The service was also...very food. The beer was nice and cold...would definitely recommend this place.More

Wow what a surprise. This was all of our first time going. A+++++ Benny's was perfect. Price was on par and service was wonderful never had an empty cup of coffee. 😁 This will be my new breakfast spot. Cheers for doing such a great...job all the way around. Oh and I should mention that the place was clean and the tables were not sticky and the chairs were comfortable. YayMore
