We were planning to go Gabrielle downtown but it was packed and noisy. For an alternative we wend to the pub restaurant on Jingle Pot.Rd Ample parking not to busy. We got our drinks right away.

Worst food I have ever had. Poor service. We asked for the price on something and the waitress added it to our order without telling us the price! Waitress would leave before we could finish our sentence, and we'd have to practically yell to have her come back. It wasn't busy. Food was disgusting. We won't be back.

I have been a few times to this pub and what brings me back is the food. Yes it is typical pub fare, but they do a decent job and don't try anything fancy with it. Wings and potato skins are quite good. beers selection is decent as well. My husband's hockey team come here once in a while and... More

They are very inconsistent. Sometimes the food is good and other times it's bad. Had the beef dip a couple times. The portion of beef was so cheap. We asked for extra beef the second time and they charged us 4 extra dollars for what would have been a normal size portion at any other restaurant. Horrible staff. Very rude.... More

For a devilled ham clubhouse sandwich,it was good. Better than expected. The multigrain bread was soft and mosit and the other ingredients fresh. Served with potato soup or Italian tomato. Ill go back as the food served at the other tables (burgers etc) looked good and big portions. Staff were friendly and prompt.

The regular waitress is "Beth". No matter how busy she always stops by to check how things are going and if we need anything. Brings coffee refills without having to ask. Absolutely some of the best service ever received in any Pub. In addition, the food (Breakfast) is excellent - not at all greasy. Primarily I go to this place... More

As a former chef I can tell that the cook at Jingle pot pub has experience and some skills but the food is very inconsistent and the front of house staff are rude and ignorant. I called in an order for pick up and the girl didn't even ask my name. I told her just as she was about to... More
