stopped in for fish and chips and they were pretty tasty and good price. Typical pub atmosphere, little noisy but could still hear conversation...different levels for seating so depending on number of diners, room for a small group

I really like going here because of the atmosphere but compared to other places of the same I find it pricy. The food is always good but I doubt that you will come out feeling like you got a deal it then sometimes it's more about the company and it's usually friendly.

We were here for lunch. Had the Creamy Potato Soup (soup of the day) and the Borscht and they were both delicious. They came with a small grainy bun which was also good. We as well had the Veggie & Dip platter and I have to say the vegetables were fresh and crisp and the dip was very good. We... More

Stopped in to see how the crowds were. Busy, because the food is cheap and the beer is good. Staff busy running around serving clients probably could have used an extra server. While I've had better pub food the cold beer makes up for it. Lots of stairs in the place so if your mobility challenged you might have to... More

Very comfortable setting for a pub. Traveling solo I felt totally at ease. Great service, beer and an excellent burger with pub fries. Totally relaxing and they do not hurry you through. Another must do in Penticton.

Walk in the door to loud locals at the bar right at the entrance . Trying to be a sports bar with TV screens but the building is multi levels so lacks real sports fan seating. Also if there is a minor then the group is sent upstairs. We saw a family moved and they did not look happy about... More
