Was here 2 weeks ago with a friend and was awesome. Had wings and ribs. I also tried a beer that I have been longing to try. Back Hand of God. So good and flavourful.

This is a pub and we were there to have a late evening dessert as Branches in the Atrium was closed. The server was very nice, delivered our dessert and after dinner drinks with a smile. Who would have known that the pub would have access to the dessert menu in the hotel restaurant? It was delicious and hit the... More

After a day of driving & unpacking from camping, we were tired and just needed some food. Decided to go here, since pub is usually fast & good. Food was quite good, I have to do GF, there were about three selections for me, the one I chose is popular and was yummy. Crispy beef & jasmine rice, it wasn't... More

This sports bar is usually busy and active. Lots of big screen TVs. Service bit slow at times but pub food OK.

The coffee is pretty decent, for a pub :-) Good reange of pub foods on the menu, and the house salad promises to be pretty 'gourmet'... YEP! Very nice chef here. And I must say that the Monday night five dollar (!!!) Cheeseburger Special was MAGNIFICENT. Good work, Team Checkers!

The food was good. Not excellent but good. But what made this place lose points in my eyes was the service. We waited over 20 minutes to order.. food took another 40 minutes.. we asked for a desert menu which took another 25 minutes just to get to order then we waited nearly 20 minutes for a slice of cheesecake.....
