One of the older pubs downtown Guelph that has never changed ownership yet still provides quality and consistent service to customers. Great curry, chips and other pub fare typical of what you'd expect from a British pub. They're fairly priced and provide a good value...More

Onion bhaji was very tasty. Large portions for our entrees that were quickly prepared and delicious. As advertised, their draught beers were quite chilly when served, just as I prefer. The decor was a little dated but the environment was warm and inviting. A definite...More

Excellent indian food can be had here. However the decor and the menu are overdue for an update. Also they have great french fries.

We go regularly for drinks with friends and have food sometimes. They offer an OK selection of Indian and Pub menu items. Service is good and they have a nice selection of beers on tap.

The Penny Whistle certainly reminded me if many British pubs, right down to their Indian food offerings on the menu and the football (i.e. Soccer) game on the television. We went with the Indian offerings. The fries with a curry sauce were great. The aloo...More
