It was our first time visiting this place. Decent menu however some items were not available without a wait. Chicken wings were not hot, Luke warm at best. Prime rib was decent but for a 10 oz, on the fatty side. Sides were decent portions...and seasoned well. Pool tables were not functioning properly - one was broken and the other placed so close to sitting customers, it was useless…More

Service was good. Food was terrible. Washrooms were filthy. I am truly baffled by all of the great reviews.

I ordered a beer, the glass was chipped & I got attitude from the bartender. My burger/fries arrived. Fries were cold, I informed the waiter & 15 minutes later he replaced them. By this time I had consumed the burger. Never again!

Steph is the best server in Hamilton. He’s fast, efficient, keeps the bar clean and tidy with a great attitude. The beer specials are good as there is a variety of brands offered. The wings are award winning and the surf and turf deal in...October is amazing. It is the best pub in Hamilton bar none, pun intended.More

One of our regular favourites. Was very busy. My girlfriend has always liked the smoked wings. They have gone downhill. She asked for hot sauce on the side. They were coated. She had them replaced. & the wings were plain & roasted. Still not smoked....We complained again. They took them and took only 20% off her meal after she ate nothing. We had to speak to the manager.More

Felt like a “pint” in an English pub. Was in the area so gave this place a try. Not a bad choice. Easy close parking. Plenty of comfortable seating in a reasonable facsimile of an English pub. Staff were quick and polite. Beer was great,...and food was pretty good too, at reasonable prices. So all in all a good choice. But little cheapnesses bother me. The waitress asks, “Would you like gravy on you steak pie?”. Well of course I want gravy on my pie. Who doesn’t? So the pie came with a little plastic container of gravy. Then I got the bill. Yes, you guessed it, $1.25 for the gravy. Another cheap thing; potatoes in the steak pie! I had all the potatoes I wanted with the fries. I didn’t need a “cheap” steak pie full of potatoes. Can’t stand these cheating kind of revenue tools. With such managment, I will not return.More

The Fool and Flagon was very good. We decided on it because of it's variety of food. It's a pub style place and it was full of people when we went on Friday night even though it is located in a small plaza. It did...get a bit too loud when the band started playing, but the atmosphere was nice and the food was very good!More
