Went here for a quiet halloween meal with friends and ended up having anything but. Won't waste my money here ever again. They had an open mic comedy thing going on which nobody had any idea about. The first dude up was just straight up offensive. I'm not a prude but the guy just wasn't funny, all he did was... More

Went to Poacher's for lunch. We were the only people in the restaurant. Our server came right over and got our drink orders in. 20 minutes later he comes back for our food orders.......we only have a 45 minute lunch, so we decided to just drink our drinks and order our food to go. Food took another 30 minutes. We... More

My initial impression was tainted by a policy which made sense to me after it was explained based on their location . Downtown London sees its variety of drink and dash people ,so being a "New Customer " the server was a little guarded with me. Coming from small town Ontario I took offence to the policy .After frequenting this... More

Went there twice with friends. Absolutely enjoyed the food and beers, customer service was amazing too. It's a nice pub for casual gatherings. I think they have karaoke and pool tables too!

The service was good. I like the atmosphere they had live music on Saturday night. Spacious seating. The Italian burger was amazing.

My daughter and I went during her lunch. We told the waiter we had a limited time and he said that he could accommodate us. We started with their signature soup - Potato, Cheddar and Ale Soup. It is a must to try! We both had the Crispy Chicken Wrap which was the special of the day. It was delicious!... More

This is a bit hidden away because the entrance is a stairway down to the basement level of a building on Queens. We visited for dinner with our young daughter. There isn't a formal reception area which seemed odd for a restaurant facility but we were greeted kindly and given a table. The food came very late. My meal was... More

We went here for a late night drink/dinner on a Friday. The nachos were standard pub fare but the fish & chips were mediocer - in fact you could tell they were store bought/frozen; not good for a pub. They had decent live entertainment but the place was 3/4 empty.
