This is snug pub on Sparks Street. It's good to to have an alternative to some of the larger chain restaurants nearby. It's a smaller space, which makes it cosy and you don't feel like you're in a warehouse. There's a good selection of beers, including a fair range of craft beer. They were out of the first beer I...

Small place with good atmosphere. Staff very friendly. Clean. Not so great that they were out of the first two types of beer I ordered from tap choices.

Brixton's is cozy, has attentive and friendly service and a fun menu. I haven't had a Maritimes' style donair is decades so of course I ordered it - the donair meat was processed but the rest of it was fresh and tasty. The beer selection is good and the ambiance fun and inviting. I was pleased with my evening here.

Been here with my wife for a few drink and a quick dinner a couple of weeks. Ago. I could see just a "front house waitress" but she was good to keep everything under control. Had a decent fish and chips. Nice beer.

While out on a walk around Ottawa, we stopped in for light refreshments and a snack. Service was excellent and so were the prices, half price nachos (yeah) and happy hour. The place was moderately busy, so a bit noisy. We will stop in again.

Result, should have gotten the burger, sweat donair sauce was excellent, the meat, not the best donair I ever had. All... More

Overall disappointing as I had paid for bacon on a burger and it wasn't included, they ignored a request to replace salsa with sour cream and a salad was missing feta cheese and a combo platter of appetizers was missing one of the advertised apps. There are far better options, considering going elsewhere.

My friend ordered the somersby punch afterwards and I tried to order a somersby (listed on draught) and the server snapped that they don't have... More

Ordered what was described as a Greek salad. It was three-quarters lettuce and very limp lettuce at that. A few pieces of tomato and an olive or two (but not the right type). The server brought this dressing (didn't get the choice offered on the menu) insisting it was a Greek dressing. No it wasn't. Worst abomination of a so-called... More

Terrible!!! Terrible food and service Serving frozen fish for their lunch special Which tasted awful!!! Soda was flat as was the replacement. They had no butter and we were told they had no need for it because they put mayo on their sandwiches. Waitress was rude and unhelpful and indifferent to complaint
