repeat visits to this brewery resulted in the same conclusion. great stouts and porters. average to poor food. double forno heated to 400 degrees and kamloops-style drizzled pizza instead of 900 degrees and napoli style. damn shame. looks like the place sold in september. that...property is cursed. hasn't been able to sustain a business since the original avalon.More

This is a solid place. So much is going for it...including great, friendly staff, TONS of great beers on tap, Killer wings, and solid pizza. Specifically a big fan of the spicy lime sriracha wings and the maple bourbon bacon pizza from their Forno oven....The beers are always changing but they always have lots of local taps to choose from. It’s become a real go to spot for us - I think we’re regulars! :) A great local place to support - Enjoy!More

As an Englishman in Canada during these unprecedented times, I’ve been missing a taste of home. I came in for the first time today, and tried the Taylor’s special bitter and it was phenomenal. Exactly what I wanted, and what the Canadian beer industry needs....(Personally I’d prefer it less cold and pulled from a hand pump, but I understand that’s not how it’s done over here). Taylor, I don’t know who you are, but thank you. I also had the deep fried pickles. Tasty and a good portion size. Staff were friendly. Everything seemed very covid-safe. I’ll definitely be back. Hopefully before they run out of Taylor’s!More

We frequent Hearthstone for the awesome atmosphere, impressive beer list and solid menu. No matter what time of day, Hearthstone is a great option. It’s perfect for an afternoon enjoying beer and pizza. The service is good and it’s spaced appropriately so you feel safe...dining in or outside. If you’re in the neighbourhood, you should definitely stop in.More

Looking for some new places to try, good choice for sure! Saturday evening, very popular, good vibe, can be a tad loud with serveral big screens and music as well. Order and pay at the til routine. Decent selection on the menu with generous portions...Great craft selections for a taster flight, wine flight available as well. We selected the Brussel sprouts spoke, very nice! The timber burger and the pesto quesadilla. All very nice, tasty and generous! Worth a visit!!More

Good food, nice place, and some interesting beers. I particularly liked the graham cracker ale. I had the maple bourbon burger, which was very good, with great french fries. My wife had a citrus arugula salad, and a side of hummas and pita. Service was...good and everything seemed reasonably priced. Also had off street parking, which seems like a big plus. Good stop for lunch.More

This is a very nice gastropub with plenty of seating choices in their woody, attractive interior. Some outdoor seating is also available, weather permitting. The location is on a main thoroughfare and near public transport (bus stop). The kitchen includes a large, wood-fired oven that...generates rather exotic pizzas that are not cheap but that are generously topped. During my visit in June 2019 there were 4 standard beers on tap plus 8 "Rotating" taps; altogether this provided a wide range of beer styles to choose from including IPA, sour, milk stout, Berliner Weisse, rice lager, ESB, APA and DIPA. All 7 beers I have had here were good and a couple were excellent.More

This used to be a great place to go for a burger or pizza & beer and the service was great. My issue is not with the food as it is still very good. My issue is with the service. The owner(s) have changed the...format and now it is basically a self-serve restaurant. The customer is expected to go to the bar and order their drinks & food. The problem with this is that we stood in line for 10 minutes to order a couple of beers. When we were ready to order food, we then stood in line an another 10-15 minutes to order the food. There were people in the line in front of us ordering or paying. Again when it was time to pay, there was a wait. The whole process is extremely inefficient. The restaurant/pub was empty (on a Saturday evening!) and the patio was almost but not quite full. We will not be back. It would not surprise me to see this place close down.More

Rustic decor when you enter ypu need to order drinks and food at the bar. At the heart of the restaurant is our double forno oven so you gotta try the pizza! We had the deep fried pickles and the truffle fries both were good...but we regret not trying the pizza. I had the Rizzla Rice Lager was okay but would try the pilsner next time.More
