Gosh!! Did'nt realise have been patronising this place for 20yrs. We are regulars at this place and the service is really great and friendly.

We arrived at lunch. You would expect them to have someone other than 1 person waiting the tables. The restaurant wasn't by any means busy, but it took a long time for us to get anyone to take our order. Once ordered, it took twice as long for the food to arrive. To the Point where we wanted to cancel... More

Had the chicken taco special on Tuesday which was interesting. Full of flavour, but could of done without the white cream cheese like sauce. Then I had the wings which were pretty good.

Have patronised this place for over 20 yrs and have always found this place has good vibes. Excellent service, always prompt and friendly and the food is great. They are celebrating their 20th anniversary in March this year. Our group will certainly keep meeting here frequnetly and enjoy their services.

If there's one thing the Firken pub chain delivers on it is predictability. The Owl & Firken is no different. The huge menu (this should serve as a warning as no restaurant on earth can deliver exceptional food when there are so many selections available) contains the usual pub-style food - burgers, sandwiches, fish & chips and so on. None... More

Had a couple of hours to kill before an evening project. Needed a place to get caught up on work and get some sustenance. The place on Monday (as are many places) is dead. Not that I wanted a hopping time with noise and craziness. So...it worked out. It's a standard firkin pub. Booze and pub food. Had their Jerk... More

We were on vacation and staying in a hotel just a three minute walk away. We actually visited twice, once for drinks and appetizers and once for dinner. The service was excellent and friendly while the food was very good and certainly delicious. Of course, the beer and wine selection was very good, as well. The atmosphere is casual and... More
