This is a British pub location, and has really good food and a great atmosphere. It has a room to rent for parties, which is nice, and is in an old stone building.

There is no better way to spend a cold wintry afternoon than listening to the coachmen with a new guest each week. Two pints of Guinness draft and good pub food rounds off a great afternoon.

I'm definitely a little partial to this place as it's where I met my sweetheart for the very first time. The food and service is great. It feels like home.

The restaurant is small and has a nice patio. The food was good, the service was friendly and prompt. They have a great selection of beer on tap. The one concern would be the fact it is tough to get a table on great weather days. That's because it is a great place to go.

It's a pub. Try and have some fun. Food is average. Service was unfriendly to say the least. I will never go back.

You have to walk through a mini alley to get into the restaurants. the restaurant seem small and dingy. Not incredibly inviting. We ordered the stuffed mushrooms, caesar salads and chicken wings. The food did not disappoint. The stuffed mushrooms were... More

Pub grub. Beer. Atmosphere. What more do you want? This is a genuine old Canadian pub. The oldest in the area. Dark and comfortable with tons of atmosphere. Food is very good with different specials daily and service is friendly and quick. You want to eat at a pub? This is it.

I was meeting a friend for lunch and wanted to try this pub that I have driven by several times. I recalled I had a coupon from the Entertainment Book and that was the push I needed to suggest this for my lunch date. Housed in a 200 year old building on the main street of Ancaster, it has served... More
