Absolutely fabulous food, amazing service and fabulous ambience. My family and I enjoyed a delicious lunch at the Dam Pub. The ambience in this restaurant brought us back to Scotland, the food was to die for, staff were courteous and efficient. The selection of Whisky was mind blowing. The owner's history was the cherry on top. Ace Aviator Gord Price... More

We had an amazing time there. I had burgers and crab cake and my strict vegan friend was also satisfied with her food. The whiskey menu is so diverse that you can find pretty much everything on it. Would def go back again.

Home made spinach & mushroom soup, sausage and mash and a great bread & butter pudding to finish off. Highly recommended (and useful to... More

What a great experience. Quality food, homemade sausages to die for, mouthwatering bread pudding and a flight of quality ales. What is not to applaud. An excellent malt of the month finished my meal. I left with a huge smile on my face and needed an extra hole in my belt. Well done to everyone, a first class experience.

A popular family owned Gastropub set in the quaint village of Thornbury, Ontario. We are featured regularly on The Food Network's "You Gotta Eat Here!" Folks come for miles to enjoy Red Seal Chef Suzette Gerry's culinary delights, over 665 whiskies in Stephanie's Whisky Bar, and our impeccable service with seasoned waiters. All this nestled into our circa 1875 house with a welcoming and cozy ambience. Reservations highly recommended. YES when you see that little yellow airplane pulling a banner saying THEDAMPUB.CA-ALL DESSERTS HOMEMADE ...... that is us!
