Great pub atmosphere with lots of gluten free options for guests to select from. Great selection of drinks and delicious food. I would recommend making a reservation and could use more parking, but great experience overall!

This is more than a pub; it's a very very good restaurant. We went on Sunday and were able to enjoy the prime rib dinner with huge Yorkshire servings. Be sure to make reservations.

Extended family meal for 8 people. Went on Rib night, so ordered the ribs. Not really fall off the bone. Nothing wrong, just not great. Wine is expensive

That is correct Constance, health regulations do not allow smoking or dogs on the patio. We offer many gluten free options .....breads, pasta, desserts and we prepare custom plates.

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 Chef Rob Lussier's culinary delights, over 900 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.
