Noisy, even for a pub. The most inattentive service I can remember. Special (fish tacos) not especially good, and I made a very unfortunate choice in beer. So .... done with this place for a long time. And I've had far better meals here. Disappointing.

This place was great! We have visited many pubs in Ireland (including one in Kilkenny!) and Scotland, and this felt authentic. Good selection of beers. Beef and bison stew was outstanding, as was the Yorkshire tidbit (and the portions were very generous). Calgary is lucky...More

It is one of my preferred pubs in Calgary, their own draft beer (lamps) is great and food is excellent for a pub.

Came here with a group. We were served quickly. The food was hearty, everyone had leftovers. I had the beef and bison stew. Beer was good, good selection. The place was not too noisy so we could have a conversation.
