Well we had a good time after our brewery tour even if our server was not as knowledgeable as she should have been, anyway food was good even we have been served a complete different meal as we ordered and the beer was even better.

The server was not very knowledgeable about the food or the drinks but was nonetheless very pleasant (assume she was new). The food was very tasty although quite a long wait. Good thing we weren't in a hurry. The drinks, as ever here, were good.

This place is part of the Alexander Keith's complex, just inside the main door. Lots of heavy wood, waiters and waitresses in kilts, and a smallish menu. We ordered fish and chips, supposedly one of their award winners. The fish was actually Haddock, not cod...More

My boyfriend and I stopped by before heading to the bar, and we're glad we did. He got the steak sandwich and I got the lobster roll, and it was absolutely amazing - probably the best lobster roll I've ever had. The service was perfect,...More

A return visit to Halifax, a return visit to the Red Stag. An impressive pub for simple food. I had the battered fish and chips. Excellent and a good choice of beers to go with it. Highly recommended if you want pub food.
