Waitress recommended fish and chips and she was absolutely right to do so - it's perfect. We're hard pressed to find fish&chips of that quality in Toronto. Service was excellent as well (I think the waitress's name was Jena). We will visit again whenever we're...More

Description
Great home cooked pub food with the best selection of craft beer on tap North of Toronto. With large bay windows you have an indoor/outdoor atmosphere all through the year.
