My husband and I stopped in for a quick bite last Thursday night, but ended up staying for hours, enjoying the entertainment. The chef came to our table to discuss my food preferences (vegan), adapted a menu item for me, and prepared delicious meals for both of us. We enjoyed the music of Brad James, who took our requests and... More

First time here and really enjoyed. The staff are super nice, food was good and The David Love band was a great addition. Definitely worth a visit!

I had the bruschetta, nachos and spinach dip. I also had a surfer on acid and it tasted amazing. All were too die for. The server Stu was very kind, polite, professional and quick. Even though we were doing a business meeting, and that was our first time there, we are actually excited to come back for dinner with our... More

I was at Purple Heather Pub and stayed for several hours; long enough to order 2 meals. The staff were great and music top notch, but I was very satisfied with both food portions I ate. I mentioned some specific food sensitivities and both were handled confidently. Our family has returned now a couple of times and all meals have... More

Cool that their good taps are same price or cheaper than the major brands. Interesting specials available. I managed to miss most of them. Definitely a timing thing. Dry ribs, made for dipping, but dry works well enough to remind me to not get them. Nothing wrong with them, just ribs. Wings were perfect, as they should be. A decent... More

Thanks for taking the time to review the Heather. Please keep in touch as we have exciting plans for early 2017 including a new micro brewery in the north east corner of the Pub paired with a new craft oriented menu. Definitely worth a second look.

I have now been to this pub for the past 2 years on my visits to relatives. My Brother in Law compares the Quiz night on a Wednesday. Great evening and decent food with hospitable landlord Doug. Good food selection and friendly atmosphere

We weren't expecting much when we stopped in for lunch during a road trip but were pleasantly surprised by the quality food and good value in a casual strip mall setting. The service was friendly and the food was hot. The beer was very good, too.

In 2015, The Purple Heather hosted a very successful fundraiser for the Burlington Terry Fox Run. So, when the news broke that the CBC was going to air the final Tragically Hip show live across the nation, and that many cities and venues were hosting viewing parties, the Burlington Terry Fox Run community approached the Purple Heather Pub once again...

Went for dinner last night with a bunch of friends. It was our first time there for all of us and I have to say the food was mediocre. Nothing special at all and disappointing for the very high cost. It's a nice pub and has entertainment and a nice patio but is way over priced for what you get.... More

My wife and I have been here a few times to meet friends for drinks. On three or four occasions, we have ordered food. The quality of the food has been average, at best, once, quite poor.. The wait staff is slow to follow up on meal orders or drink refills. The positives are lots of parking (mall location) and... More
