I have visited Sarnia a few times just to see what there is to do there. Dropping into a few pubs has been a very nice distraction. The Ups n' Downs is my favourite so far. Their Pub Food so far has been the highlight. If you like real Steak and Kidney Pie, you're in luck. Just to be sure... More

Went with girlfriend last Friday around 7:30 PM the place was jumping. Ordered a bite to eat and girlfriend had to have the steak and kidney pie. Both meals were good pub food the cook left the egg wash off the steak and kidney pie which made the top look kinda white rather than that nice crust look. Waitress was... More

Comfortable atmosphere, descent food, reasonable prices. Con is the too dim lighting. Bands play at night, has a view of the river. Menu is broad enough that all appetites should be able to find something they can eat.

Thanks for the feedback. We are working at resolving the lighting issue so that its bright enough for all to read the menu and navigate our somewhat wonky layout while at the same time retaining some of the old world ambiance. More

Very good old style tavern. The food was absolutely great for a pub. The chili and the fish and chips were better than you would expect at a bar.
