The food, when it arrived over 90 minutes latter, was excellent. Way above average pub food but 90 minutes wait is just too long and we were not told that the wait would be that long. If you go do ask before you sit how long for the food. If you have the time the food was really excellent.

Northern is good quality pub food. The beers are good - huge variety - and the food solid. They have a good rotating special each night which is really good value. Pint and a burger for $10 the night i was there. Other reviews complained about slow service, but I had no complaints. It wasn't super fast, but is there... More

I would go back here. My partner got wings and enjoyed them with a nice cold beer and I was feeling like something with veggies so I got a rice bowl. It was nicer than I was expecting :) There is nothing better than sitting out on the patio in the sunshine with a cold beer as well!

Stopped in for supper during stay in Fernie. The food was good, but it took forever to be served. The service from the waitress was fine - the kitchen was super slow. We were in no rush and had plenty of time on our hands so we didn't mind but if we were starving and had somewhere to be -... More

I was wandering around Fernie in the morning I and took a peak at the menu scouting options for dinner in the evening. The hand pressed burgers caught my eye. I love a great burger. So, I went back in the evening and had exactly that. Burger with fries and kale/apple salad. The burger was excellent. Flavours were great. Good... More

We went here for a family meal, as the sign outside said kid friendly. There is no separate kid menu, so your kids are forced to choose from an adult menu. The food was fairly expensive for the level of service and the size and quality of the food we received. I had battered fish, but as I ate it... More

The Northern is a Tuesday favourite where their $10 Burger and Beer special can't be beat. Combine the best burger in town with a pint of beer from the Fernie Brewing Company and you'll be an instant local. And my personal recommendation, upgrade the fries to Poutine!
