One of the top restaurants in the Grimbsy area, recently... More

This was our second time here. Half-price wings garner a crowd! The wings are really good - and the tequila lime BBQ sauce rocks! We orders their sweet potato fries - good size serving and were nice and crispy! Be there before noon, or you will be relegated to the back room ;-) A drink purchase is required to get... More

What a great atmosphere! Great selection of brew, friendly service, and great pub fare. If you are in the area this is a must visit. There is plenty of free parking even though the pub is in the heart of town. I've been here at least a dozen times in the last three or four years and it never disappoints.

Went to visit the Grimsby market and bases on reviews visited the Judge and Jester for lunch. Though the interior itself looks a little " long in the tooth" the food i.e. Chicken fingers was quite excellent. Fries were crisp and tasty. Certainly great pub fare!

Thank Janis D
