We had family visiting from florida. They totally enjoyed the experience. 800 selections of whiskey. Food was good and so was the service.

Visited twice in two days. Has the feel of a local British pub. First day just for cocktails - over 750 varieties of whiskey! The second visit was for dinner. Bangers and mash was excellent with ample serving size. Just like we had in Ireland. Desserts also looked good though we couldn't hold any more. Would definitely go back again.

We had lunch which was nice. Nice surroundings too - lots of whiskeys!! Home made fries were lovely, as was the sandwich. Quiet at lunch time, which was great. Heather, our server was really lovely, not so keen on the other female staff members! A little sour faced and a bit lazy.... Heather appeared to be doing ALL the work..

We went for dinner on a Wednesday evening. I had the Thai coconut mussels to start and my hubby had the soup of the day, carrot-ginger. The mussels were amazing. Best I've ever had. I wanted to drink the sauce, it was soooo good. My hubby thoroughly enjoyed his soup too. I had the lamb shank for an entree and... More

This could be a great place but unfortunately is not due to cranky servers. I was very excited to go and try the whisky selection as they have many! But OHHHH big mistake!!! I took my kids!!! Don't even dare putting a foot there if you go with kids, they looked down on us right away saying we were not... More

Some people bypass this jewel in Thornbury, because it's up the hill (from the traffic lights in middle of town), but it's worth searching out. The food is unique and great. Bartender Bruce and his team are friendly and fun. It is truly my favorite pub in Ontario!! (well along with the Angel Inn in Niagara-on-the-Lake). Check out their daily... More

We are staying in Blue Mountain and decided to give this restaurant a try after reading reviews on tripadvisor. The restaurant is in an old house and the decor is very warm and inviting. My husband had the lamb shank and I had the steak and kidney pie which is one of my favourites. The portions are generous and both... More

Came here on a Sunday night to end off the summer with a quick getaway up to Blue Mountain Village with friends and their families. When the wives decided to call it a night and put the kids to bed, the three guys stole away for a quick couple pints and some whisky sampling at the The Dam Pub right... More

A popular family owned Gastropub set in the quaint village of Thornbury, Ontario. We are featured regularly on The Food Network's "You Gotta Eat Here!" Folks come for miles to enjoy Red Seal Chef Suzette Gerry's culinary delights, over 665 whiskies in Stephanie's Whisky Bar, and our impeccable service with seasoned waiters. All this nestled into our circa 1875 house with a welcoming and cozy ambience. Reservations highly recommended. YES when you see that little yellow airplane pulling a banner saying THEDAMPUB.CA-ALL DESSERTS HOMEMADE ...... that is us!
