We went on a recent weekday evening, and they were moderately busy. Some people were at the bar just drinking; others at tables eating. It's not huge, and I thought the atmosphere was pretty good. Our server, Christy, was good and efficient.

We had two draft Stellas: tall (pints) and cold at $6.50 each. Their menu is just about what I think pub food should be: several appetizers and salads, a small number of "entrees," and a good selection of burgers, sandwiches, and wraps.

Having similar tastes, we both opted for the "Smoked Meat on Rye" (as they describe it, Montreal-style beef brisket). As advertised, the meat came moderately "piled high," with the largest side of French Fries (really good, the highlight of the meal) I've ever seen. In contrast, the side of coleslaw was the smallest portion imaginable. I thought the brisket was kind of "chewy!" Each was $13.99 ($12.99 on website).

I liked the atmosphere there, and I would go back. However, I would try something else on the menu.

Popular pub in town serves typical pub food.
Customers range from singles to families.
Plates are full so you won't go away hungry. The food was good.
Service is quick and friendly.
The atmosphere is relaxed.

Family had decent meal. Hamburger was excellent, fries were fresh cut and good but not spectacular. Pasta wasn't great according to kids and salads were fresh but nothing special. Service was good, food was made fresh and would recommend if you need place to eat in Madoc, but suggest you stick to the pub food for best results.

The food and service were good. I had the fish and chips and they were tasty. Friendly atmosphere. They advertised home made pies but didn't have any. Would stop here again.

Tired after a longish drive from Toronto, we refuelled at this cool, funky small-town pub-restaurant. Nice wooden beams and floors. Good friendly informative staff and lots of rib-/sticking choices washed down with cold beer and wine. We enjoyed a huge plate of nachos and some local beer. Service was quick, food plentiful and the atmosphere was fun and friendly. This was a favourite of our hosts who lived about an hour's travel north!
