A great place to get a bite to eat and drink, staff are extremely friendly, food is excellent, especially the selection of chicken wings, of which we tried several, my favourite pub in Ottawa.

If you want Haggis and Scotch, this is the pub for you. Fair variety on the menu, and daily specials on pints, etc. And at 9:00, we were treated to some live music. Overall, pleasant, and reasonable value. Enjoyed the tortilla pipes.
