This is a quaint restaurant on the main street in downtown Napanee, that is properly laid out as a Brit pub. With lots of seating and great food and drink. It was Thursday wing day ($7 per pound) when we arrived so I had to...More

This pub/bar/restaurant is very reliable. Plus they serve Goose Island IPA! The service is always friendly and good. The food is always prompt, plentiful and tasty. We will go again.

We went on Thursday for the chicken wing special - very tasty and hoping to make it a weekly event. We are not drinkers, and it was nice that no one was trying to push booze on us. Great place.

Nice pub in the downtown with a typical pub menu. I had a Cajun chicken wrap which was excellent and my friend had a roast beef dip which he loved. Lots of tender beef piled high and the sides of fries and Salad were also...More

Food was OK but service very slow. It was a Sunday and not very busy at the time and we were a group of 12. My chicken parmigiano was overcooked but the chicken wings were good.

Questions & Answers
Why would you take a 12 year old girl to a PUB? The fact remains that their profit margin likely comes from the sale of booze. You only need to enter the place to realize it is no place for a child. That is on you! Any foul language she heard was as a result of your parenting choice to have her in an adult setting. I would bet money that she was likely the ONLY child in there. That does not however excuse poor service & under cooked food & hygiene practice's you speak of. If you are that sensitive about the location of the bathroom facilities, I suggest you scope out a place before you get a table. Save yourself the grief. There are doors on those bathrooms!I have been in the ladies a couple of times & I am extremely picky. It was very clean. You only mentioned bad things though. Are you sure you were not having an off day? I would no sooner spend over 20 minutes waiting for a server(s) that are spitting distance away. The place is not that big. Your child had to be starving at this point & definitely getting a sour stomach soaking up your increasing tensions. Your table must have been a joy. I hope you learned things from your experience so you can avoid such an unpleasant one in the future.
