My wife and I have eaten at this pub on a number of occasions now and it's our favourite place for a pint and a meal in Barrie. We have been extremely happy with the quality and quantity of food and the service is excellent too. We tend to sit outside, on the patio, so we can watch the people go by. There are only about six tables on the sidewalk patio so it does sometimes mean a little wait but there are plenty of tables inside too.

Our favourite is the Fish & Chips. We've both had this meal on a number of occasions and it is excellent. A very large piece of fish with some great "chips", very good tartar sauce and some peas. You cannot go wrong with this fish and on Friday night it is 2 for 1 (at least right now). The pulled pork sandwich is also great.

Beer is cold, service is good and food is great - what more could you ask for?

I ate here a couple of weeks ago...food and service were great. Patio area is nice, however people walking by are just on the other side of the barrier, so not much privacy while you eat.

We first went for their Wing night on Tuesday which is very busy, and now we're regulars on a Friday for the best fish and chips we have ever had. My wife and I are both Britsh and can't praise this place enough. The staff have always treated us as "regulars" from the first time we ate there. The staff are attentive without being intrusive and always happy to answer questions, regardless of how busy they are. Menu is traditional with some mild north american influence.

We will try their burger deal on a wednesday night next!. We love this place
