“Amazing Spot for Any Occassion”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

This has become a family favorite for us. we have had both lunch and dinner here, and found the setting, menu, and service to be excellent on all occasions. For such a small area, to find such a great venue is truly a wonderful experience. We were here for lunch the other day. Steak and fries were the daily special. The strip loin was sourced from the butcher across the street from the restaurant. THAT is local sourcing !! I ordered it medium rare (as I am want to do), and it was very nicely done, with a great sprinkling of fresh ground pepper. Fries are fresh cut and nicely prepared. The best part is that local beers that are on tap (Barley Days from Prince Edward County). If you like "pub" atmosphere, sit out front. If you like an "open" area, sit in the back which hangs out close to the local river. A great experience will be had, either way !!

“Exactly What You'd Expect”
Reviewed 4 May 2014 via mobile

Surprisingly great pub grub. I am a huge fan of good fish and chips and they are always hit and miss. This place had the best fish and chips I have had in years.

Madoc was not our destination and we were just passing by but the next time we pass by, I know where we will stop for lunch.

“Busy Place”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

We stopped for lunch on a sunny April day, and the place quickly filled up. We opted for simple fare; soup of the day (good, but could have been hotter) deep fried dill pickles, hamburger and fries. Wanted to try their deep fried zucchini, but it is no longer available.
Home made 8oz burger was very tasty.... fries could have been hotter, fried pickles had a great crunchy coating and were a generous sized portion.
Looking at orders going by us, the food all looked good, and good portions.
Good variety of dishes on their menu, and prices seemed reasonable.
Lots of bottled and draft beer selections, friendly and efficient server.
I can easily see why it's a popular place.

“Always enjoy the Barley Pub”
Reviewed 7 March 2014

This is a popular destination for ourselves and our neighbours on a Friday night. The food is pub-style, but very well prepared. In fact tonight I enjoyed the best Seafood Platter with pan-fried fish, delicately seasoned shrimp and nicely breaded deep-fried shrimp. Yummy Caesar Salad as a side. We have been enjoying outings here for a couple of years, and are pleased that the new owners have actually improved on what was already a pretty good restaurant. There is always a good fire going, the atmosphere is on the darker side and cozy, the staff is very good. No complaints at all. We look forward to our next visit.
