Feels like going back in time about 30 years. Very old school brewpub, own beer is OK, decent selection of Ontario micros.

Venerable brewpub, downtown location close to the waterside. Just popped in as we were passing through. Very English pubby feelmin atmosphere. Most of the beers seemed UK-inspired too from what I got to try. Unfortunately that was only a couple as we didnít have a lot of time and there was no facility for getting samples. Nothing world-shattering but OK. Food was fine.

Friendly, family-conscious, very local vibe, a bit relaxed and dive-pub style, food passable, beer is just OK and occasionally good or even very good, no helpful beer listing and one has to ask about every beer or the ABV, home. Have to go, they support largely micro Ontario, and brew the odd one-off.

Place rating #500. Popped in here on our recent trip through to Montreal. A very kitchy well-worn interior. Definitely feels lived-in, but not in a divey way - more like a comfy old sweater. The service and the food were good. I only got to try a few beer while I was in - the cask bitter was pretty authentic. They had a solid dunkel on as well. Itís not going to knock your socks off, but itís a pretty nice spot for a sandwich and a pint.

2013-05-01. You kind of have to stop here if you are in town but I find the beers are a bit less than stellar. The food has always been good. They are now doing "chefís specials" that are a bit more upscale than the usual pub grub. The braised beef and mashed potatoes I had were superlatively good. Their two biggest sellers are now being contract brewed off-site apparently. Definitely still worth a visit while in town.
RBSG 05. Food was awesome, burgers. Waitress (nicole) was especially friendly and accomadating when I said I was driving so would only be sampling a little bit. Even loaned me a pen when mine conked out. This place grows on me with each visit.

A nice stop for lunch between Toronto and Ottawa. Place is a bit kitchy, but fun for the kids. Beers were decent, not world beaters, but a nice selection of their own plus regional micros. Food was ok, fine pub food. No idea what the places looks like at night.

Decent enough place to kick back a couple pints in Kingston. their beers can range from fairly good to flat out boring, but the food is above decent and the service is always quick. Warning - the pub across the street has only 3 decent bottles so youíre better off parking yourself here. Hard to believe a university town has so few good establishments.

Iíve been here quite a few times and itís fairly good for Kingston standards. They are primarily focused on their own beers which are acceptable but nothing special. The ambiance is pretty nice, lots of beer memorabilia everywhere and the bar is sectioned off into several areas so if you have a few people you definitely can feel like you have a room to yourself. Food is adequate.
