Decent sports pub type of place. Good tap selection, usually some cask as well which has always been in good shape when I have had it. Service adequate, but not knowledgeable at all. I have had a chance to try the food yet on my 2 visits. A good stop if youíre in the area, shame it doesnít have near the charm of its sister pub the Bow and Arrow in Toronto.

Located in the heart of the Glebe area of Ottawa. Fairly standard pubby decor. Three hand pumps and about another 15-20 taps. A wide selection featuring McAuslan, Wellington, and Scotch Irish. The food here was pretty good, typical burgers, but lots of selection of toppings and choice of patties. Servers were friendly, but as mentioned before, they didnít seem to know the beers all that well.

Location is, as mentioned before, not great. In a hip little neighbourhood, thatís fine, but parking must be murder. We were lucky enough to be there on a Sunday afternoon and got a close enough spot, but I wouldnít want to see this area on a saturday night, or an evening when the Renegades play (local Canadian Football team).
The place was relatively deserted. A few arrow-shaped high tables can be found near the long bar with all the taps, but we sat on a regular table because we wanted to eat.
Tap selection was really good, 20-ish with plenty of local representation from Wellington, Scotch Irish and Steamwhistle. Like a lot of places Iíve noticed in town, McAuslan seems to rule the micro scene with an iron fist, and was one of the only non-ontario micros available. 3 Beer engines were up and running, one from SI and two from Wellington. The beers Iíve sampled seemed pretty fresh.
Service was decent, but not overly friendly and/or knowledgeable about the beer. When I ordered a Corporal Punishment, the reaction I got from the waitress was "You know itís bitter, right?". And she screwed up my bill. Food was excellent. I had the Bison chili with a side of onion rings, my girlfriend went for the duck confit with a cranberry and St-Ambroise reduction, served with grilled veggies. Not bad for pub grub! And not too expensive too.

Fairly jocky, sports-bar-like ambiance (but I was there on Grey Cup Sunday so that may not be the usual). Service was friendly, fast and efficient. Plenty of taps of local micros to select from. Iíd return here again, although it wouldnít be my first stop.

I think the previous reviews are spot-on. No ambience is compensated by good choice of regional beer on taps and cask ale. Staffs were not very knowledgeable when I was there but very helpful though. Food is quite good and cheap for the Glebe.

Same comment as the flu...one side of the bar was empty, but the tap lines were full and ready for samples. 5$ for four 5 on. samples. Only thing, they always seem to have the same products. Tuesday night is 25 xcents wings...big juicy buggers

Zero ambiance is counter-balanced by a good selection of local microbrews. The food is quite a bargain as well.
