Nothing terrible. Here before hockey game, server was efficient, but sitting in the courtyard was not great ambience. 2 casks on though made it worth it.

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 you’re in the area, shame it doesn’t have near the charm of its sister pub the Bow and Arrow in Toronto.

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.

Been here a couple of time in the the last couple of months, most recently for the Cask Festival. Probably the best selection of local (Ontario) beers in the city. Suffers from a poor location with a weird inside patio in a mall but also has an outside patio that is nice. Food is decent, as is the service but I am hoping they continue their trend of rotating in different local beers and that they expand their cask selection (3 the last time I was there).

L’apparence de ce pub est bien ordinaire (ça va avec le reste du complex où il se retrouve) mais il y a beaucoup de place pour boire. Le choix par contre est très bien, domminé par des bières micro-ontariennes et la nouriture est très intéressant.

I was expecting more of an old-school, wood filled pub along the lines of the Bow & Arrow or Rebel House in Toronto, but this is along those lines with that “plunked in a mall” feel to it. It was cozy though, and the smell of chicken wings permeated the air as we walked in instantly deciding my menu choice. Wings were delicious, though I have to admit that mine tasted better, and I was sweating a lot less after returning Intertiaboy’s suicide wings in exchange for my medium wings! The staff was friendly and courteous, despite an inability to identify what kind of sauce is on the wings, hehe. Cask of Scotch Irish was not at its prime but still quaffable. Beer selection had decent sampling of Ontario micros. Nice spot to hang out and watch the game, really enjoyed my visit, but I wouldn’t necessarily recommend going out of your way to get there.

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. I’d return here again, although it wouldn’t be my first stop.

Location is, as mentioned before, not great. In a hip little neighbourhood, that’s 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 wouldn’t 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 I’ve 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 I’ve 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 it’s 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.

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