I visit this place every time Iím in that shitty city; the bar is a shinning beacon of hope for that horse-town. The joint is classy, clean, and stinks of confidence; itís great. The staff is knowledgeable, courteous, and quick. The selection is pretty damn good, there are often fantastic pints on tap; not a Coors to be seen. Unlike Volo the food is fantastic, though a tad bit pricey at times. The drinks are mostly reasonably priced. Overall, a damn good reason to visit the town, potentially the only good reason.

In town to see the petes. Went here for dinner and a couple of brews. Very nice place. Some nice Belgians on tap, had a dubbel and a triple served in brewer specific glassware, they were both very tasty. The waitress was very nice and the food was absolutely outstanding, I had the best club sandwich I have ever had. Really cool place look forward to going again. Given how crappy the US dollar is doing vs the loonie itís not cheap to drink great beer in Canada for us yanks right now .

Place has a funny appearance, it is fairly old style in side, the bar is pretty small, this is mostly an eatery with a good beer list. I had a turkey samwich, get the one with gravy it was really tasty stuff. The beer list was pretty extensive, mostly just belgians. The had a few things on tap. some locals, some import, they didnt have many taps. mostly bottles. Decent place, not my favorite but petes got some good beer locations,

St. Veronus is an excellent beer bar. The staff are knowledgeable about the beers they serve and actually serve them in proper glassware! Second best beer bar in Ontario (only to Bar Volo in Toronto). Fantastic atmosphere, excellent food and great selection of Belgian beers. Itís a must if you find yourself near Peterborough!

Best place outside of Toronto to grab a beer. Even so, this place stands on its own. Dedicated, involved staff who talk the talk. A relvolving guest tap helps to round out thier stellar Belgian focused selection. The food is artful, delicious and well priced.

We were lucky to get a seat for five within minutes at lunch time on a Friday. Obviously very Belgian-themed decor with Stella and other glasses strewn about. The menu has plenty of Belgian food and a pretty solid selection of beers at rock-bottom prices.
So far this is the cheapest I’ve seen a Rochefort 10, I think it was $8.75 or $9.25 or something.
I had a prime rib sandwich special that was quite delicious

Stopped in Friday afternoon for lunch with a few ratebeerians. The place is separated into a few different rooms with a bar area. Nicer interior, most decorations are Belgian beer themed. Solid selection, most of the beer menu is made up of Belgian ales with a few others represented. Food menu was relatively small, but I believe it was just a lunch menu, plus all the food looked great. I had a killer sandwich. Delicious. Staff was friendly and pretty quick. Itís definitely a great place for a beer. Iíd definitely drink AND eat here often if I lived in the area

Update (Dec 12, 2007). I have eaten here quite a few times, recently, and it is really growing on me. The food, that is. Iíve always liked the beers. A few of the items still seem a little heavy on the oil, but everything tastes good. Iíve actually had some really good sandwiches. Itís still too crowded, but the servers are friendly and quite competent. Beer selection is outstanding.

I was a regular here while living in Peterborough. Fantastic selection of beer; new ones coming in all the time. Food is outstanding; stoemp, mussels et frites, rabbit, duck, and amazing specials that are always changing. My favourite combo there; Rochefort 8 and chocolate cheesecake! Staff are knowledgable and friendly; every year the owner, Roland, and some staff travel to Belgium to stay current. Roland and Andrea always took great care of me there!
If youíre anywhere close to Peterborough (say a 3 hour range) do not miss this place!!

While no restaurant can be perfect, this was hands down the best place I have ever been to. The ambiance was great. Amazing show of glasses and wooden decor. Their food is the best thing I have ever put in my mouth. I do not exaggerate when I say this. I never expected my best food experience to be at Peterborough. Try out the French Country Mixed Grilled Plate. Absolutely amazing! Great selection of beer. I had the pleasure of drinking a Gulden Draak (thanks to a very knowledgable waiter) and St. Bernardus Abt 12. This was a great discovery thanks to an anonymous tipper. I highly recommend stopping by if youíre in Peterborough! Great service, great food!
