Ate here twice when I was in town. Nice-looking place in what I assume is a historic hotel. Friendly staff. Big selection of Belgian (and a few other) beers. I had no problem finding many beers Iíd never tried. 3 rotating taps, and what I assume are rotating bottles as well. The food was delicious and the portions were generous. And the food was all Belgian to match the beer. We mostly ate the sandwiches, and they were all delicious. Food slightly pricey (but, as I mentioned, quantity and quality is good), but the beer prices are surprisingly fair. My only complaint was they had no highchairs for my baby. I know this may not be a problem for everyone.

Favorite Bar. Period. Great place to learn about beer and try some of Europeís best. LIkely the only place to get a lot of the beers offered in Peterborough without travelling to Toronto. Knowledgeable and friendly staff, I love this bar predominantly based upon staff and beer selection and the majority of people in Peterborough put their food at the forefront. An Ontario beer loverís "must attend".

A very nice old school European style pub. Service was very nice and friendly. Selection was an impressive amount of good European beers. Food was great European fare. Prices were pretty high, but quality was good. A great place in a small town.

Stopped once while visiting people in Peterborough and another time while driving between Toronto and Ottawa on Highway 7. If you are doing that trek I would almost go the back way just so you can stop in here for lunch. The food is quite tasty and reasonable, decent tap selection and nice bottle list. They are getting more respect from the distributors and importers and now get stuff that used to just be in Ottawa and Toronto. Staff is knowledable and friendly.

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
