2015-08-01. Pub in an old house, with a handful of tables on the porch. Main room feels a bit cramped at first, we opted for a table in the back room, which was cozy with some cool Victorian (? paisley vintage look?) wall paper but was just a bit too warm today despite the best efforts of the fan in the room. Seating upstairs as well which we did not explore. Food menu looked and smelled amazing but we had a large late lunch so we opted to share a board, some hushpuppies, and fried brie for the table which were quite tasty. Tap list had a pretty good selection of Ontario craft breweries including several new ratings for us from the Guelph/K-W area, but nothing particularly exciting. Decent bottle list as well if I recall correctly but I did not look too closely at it, focusing on the taps. Server was very friendly and seemed to know a bit about the beers. Bathrooms are ludicrously oriented - Good luck if you are tall and need to sit down. :) Overall quite enjoyed it and would come back, probably to eat.

Visited on a recent weekend in Guelph with my fiancť.
What I had: Sawdust City Golden Beach Pale Wheat, Mill Street Brown Ale, and Spearhead Hawaiian Style Pale Ale on tap, some Nautilus and Jackson Estate Sauvignon Blancs for my partner.
What I liked: Clean, modern, and spacious gastropub interior, beautiful patio overlooking Baker Street, fast and friendly service, waitress was happy to provide samples, we enjoyed all of our drinks, food menu looked appetizing (though we didnít eat).
What I disliked: The tap list is solid but not among the best in the province, and prices are a tad high (esp. for Guelph), but overall this is a great gastropub.
Would I go back? Yes. These guys definitely "get it."
Overall Rating: 76

An old house converted into a Gastro Pub, where the food and beer are both showcased incredibly well. A large tap list of mainly Ontario craft, a few casks and a great food menu. Prices are high, but so is service and quality. Eat a meal there, you will not be disappointed. A great excuse to visit Guelph.

Nice friendly pub with good service, good food, and reasonable prices. Around 30 taps, Iíd say, each one pouring an Ontario craft brew. A small selection of Canada/US craft brews in bottles as well (ones from the LCBO). Will be my go-to place for when Iím in Guelph.

A nice little gastro in Guelph, too bad there are none in hometown Oakville! Cottagey feeling with old wood and chalk boards, decent service, but the real deal when it comes to beer. Bare minimum of 16 taps, a dozen bottles or so. A good menu as well, loaded with porky goodness. As if our old hideout the Woolwich Arms needed competition, Baker Street is in their backyard.
