Popped by on our beer tours of the city. The pub is nice, on one of the best strips in town, and has an open airy feel to it. I’d say the fun stops there. The beers are rather pedestrian, at best. Not worth making it a destination. Next time i’m in the area i’m going to make it a point to not try to much beer here and go somewhere that is more exiting.
A great old school pub with a nice open air seating area. Service was pretty good. Selection was decent, they do a tasting flight which was very reasonable. Beer itself went from bad to pretty good. A decent place I would be happy to visit. We didn’t eat.
Great place; their "Wild Old Ale" was the first beer I ever liked, although I had it at it’s sister restaurant and neighbour Hot Belly Mama’s which has better food, but a different ambience. Both places serve their own beers as well as local and craft brews. A must when in Peterborough.
In town for a hockey game, nice place, pub feel. had a nice sampler and beer was pretty good. The staff were very friendly and the menu was surprising in a good way with typical pub food and then unexpected items. I had an Indonesian dish the waitress recommended that was really great. Cool place, stop by if in Peterborough.
Really, like the atmosphere of this place, it is just right, it has an old british pub feel to it. the service was good and the beer was good, food wasnt bad ethier they had a few guest taps from ontario brewers. the bar was nice and long and the staff was friendly, ask for the booth up the steps if you have about 4 guests or so, its a unique place to sit. If your in this area I believe this is a must stop. Worth the stop.
Rating from Hot Belly Mama’s half of the place. Cool southern US vibe in the place. The beers from the Olde Stone are pretty solid and the guest taps are decent, but the house beers make up for it. The food in here is awesome. Great Cajun style fare, and they’re not afraid of using some spice. Service was very good and they’re in tune with the idea that beer geeks are going to visit. I’ve been here twice and have thoroughly enjoyed myself each time. Next time I’m in the area I really need to get to St. Veronus, but it’ll be tough to pry me away from here.
Nice olde fashioned feel to the interior, with lots of old exposed wood. If you head downstairs you’ll see the brewing tanks and supplies on the way to the gents. Server was friendly and attentive. Food seemed okay - a little hit and miss, but on the whole quite nice. Selection included 4 of the pub’s own brews, plus a small handful of other craft brews.
(Selection/food ratings not based on connection to Hot Belly Mama’s.)
Interior is small, dark and old. But they make it work. It’s often quite busy here, but service is quick, friendly, and patient - I had two kids under 6 with me. In the summer, they’ll open up the front to the street. Food selection is not extensive, but what they do, they do well. It’s much better than the average pub. They offer a sampler of their beers, which is convenient. (They’re worth trying, particularly their seasonals.) Ideally, I’ll eat next door (if it’s not busy), where the (spicy) food is more to my taste, but where you can order Olde Stone brews.
Visited last August while camping up in Peterborough. Our group of four took a cosy table in the back but the place seemed quite large after looking about a bit, lots of pub-feel. Beer selection was tasty, their own being quite good and the food was good too (interesting menu). Would return if in the area.
