I try to make it out here once a year - usually to sister spot next door, Hot Belly Mama’s, where you can grab the Olde Stone brews. Grab some authentic cajun and sample a couple of these - I tried the Coffee Porter and Or Dubh Stout, both of which were thick and excellent. Don’t pass this place by.
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.
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.
Went here before a tasting at a local Peterboroughian’s place. I walked in and didn’t really pay attention to the branch-off at the entrace...I guess I was just thinking that they both led to the same place. So I ventured off to the right into a place called Hot Belly Mama’s and I’m glad I did because it’s not too often that I have good Cajun-style food.
I had the blackened chicken sandwich with sweet potato fries and baked beans; I’d highly recommend those two sides, especially the baked beans. They had five beers available from the neighbouring Brewpub so I guess they have a good working relationship or maybe they just are the same place after all?
Started out with a deuce of half-pints and then moved onto a sampler after speaking with our server who seemed quite receptive to our Rating-ways. The beers were average for the most part except for the Olde Ale and the Stout which I very much enjoyed. Also a couple of mediocre guest taps. It’s also worth mentioning that it was very dark in the area that we sat in. I wouldn’t necessarily drive 1.5 hours to just come here from Toronto but if I’m ever in this 75,000 person town again I’ll definitely consider a re-visit. The location within the city isn’t really much of a selling point because it’s area is so small anyway but for what it’s worth it’s downtown and within stumbling distance to St. Veronus.
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.
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.

An nice brewpub in Peterborough. Solid linup of beers with a rotating seasonal beer as well. If you are looking for spicy food go next door to "Hot Belly Mamas" as all of the Olde Stone beers are available there as well.
Great brewpub in the heart of downtown Peterborough. I believe that they are linked with Hot Belly Mama’s. It was incredibly full, had to wait 20 minutes for a seat (not because of bad service, but because it was packed). There were literally no empty seats left. Food was better than I expected. I had the Brewbpub Stack (or something close to that). Excellent food. The peameal bacon was great. Being the beer drinker I am, I automatically ordered the darkest ale they had after scanning through their menu. I believe it is called the "Wild Olde Ale". Great beer! I was quite impressed. I’ll spare the ratings on the beer as I have done that in the appropriate section. But the service was excellent! Great beer, and great food! I definitely recommend going there. It’s very noisy though, so heed that warning if you’re looking for someplace quiet. A very limited selection of beer, but the point is to try out their privately brewed beer. Check it out if you’re in the area! One of the must-see places in Peterborough.
