Basement pub with limited seating. Live DJ the night I went, playing very loud Dub music. Tap selection was good, featuring micro beer from Church Key, Wellington, St Ambroise, plus a few less interesting ones (Boddingtons). Scotch Irish was listed but was unavailable. Did not notice bottle selection. Small menu, but I tried the Black Bean/Chili dip and it was very good. Younger crowd, students and alternative types.
Located in the pub-and-restaurant part of Elgin St., this small and cozy pub is located in the cellar and offers the tbeer hunter a good opportunity to dine and chase Ontario ticks. The selection is reasonable for a place of this type and includes twenty-odd taps featuring mostly local brews. The staff are friendly and ready to help. The food is decent, too. Not very expensive and within a stone’s throw of the hotel I am staying right now, so I could be back tomorrow.
Cozy basement pub that had people in their 20’s,30’s,50’s and 70’s eating and drinking when I was there.
Glasses of beer are served in half full pint glasses-reason given is small place and lack of space.
Enjoyed myself and would go back again.
Definitely one of Ottawa’s better pubs. It’s a basement bar with dark wood and low lighting. The beer selection is Ontario focused with a mix of familiar and some more interesting. Servers are friendly and welcoming. There’s an interesting food menu as well. Good spot.
Small basement pub, a bit cramped. Low lighting, small copper tables, artwork on the walls. Around 20 taps, mostly local as well as Ontario’s usual suspects (Muskoka, Beaus, Wellington, Spearhead, etc). Friendly and efficient service. The perfect place for a long night of drinking
Nice crowded hole in the wall close to downtown Ottawa. Had a seat at the bar and got some decent recommendations on their various beers. Good food, nice thick cut fries. Prices were okay and on par with the city. Pretty good place, though can be hard to get a seat on a busy night.
Comfy, cozy, and lively even on a Monday night. Great vibe that is genuinely reminiscent of an English pub. No real ales though. Friendly service and although the selection isn’t that hot, they have enough to keep it interesting.
Small cellar bar. I had the Wellington County Arkell Best Bitter which I could not make up my mind whether it was off or not. Visit marred by the poorest pub performer I have ever come across, which was made worse by massive over-amplification. I visited on a Monday: perhaps he only performs then.
