Our mission is to create a chill, familiar, and enjoyable atmosphere, where you can escape, put the phone away, and forget about the world outside for a while. We want you to feel at home, to relax, to enjoy great food, beverages, friends, and music.
Our goal is to offer and exemplify the best of comfort food and true Canadian hospitality. Our friendly neighborhood pub invites all guests to settle in and linger over many selections of draught beer and cider, wine and spirits, music and dancing, and most of all a warm atmosphere and great conversation. Rooted in authentic pub-style flavours and locally sourced ingredients, the menu will consist of familiar comfort classics and imaginative twists on old-fashioned pub fare.
