We are regular customers at the Blackshop and this visit was to endulge in their Winterlicious Menu. We were not disappointed! The Goulash soup was excellent, (our favourite soup!) and both the Shepards Pie and Pork Tenderloin were delicious. The sugar pie was decadent and as always, the service top notch (thanks Tanya!).

Beautiful ambiance. Classy but not too fussy. Staff was wonderful. Food was absolutely amazing, right from appetizer to dessert.

I have been using the Blackshop for over 25 years ( in 3 locations) and this was overall the worst meal I have ever had. Very disappointing and in a way sad.

The food was well below the old standard in terms of quality and quantity.

The current staff have an obligation to keep the standards at a very good level.

Although the staff were attentive they lacked energy and vibrancy.

Asked when reserving if we could get a table that was not long as it is difficult to communicate.

Not only did they give us a square table, but they gave us our own little room.

All the ladies enjoyed their lunch and were happy with the atmosphere as well.
