Went with a group of girlfriends for brunch. Was unaware we had a time frame for dining. On our last order of drinks we were asked, “how fast can you drink those” as our table had apparently been booked for another seating. Staff was concerned about space when we asked to have a high chair added to the table. (Plenty of room was available.) Food and drinks were delicious, but when we were trying to box up some food to go we were rushed by the waiter to clear the plates, resulting in not all the food we had purchased being able to be packed up to go. Our waiter for the most part was very friendly and accommodating, but the fact that we were rushed out seemed to put a damper on the day. I understand with covid restrictions that restaurants can only accommodate certain amounts of people, but there was plenty of room upstairs and downstairs to seat other guest.

More of a dining experience, every dish is made to order so come prepared to relax and enjoy. If you’re in a hurry, come back another day, it’ll be worth it.

Great service and food. The dining room is very pleasant. My only issue was when making the reservation through your site, the only time options you offered were 5:00 and 5:30. We would have preferred earlier as we had to travel two hours after eating. The dining room was almost empty when we arrived and there were a few empty tables when we left at 7:30.

Amazing experience, can't wait to go back. The food, ambiance, service and music were exactly our taste. I could see going for a celebration or date night as much as I would enjoy grabbing pub food at the bar. If you are going for the music be sure to say so in your reservation, because the music is only the on lower level.

The service wasn’t as good as normal. My husband ordered his burger cooked medium and it was well done and my soda was completely flat but the waiter seemed very busy so he never came back to top off our waters or see if we needed refills. I have had many good experiences here but just wasn’t as happy with the service this time. I will still go back though.

Seated by the window. Serve staff brought water and asked about drinks. Wonderful menu selections as well as specials.
Wine, a great burger and fish stew with sausage and rice. Wonderfully prepared and delicious.

Had the fried mushroom caps and onion rings-divine! Then I had the chicken-au gratin potatoes were undercooked a little and broccoli was raw. Couldn’t cut it with a knife. Garlic sauce was oddly sweet. Husband had salmon. Came with a quarter cup white rice and four asparagus stalks. He was still hungry. All in all it was good but not great. Will try again but stick to pub menu next time. Dessert? Ah, yum! Creme brulee was heaven and choc teardrop fab!

Wonderful attentive waitress. Disappointed the harvest moon was not available. Charcuterie and pretzel boards were spot on. Fried haddock was blander than in the past, sirloin and Shepard pie crepes were excellent as always. Chicken crepe ok not great. Chocolate Cheesecake and lemon tart great but best desert ever was a few weeks ago. Those cream rolls were my favorite in all the years of dining there. Never disappointed with our favorite restaurant.

For the price the food wasn't great. I ordered my steak medium rare and it was medium to medium well. My sons was over cooked as well. The Haddock was okay, nothing special, but it made the chips soggy. The potato skins were dry and the wings were just okay. The service was fantastic, our waiter was very nice and the ambiance was great. Drinks were good but very expensive for the area.

Everything was great except it was extremely noisy as a group of people were yelling and talking all at once. We couldn’t hear the servers or our friends. It was brunch. Had it been a night with a band understandable. However not sure what could have been done. It wasn’t the F&T fault.

They have changed the pizza because when we went last yr it tasted straight out of Naples, Italy and this time it tasted like a bucket of salt was dumped on it. Was such a let down. But the service is great and the drinks are awesome and the poutine is top notch.

This is the second time I came with a friend to have a nice meal. This time it was to celebrate a birthday with someone I hadn’t gotten together with in awhile and was really looking forward to conversing over a good meal. There was a 3 piece ensemble playing that night and we couldn’t hear over the din of way too loud music for a small place. It was so annoying to sit there and yell at each other over the noise of the music. The wait staff moved us further away and still it was ridiculously loud! I won’t be back
