Tartan Pub in Orleans: Good for a pint, as a buffet not so much!

Wallace Tartan Tie

Perhaps Tartan’s Buffet is better after a few drinks? The Tartan’s hard to find tucked away in this tiny strip mall If we hadn’t been invited, we’d never have found it at all. For me, the buffet’s only fair and the decor’s kind of tired But those servers in their kilts really have to be …

The Gun Pub at Chiddingly: out of the way but out of this world!

Perhaps it is because pub food here in Canada generally tends to be somewhat ho-hum that I was consistently surprised at the quality of food served in many of the pubs in England. On a recent trip, we ate in almost half a dozen different pubs over a ten day period and each was at …

Wellington GastroPub doesn’t disappoint – nor does it really shine!

Lamb Sirloin & belly pork with fingerlings and vegetable

Pretty Good Grub at Wellington Gastropub! A gastropub is about gourmet food and great beer, And if that’s the case, you’ll find both are right here. The decor is quite cozy and the food’s above par Though to find one that’s better you won’t have to go far But still I conclude that this one is …
