  • Neighbourhood gem
  • Great for craft beers
  • Good for groups
We are a casual craft beer hall with a passion for fresh local food and awesome local beer!

We feature 24 rotating beer taps with 2-3 new beers tapping a week, and a menu that focuses on North American Cuisine​ — think a sophisticated twist on traditional Canadian comfort foods. We always pride ourselves on making all of our dishes in house from scratch, using the best local producers and farmers as much as possible.

Our mission is “Eat - Drink - Be Local! We aim to connect our community with local craft beer & breweries through fun experiences and fresh food.” We believe that every person that joins our team and every guest that walks through the doors becomes part of our family as we grow and evolve.

    We went there expecting just to have a pub type dinner. Ended up we ordered their 3 course special. Was great. Nice to venture outside our comfort zone. Staff were so nice and accommodating. Even made me a special cocktail I requested.

    We went to Free House as a big group on a Sunday evening. The place was super quiet/empty but the food service was fast & still fresh. The waitstaff and management took our severe nut allergy VERY seriously and did a great job at making sure they accommodated us with safe options.
