Server/service was amazing! Food and drinks were really good! My friends and I had a really good time! It was the best birthday outing I’ve ever had thank you for being apart of it!

Really good ambience to have a chill night with your friends on a night out. However, food quality is moderate that is your basic pub food but overall good. Music was really good, enjoyable, & overall a great place to hang out with your friends.

Server friendly, food was disappointing, went with someone for their birthday, food wasn't served at same time, had to send burger back, it was under cooked and pink inside.

Good food and atmosphere. Terrible service. Our server came over to take drink or food order and didn’t see her again for maybe 20 minutes. Didn’t check on us when our food arrived. Sat with empty plates and glasses for a very long time without having the table cleared or being checked on. Would of ordered another drink but our server never came around. Had to walk up to the bar to get our bill. It was disappointing as the food was pretty good and nice patio.

Very cute patio setting, small menu but enough variety for pub food if your just looking for somewhere to hang out. Would ask for a booth next time, 3 people on half a picnic table was a bit tight.

They told us we only had a 90 minute window, yet it took the server 20 mins to actually serve us. She never refreshed our drinks, when our food arrived we didn’t have cutlery and by the time we actually got cutlery, our food was cold. The food was disgusting. Took our serve 30mins to grab is our bill. Not a good experience at all.

Glad I remembered the patio at Pauper's for a meeting with my brother, prior to a joint visit to the bank. Well set up to deal with pandemic restrictions. He hadn't been for a number of years but the food was as good as he remembered, ditto for me. Will definitely go again.

Really nice drinks!!! The service was great, probably seating in the gazebo wasn't the best spot? but I mean, it was fine.

Definitely, coming back!

It was a nice pub but 60 for nachos, a single of wings, and a tall boy was steep.

Paupers Pub
Responded on June 19, 2021

Hi Bob, Sorry, the math isn't quite working out. This should be $45 including tax. This sounds fair to me. Even with a 20% tip its still less than $60. - Adam, GM

Hi Ming We're sorry if you arrived at Paupers to find it is closed. We've made every effort to communicate this outwardly, and it has been the case in Toronto that all restaurants have been closed for four months now due to COVID-19 restrictions. Our hands are tied. I'm disappointed that you felt this mishap warranted leaving a 1-star review considering this has been the norm for so long now. - Adam, GM

The service was very slow. They kept forgetting my order. Then taking another while to retrieve it. Also, the out door patio isn’t all heated. So if you book an appointment be prepared to sit in the cold.

Server was a bit of a dick. He seemed generally annoyed with our presence the entire time. No clue what we did other than order drinks and food. I’m disappointed in my self for tipping him so well considering his attitude.
