                                                              The atmosphere in the main dining room is great but we were seated in the sunroom. It felt very isolated and like we were not a part of the scene. The menu choices were not quite what we'd hoped. While there were many options, each item seemed to have something that "didn't fit" ex. bruschetta with lemon aioli. The food we did get was ok. It wasn't bad but it wasn't exciting. Our waitress was great!

                                                              The Squire is a relatively new restaurant on Locke Street. Owned by the same owners of Ye Ol Squires. I have frequented the pubs for over 40 years and can not say enough about the food the service and the variety of beer. The Squire is slightly more sophisticated. The ambiance is great. Every server is extremely pleasant and do their best to make your time enjoyable. The food is excellent. The value is represented properly with what you get. I also prefer to go to local eateries over big name restaurants

                                                              My sisters and I dined here while in Hamilton when going to the theatre. Traffic was brutal and the hostess assured us our table would still be available. Our server knew we were in a rush and she had our drinks to our table in less than ten minutes and our food arrived shortly after. Her service was fast, efficient and professional. Cocktails were delicious and the food was hot and tasty. Wish we had more time. It is super cozy in the dining area.

Food will speak for itself as I can say I have tried almost everything on the menu. Cocktails are well made and true there quality. If you’re in Hamilton this place is a must try. I frequent this place often as the quality of food and the atmosphere is fabulous.
