                                      Outstanding!!! I would call this quality restaurant food with pub style quantity and pub style price. The Bison meatloaf is out of this world. If possible, the service was even better than the food. Do yourself a favour and go.

                                      We heard this was a great new restaurant to try, we booked six for Mothers Day We could only book for two pm, once we arrived we were seated in front of the bar off from the entrance, felt like a walk way. Very loud and people constantly walking past too go to the toilets, bar staff making drinks talking loud. The website didn't explain the two course meal for $ 30. per person, definitely not worth it, food was presented well and was tasty. 4 adults 2 kids $300.00 Overkill

                                      Came here for Mothers Day Brunch- food was great and service was fantastic! We wanted to sit outside under the sun but the patio was closed, they were so accommodating and sat us inside one of their sunnier rooms. Overall, it was a great experience and I’d definitely come back!

                                      This is our third time there in the last couple of months. We couldn’t be more pleased. Attention to detail, spot on. Server and staff are extremely friendly, knowledgeable and curtious. Prices are very reasonable. Food is well presented and always good. Try it, you will not be disappointed. Rick

                                      Our table was very close to the checkout, customers were lined up behind my friends seat, the server was holding the debit machine over her head. Also made it very difficult to have a conversation. I booked online asking for a table of 4 and only had 3. A 4th person would have had to move to allow customers to cash out. I'm really not sure why 3-4 tables had come up the area to pay as our payment was made while sitting at our table. I would recommend the Squire Pub to friends with the notation that they insist on a different table. Neil

                                      It was an extremely busy day as it was one of the first “nice enough to sit on the patio” days of spring. We were seated at the side patio and had great service. The food was fantastic, they made our substitution request easily and were prompt bringing us our drinks and food despite how busy it was. We will definitely be coming back!

                                      Nice renovation from the previous restaurant ( which had been quite elegant- but COVID was its demise). Service was appropriate - no waiting but attentive and very courteous; a d food was excellent.

                                      Had the fish and chips. Very good. Had 2 pieces and my only comment is that as the chips were underneath the fish they were a little less crispy

                                      The food served was not very warm, the fries we barely warm, the steak sandwich was very tough - it however was my fault, the server asked us how are food was and I said it was ok - I could not even eat what I was served, again totally my fault, we will try it again, I assume this was a “one of” - the restaurant was full, indicating the food normally must be very good - we will be back, we loved the ambiance

                                      Wonderful experience! Beautiful atmosphere and the food was amazing!! Huge portions and hot and fresh. Our server, Justin, was great! Very friendly and attentive. Also met Tommy, the general manager, super nice as well. Can’t wait to return and to experience the patio when the weather gets nicer :)

                                      This is my second visit at this location and the food has been excellent. I visit with my family and so we have sampled much of the menu individually and everyone says that the food is above average and great value

                                      Service was great. Shrimp and chicken were very dry. Probably just a bad night. Not a problem on previous visits.
