Featuring a plethora of interesting 1920s-inspired design details, the Dominion Square Tavern is a cut above your average downtown eatery. Enjoy simple classic fare or british dishes such as mussels and fries, Cornish hen, scotch egg or bangers and mash in a warm, inviting atmosphere. Top it off with a sinful serving of sticky toffee pudding. A full bar, cocktails, wine and beers await.

Musique d'ambiance beaucoup trop forte. Type de musique ne correspond pas au décor intérieur du commerce. La musique devrait correspondre à la musique des années 1920 - 1930.

Food and service were top-notch. The cuisine was definitely continental (excellent bone marrow, for instance) but suits a variety of palettes. Wine list is very Europe-focused and maybe a hair overpriced but well selected. When full, the restaurant is pretty loud.

Our waiter created a non-alcoholic digestif for me! It was excellent. I wish I knew how he made it so I can order one next time. He had a beard. We sat on the couch at the back. He served us in French and English.

Great ambience, casual, long bar, food was above average yet simple. Good service staff seemed knowledgeable. Only minor issue is the noise level is high, hard to have a conversation. Would recommend, great location across from Dominion Square. Indoor parking for $10 next door recommended, little street
parking.

Cadre très agréable, mais malheureusement trop bruyant . Niveau sonore trop important, difficulté de s’entendre et donc fatigant
Dommage car taverne avec beaucoup de cachet.

Very good food had by all. Daily special was excellent!!
The table was small but that turned out to be a good thing, allowing all 6 of our party to converse.
(Impressed that the waiter kept track of who took what when splitting the bill.)
Made for a very enjoyable evening for all!!

I went for a business lunch. The food was very good. I had a beet salad with goat cheese. My only issue was that the service was a bit slow, particularly for lunch. Without an appetizer it still took 1:30 hours and it was difficult to get the bill. But the overall experience, atmosphere, noise level etc was good.

Great ambience created at this up-fare English tavern. My only complaint (minor) was the service was mediocre. No feeling of welcoming nor interest in serving.
Food and drinks were outstanding and quite pricey. I would argue that this is the standard rates in the surrounding area.
I would recommend.

Excellent menu with something for everyone. We had the mussels (in bacon & cider) and salmon dishes, both were great. The "Sea" Ploughman's was a real treat as a starter!! Excellent meal all round.

The food was delicious, drinks were nice though not very strong, lighting lovely, and staff fine. One problem: the music! It was much too loud, and entirely the wrong style for the atmosphere. The music was crashy/noisy sort-of pop or something else too modern and really ruined the otherwise attractive effects of the soft lighting, high ceilings, comfy furnishings, and historic features.
