About The Publican House

After years of planning and work to restore the historical building that inspired the brewery, The Publican House restaurant and tap house is opening its doors to you! The 170-year old building has been reborn using original elements wherever possible, with a modern twist to create a unique and inviting space.

With a focus on local, Chef Brad Watt brings a new spin to pub food featuring a wood fired pizza oven, an oyster bar and beer pairing options with daily specials.

The bar features all of our Publican House beers, crafted on-site, along with new specialty brews developed monthly and available exclusively at The Publican House. Rounding out the menu will be locally produced craft beer, wine and spirits.

The Publican House; your neighbourhood pub, built on history.

The KFC cauliflower was delish. Pizza was the best I have had in ages. We had a reservation for two and were seated immediately, however it was upstairs and being of mature years could not hear one another. We asked to be seated downstairs and had to wait 45 minutes. The wait staff were good at keeping us informed on progress. Once we reached our table the waitress tried hard but I think she needs training

We had a fabulous table on the first floor, window seat in an alcove. Our waiter was very attentive. Wish there was more of a choice of drinks, as in Smirnoff Ice or Whiskey Sours, as I do not drink beer, the beer that my husband had was too hoppy for his liking, would try an Ale next time. Mike had the Marge pizza (the dough wasn't quite cooked), but otherwise the taste was good, I had the fish and chips and it was good. We understood that everything is new and takes a bit of getting used to but it is great to have you in town as an eating out place. The décor is lovely, service great, definitely will be back.

The menu is short, but not bad. I had the special which was like a brunch burger: peameal bacon, sausage patty (from farmer's market sausage) and cheddar cheese with very little shredded cabbage and a couple of spinach leaves on a bun. The cheese sang from this sandwich. Was very rich and delicious. Looking forward to other daily specials from this kitchen.

We were very disappointed with the pizza. The crust was great but the rest was very bland. We had the marg and the mush. It's to bad, you have that great wood stove. The service was good no complaints.
