So happy this amazing restaurant is back open! The Chef has created a delicious variety of dishes for every person’s taste. Bar choice of specialty drinks is vast and A1. The servers are very attentive and make you feel almost at home! Our party tried a variety of apps, duck wings, dip as elk as the donuts. Incredible! Out entrees varied from fish amd chips, mushroom pasta, confit duck as well as the salad with the addition of fresh perch. Not that we had room, but could not leave before trying the creme brûlée! You will not be disappointed!

Attended during the Blues Festival and really enjoyed the 7 pm Saturday show. All 3 of us were very happy with our meals and cocktails, ordering duck wings, a burger and fish and chips. Great looking space and ambience.

I can’t believe how many people I told about the Brussels spouts. I mean c’mon brusselsprouts , they were amazing as was the rest of our meal. I requested the table for patio but wanted to hear the music so asked if possible where the music was, and WOW, did they ever. We were right in front of the band and we LOVED it. Highly recommended. Great staff excellent food incredible service, amazing music wonderful memories .

Reserved to see a fave local musician. In the course of events, discovered The Rich Uncle is a nice choice for an evening out. I like a small menu that does a good job with quality ingredients and eat out rarely because usually the food is disappointing. Not disappointed here! We were treated excellently by all the staff.

I ordered their special menu for the food made with local ingredients, oh my, that was incredible. We ordered the pork belly appetizer which was so yummy, and the trout also delightful! The live music made the whole experience complete, first time after covid. I’ll definitely go back!

We were lucky enough to get a reservation for inside dining the first night of Stage 3 and we are so glad we did. We have missed the Rich Uncle since it closed and are so pleased to see everyone back at it. The food was amazing and the service great. Everything was fantastic and we are looking forward to many more nights at our favorite Tavern.

Love the Rich Uncle Tavern!
One suggestion is patio heaters.
Very cold when we’re eating, but does not reflect on the restaurant.
So happy you are open again!!!

What an excellent experience at The Rich Uncle with my friends. All staff were extremely friendly and helpful with our drink and menu options. We started with some refreshing drinks from the bar and followed with the Dubliner & Jalapeño Doughnuts, what a delicious savoury appetizer! Our entrees were Duck Confit and Steak & Mushroom Pie. What a fantastic meal! I will be back soon!

Overall excellent! Food was incredible, and a fair price. My first time going, but will absolutely be making another trip.

The patio is next to a fairly busy street, so you can definitely hear the traffic. But overall excellent experience.

Love the new patio! This place is just as good as always with a menu that’s hard to pick from. We got the jalapeño bagels, fish and chips, and TRU burger. We recommend all three! Being on the sidewalk, be prepared for vehicles close by and loud cars/motorcycles.

I went tonight for the first time since they reopened post covid shut down and I can’t even tell you how great of an experience it was. The staff were all incredible and working so hard to keep things safe while still normal. The food was amazing and clearly made with such thought and care. My favourite place to eat locally. Oh and it also has the best decor and atmosphere just to top it off! This place deserves your business and won’t disappoint.

The host/owner pays attention to her own family only. There is only 1 server who isn’t very attentive. The host doesn’t help the server at all. It’s gross. I feel bad cause the food was amazing, compliments to the chef!!! I told my parents about our terrible service and they said that they came to this restaurant before covid and had the same experience. Terrible service, over priced food. Not very friendly unless you’re a friend or family member to the host. Wouldn’t recommend. (Unless they got new management and staff it could be better).

Glad that the Rich Uncle is finally open again. What a great evening. Our server Daniel from Newcastle was amazing. Charming, engaging and made our evening very enjoyable. The food was great. We charged the Shepherds pie, duck wings and truffle fries. All full of flavour and well presented. The maple old fashion was one of the best we ever had. If you are a gin lover you must try the special gin cocktail made with beefeater gin that’s on the menu. Saturday night they was live music that was truly enjoyable and added to the evening.
Great night all around
