The food was very good and the service was friendly, but the noise level is a bit high; I felt like I was yelling to be heard. In part that’s because it’s a very popular eatery in Stratford. Ensconced in the Queen’s Inn on Ontario Street, the “Boar’s Head Pub”:https://www.queensinnstratford.ca/
was our go to place before seeing a play the other night. When we left just in time to walk the couple of blocks to the theatre, there was quite a queue waiting to get in.
Happily for me this is one of the few pubs in town where I’ve asked for a bitter shandy and they not only knew what it was, but were able to produce one that tasted pretty close to what I’m used to in the UK. My sister ordered the quiche of the day with side salad and then helped me put a dent into the wild boar chili nachos: crisp nacho chips topped with fresh homemade wild boar chili baked with a blend of cheeses and served with salsa and sour cream. I’ve been spoiled with freshly made nacho chips at a Mexican restaurant in London, but these were pretty good and the topping was very tasty. I’ll be back to try out some of the other boar items on the menu – in keeping with the name of the pub. Maybe next time it won’t be so terribly hot outside and we can sit on the patio where it might be a bit quieter.
There is a parking lot attached to the inn and a large one next door at Shopper’s Drugmart if the inn’s is full. I parked on the street by the theatre and walked over.
