On a visit to London, Ontario, an aunt and I checked out a pub in the Hyde Park neighborhood. It looks to be an old yellow brick farmhouse around which a subdivision has sprung up. We were given the choice of sitting in the lounge bar or the dining room and we chose the latter. Service was swift and efficient. Despite the pervasive television screens dotted around the rooms, they were not as much a distraction as they are in many pubs.
Although not on the cheap side, the menu has a good variety and the food is generous and very tasty. Everything we saw going to other tables looked delicious and we were very happy with the fish and chips ($14.99) we both ordered. It came with two large pieces of fish in a light beer batter, chips, tartar sauce and coleslaw that we both devoured. This may end up as my new local pub. You can make reservations but they are not required and there is a large parking lot surrounding the pub.
