Local pub serving featuring food and friendly service. Sports and PPV's on TV and weekly entertainment by Trück.
On the site of the former Maplewood Pub.
This place has been around for ages but lately got a new name. It is near the recycling plant and is in an industrial area on the NS. Most of the clientele are working guys but on weekends and holidays it gets a small but eclectic mix of locals. I took Mrs. C for some Canada Day beers, and there were maybe 6 people in the place. The pub was a little bit dingy, but the staff were friendly enough. They had a decent pub menu including some inexpensive chicken wings on special. I kept thinking there were cheaper places to drink beer on the NS, but they would probably be crowded, so the extra cost was more of a 'privacy tax'.
A decent place to wet your whistle and enjoy a little pub grub.
Eaten here a couple of times and would do so again. I actually like the offbeat location near the North Van dump, nestled amongst industrial businesses. Nobody I mention the place to knows it exists. It would be easy to drive right past the joint and miss it if you werent actually looking for it. Solid pub-style food is what you can expect here. Its slightly better than what you might expect at your average lower mainland watering hole. Both times I have been there staff has hyped the wings. Both times I ordered them and found them to be fine but not worth mentioning as "really good" by staff. A Toasted pastrami and side salad for ten bucks was decent if not outstanding as well. A nearby table was served a calimari that definitely caught my eye as it appeared to be housemade. There's daily/nightly specials hovering around the $10 mark and apparently they do some fresh fish specials as supplies allow. Not a bad place to grab a quick lunch or an evening meal that wont bust your budget or have you waiting in line to be seated.
