The Pint Public House is due to open on St Patricks Day, March 17th 2012. The Pint Public House is the latest edition to Vancouver’s pub scene featuring a menu of pub classics, a large selection of import and domestic beer, daily beer and food specials, happy hour and tons of TV's to watch your favourite sports.
I quite like this place. Just on the edge of the sketchy part of town the pub has a huge open feel to it if you sit at the bar. Large open windows let's the sun come in and gives you a chance to watch the various characters go by.
Word of warning, the beer and cider prices will knock your socks off. Last visit I ordered a pint of Lonetree Cider, something new I am told by the bartender to replace the same old same old Strongbow. A pint of this cider will set you back almost a ten spot, even made the bartender wince when I asked how much it cost.
Here's the trick or should I say the value of this place. Go during Happy Hour between 3-6pm. For every order of a pint of beer or cider you get "free" wings. That's right, for that 8.50 beer or near 10.00 cider you get a nice order of fresh, hot wings.
They have a long list of sauces to choose from, my favorite is the Thai Chili. These wings are good too, nice and meaty, and they give you at least ten to twelve big one's. So do the math. An order of wings at any other bar would be at least ten maybe eleven dollars. During Happy Hour along with your pint they are "free", so for me that is quite a good deal. I have ordered more than one pint and they are quite happy to give you more wings.
The staff are nice and attentive. There when you glass runs dry, friendly too.
Take note, my review is based only on the Happy Hours special and their wings I have never been there any other time and have never ordered anything else off the menu.
Outside Happy Hour specials if beer is that much the rest of the food better be amazing.
Went to this place before a Lions game as it's relatively close to BC Place. On the edge of gastown across from Tinsletown. The interior is quite dark and dingy and the layout is a bit of a L shaped. It just seems old and rundown pub even though it's relatively new. The menu is wing centric with 40 styles but after a few tastes, they all taste the same over sauced wings. Tried the wrap and they use naan bread which crumbles easily. Service was good for a game night with quick and cheerful service, value for what we got was way below average. I don't think a below average pub can last in Vancouver as there are better options nearby. Won't go back.
The Pint is a big pub in the old Honey location on the corner of Abbot and Pender. They serve your typical pub food such as wings, potato skins, burgers, sandwiches, etc. The food is pretty much what you'd expect. They have a decent beer select although I would like to see a bit more variety; less big breweries and more craft beers. On the weekends they charge cover after a specific time which seems kind of crazy to me. Overall The Pint Public House is not a bad place but I would only go if someone else suggested it, it definitely wouldn't be my first choice.
Went to Pint Public house. I was told that this is good place to get some good food and drinks. The server was not too interested in working as she took a long time to give us the menus and take our orders. Had the chicken wings which were not bad. Almost like Earls. Had the prime rib burger and chicken burger. Chicken burger was not good. Too dry and not enough toppings. Prime Rib burger was good. Had one with yam fries and other with Ceasar salad. Not sure if i will rush back. Drinks were decent. The place was not too busy but has lots of TV so can watch anything that you like.
Cold steak sandwich, indifferent server who seemed to struggle with smiling... Not a bad pub; beautiful decor, but pretty low quality food. I've been their twice and was honestly left disappointed each time.
Not a bad place to watch a game and down a pint, but I'll probably not be going back there for lunch any time soon.
