*****Sorry they have Closed – Updated July 2014*****
I find it hard to believe that I’m on the home stretch. Day 361 “WOW, time flies by when your having fun :).
Today while I was between appointments I realized that I hadn’t yet covered The Winchester Arms Pub here on 365 Things To Do In Orangeville, ON. This British pub serves some great food and I’m told they have awesome steak and Guinness pie. Since I’m not big a beer drinker I’ll have to take my friends word for this one. . The vibe inside is very cool and relaxed. Just what you look for in a British neighborhood pub and the even have a patio in the back for those hot summer days and nice cool nights!
I find the inside offers a cozy yet comfortable atmosphere for friends and family to meet for a bite to eat or a drink. Their friendly and bubbly waitstaff serve a wide variety of dishes and traditional pub foods . I’ve had the shepherds pie, burgers and fish and chips (huge portion), coconut shrimp in the past and each time they have been great. It’s is a great place to spend some time if you’re downtown Orangeville and looking for live music on the weekend, or some good food, good drinks and fun times with friends.
Pubs are British, and are just that…English style! In British fashion the drink is ale and not beer but they both. You will also find some other differences from the North American way, such as in the ale and beer, you then have foods like chips/french fries, pies/sandwiches and stews/soups. To get the full experience you will have to order the right pints/drinks with the right food :). That’s just the way it is.
here are some recommendations to the more refined palette: Imported ales from UK with fish+chips, stouts and bitters from Ireland with steak and meats pie, even whiskeys from Scotland with deserts are well paired. Now if your looking for Wing night then you will have to come in between 3-5pm…It’s not bad for the shift worker or the self employed.
My advise to anyone that is visiting for the first time, always order the daily specials 🙂
The Winchester Arms is located at 171 Broadway Avenue Orangeville, Ontario and can be reached at (519) 941-9533
