Pool tables, cheap drinks, and joy. What else could you ask for? Perfect place to start, finish, or just spend your entire evening.

We were in last week. Ordered a couple
Drinks, one had rotten ingredients in the drink, think it was their OJ. We couldn’t drink it. The waitress never came back and engaged with us.
Then we ended up with a couple who was absolutely’ tweaking’ ( heroin type behaviours ) at a table near ours. The girl was slumped over and sleeping, jerking and flailing, the male friend wandering, speaking to people he didn’t know and was not making any sense whatsoever. Freaked out a few for sure.
The waitress saw this girl potentially overdosing in the corner and did nothing. We felt incredibly empathetic for that individual, however being in a drink and dining setting, it made us feel extremely uncomfortable.
To make things worse, the female who was under the influence was then served a drink after she ‘ snapped out of it’.

There’s tons of bars in Banff, I suggest going elsewhere.

I would give this a zero if I could. This is a terrible pub. When we sat down we were advised there were 5 beers on tap - all except one were terrible and considering this was a British pub none of them were English. We were also told that only ONE (the worst of the lot) was the $4 pint. We ordered and ONLY then were we told they were a cash only business and we could use the cash machine to pay for our drinks. I was tempted to go and walk to a bank to get the money as the pub pockets the service fee charged to use the bank machine. I went to the washroom and when I went to wash my hands, the hot tap was removed so we only got cold water. When you're washing your hands for 20 seconds, that water is bloody cold.

Take my advice, walk - no RUN away from this place and drink at the St. James Irish Pub down the street on Wolf.

Its a great bar with a brilliant atmosphere. Arguably the best bar atmosphere in Banff in August 2020. They have a Duke box so you can okay your own tunes, 2 pool tables which are fun and very cheap drinks compared to most other bars in Banff!!

The staff are great and it is a really fun time! It is a little dark and dingy but it's a good time!

Start your night at this lovely dive bar! They have a house draft which I am guessing is brewed by Big Rock Brewery, it is fantastic and only 4 bucks per pint! Cheap deep fried bar food like wings, onion rings ect. A little hard to find, it is inside a mall, it's ok it is part of the fun and adventure!

A great place as a primer or a finisher, the staff are fun, you can buy great Quebec beer (Labatt Black) for medicinal and mental health purposes! Was here for my birthday in Oktober 2019!

While the allure of cheap bar food and drinks sounds appealing, it’s not worth your time to stop here. The menu has maybe 5 things listed on it and service was incredibly slow. Our food was horrible. Just because you serve fish and chips and try to make it look like an old pub doesn’t automatically make you a British tavern. The fish that we had was still frozen on the inside and we only had one tiny piece in our basket each. Weird YouTube “fail” videos were being played on the screens. Also while we didn’t get food poisoning, the three of us who ate there (none of us has food sensitivities or allergies) noticed that we all had a bit of an upset stomach afterwards. There is a reason why this is the last restaurant to show under the recommended restaurants here on Trip Advisor. We will never come back.

We went in a little apprechensive after reading some of the reviews but were made to feel welcome.
There is a lot of sports memorabilia and the locals will talk if you want to mix with them.
The clientele is of all ages and I had a good Rickards Red ale but my wife did not enjoy her diet coke.
