Dining suggestions for Bancroft, Ontario?

  • h

Hi! Once again we're going to be visiting our son up at summer camp, just outside of Bancroft, Ontario. We've been doing this for years and have yet to find a decent restaurant in the area for dinner. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!

  1. There's a small Italian restaurant on the main strip in Bancroft, right across from the Best Western Swords Motor Inn. Can't miss it since it shares the same parking lot as the local McDonalds. Every year when we go up to Bancroft for the Tall Pines Rally, we stop in for a big dinner to fuel up for all the weekend hiking. I also remember there being a small menonite run store just off the main strip, it's in the strip plaza connected to the Shell gas station. They sell homemade pies, butter tarts, jams, etc... You might want to try the Black Forest Schnitzel House on RR3 too.

    Sorry, but it's otherwise slim pickings in Bancroft, mostly greasy spoons and fast food chains.
