Bumpkins Restaurant and Lounge?

Has anyone ate here before? I'm looking for a good private room for a customer Christmas dinner and their facilities look like they would work for me. Any insight on the food or recomandations for other private room dining options would be greatly appreciated.

  1. Bumpkins was a good place to eat when they were on Parliament St, many decades ago. I wouldn't be inclined to go near the place these days.

    1. The private facility is quite nice with its own bar. The owners are incredibly friendly and go out of their way to accommodate their customers. The cuisine is pretty predictable. They do have the best crusty dinner rolls I've ever had...but if you're interested in creative food, artful or artful presentation, you'd better give it a pass. The food is okay but predictably so. Have lunch there is my best suggestion. If this is of interest to you, they are fine "corporate citizens" in that they support their community. Hope this helps.
