We're going to Peterborough this Saturday night, and are looking for a brew pub or bistro with a good beer selection, decent food, and comfy chairs. Previous postings indicate that St.Veronus and the Olde Stone Brewing Company are our best bets. Any other suggestions? Thanks in advance for your help!

    You'd do right by those previous posts. St. Veronus has a great beer selection (a lot of stuff off the beaten track) and serves up tasty, interesting meals. Olde Stone brews their own beer (sampler of their four standards plus the current seasonal is available) and offers up decent pub fare. Both are fairly comfortable spaces.

    McThirsty's Pint has 20 taps, so you can likely find something you like to drink there. Good chicken wings (2-for-1 on Fowl Monday and Wingy Wednesday, so one of my favorite stops), decent pub food.

    The Ossia on Hunter St. has been recommended by friends, but I've not been. Across the street is the Only, good beer selection, okay food. The Publican is a straight up brewery, no food, but some interesting brews, you can get cans or growlers to take home. Try the Square Nail Pale Ale if its available. Hoppy. Black Horse Pub is a fail on a couple counts.

      I'd reccomend Hot Belly Mama's. It's a cajun restaurant which has some great food. The plus here is they serve Olde Stone Brewing Company beers including their sampler. You get 5 - 4 ounce glasses of their various beers. It's located in the same building as Olde Stone Brewing - just hang right when you head in the doors.

        I second Hot Belly Mama's. It is one of my favourite restaurants anywhere!!!

        Thanks to you all for your recommendations - it's much appreciated. We arrived late Saturday, tired and cold from spending the day at the Tall Pines Rally in Bancroft. Instead of heading for the beery fabulousness offered by St. Veronus, we got lazy and went to the Boston Pizza beside our hotel. We should have known better, but the frostbite must have clouded our judgement. ;>) Won't be making that mistake again. Anyway, we look forward to a return visit to Peterborough, where we can try your recommendations. Cheers!
