It was by way of these very reviews that I found Cellarman's. The front of the building is recessed back in an alcove from the sidewalk, which adds an initial charm to the place. Upon entering the quaint and cozy decor of a freindly neighborhood pub welcomes you and you come to feel comfortable and insulated from the world out there. I felt as though I left my troubles back outside on the sidewalk.
There's an extensive selection of brews and ales for the connoisseur, it would almost seem a sacrilege to order a mainstream, run off the mill, bottle of domestic beer, which i'm sure is probably available, but I didn't even entertain the idea.
The waiter was courteous and considerate. I was with my father in his late 80s and we had both ordered the jambalaya and the waiter commented that the dish did have a bit of spice to it, to be sure my father would be ok with it. My father didn't want to order a drink with his meal, but the waiter, in his attentiveness, brought him water and said "here is some water, just in case"
THAT IS CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!
The dish was delicious and the portion was just enough. I was very very satisfied with every single aspect of the experience.
Prices were about middle of the road as restaurants prices go and actually became irrelevant, given all that comes with the experience.
I will return and as long as my expectations, which have been set very high (and it's their own fault, they're the ones that set the bar so high....lol), I will continue to return and I can see Cellarman's becoming my favorite eatery to visit when I come up to visit my father.
Already looking forward to my next visit.
Cellarman's is one of the best places to go for a british style meal. Even my folks in their 80's go monthly for the Guinness and curry, salmon and chardonnay. Most patrons are regulars and the food and service is second to none. Check out the evening entertainment! Oh to get that covetted corner spot one day! Mary from Creemore :)
