Excellent meal and dining experience! The highlight was sampling a handful of scotches from the collection of 600+ whiskies. Live entertainment was very good too.

Thank you for our boxing day break. The mussels in coconut thai curry were very tasty and just woke up your taste buds enough without setting your mouth on fire. The sloppy haggis was a fine dish to remind me of those St. Andrew's dinners that I have been to. We will definitely be back and the next time we may even bring our new relatives.

Hello Stephanie.
My family and I had the absolute pleasure of dining at The Dam Pub on Monday evening.  We were celebrating my husband's birthday.  After seeing the restaurant featured on 'You've gotta Eat Here', I thought it would be a perfect place for his birthday as all of his favourite things were on the menu.  We were not disappointed.  In fact we were over-the-moon with how wonderful the food was and the service! (you )  You gave us the story of how you got started with the Pub and we are so glad you did take the chance and have worked so hard to make it a success. I just wanted to thank you for the excellent meal.We all are looking forward to returning to The Dam Pub and hope to make your acquaintance once again.

Stephanie...I hear you are the boss and know even more than Tina does about scotch...amazing!!! Have driven by many times but finally twisted my bud's arm and we landed in heaven last night as we opened the doors and went inside.....OMG!!!After getting over my shock and awe....sat at the bar and was nicely attended to by Simone and ordered some Innis & Gunn beer ...on TAP even! And some fabulous fries.Got chatting with Tina before the crowds came in and had some  lovely scotch before we ventured out in the snow to head to the cottage. SO glad I do NOT live in the area cuz I would be working through your catalogue as my ONLY bucket list!!! But will be back soon (the gods willing) for some more sampling....To you and your crew ...thanks for heaven!!!

Stephanie, Tina and crew,

I want to thank you for treating our Peterborough Companion of the Quaich road-trip gang to your wonderful Thornbury hospitality.  We had heard of your pub through our mutual scotch whisky connections – so before we even got there, your pub had taken on an almost mystical quality.  Who could believe that any bar would have over 500 whiskies available?  But it was more than true – your collection was supurbe. All of us were able to sample ones that we had heard of but could never find, or even ones that were new to us.  It was a hoot passing our drams around the table and discovering “new favourites”.  And the food – fantastic!!  I’ve been telling everyone to make sure to save room for dessert if they ever visit you.  Again - thanks for your creative approach to whisky, and for your wonderful hospitality and story-telling.  Please all pass on our thanks to your staff. We’ll be back!

Just a quick note of thanks to the Dam Pub for the great time we had last night!....the warm, friendly hosts and hostesses, fantastic ambiance,  as well as the great entertainers - the pipers, dancers, poetry and David Leask were all superb...and of course the food, drafts and drams left us and our guests from Huntsville with fond memories of a great night...well done to all involved and....   Many thanks,   Brad and Deb McCann

The Dam Pub is truly our community restaurant and bar. The service is tops...even when the restaurant is busy. The food's great: authentic pub fare, or great fine dining, and "the price is right". The Scotch and Irish whiskey menu is second to none, so you can experiment without having to buy an unaffordable bottle! As for the fine music...find out for yourself! This place is unique and we are lucky to have it in Thornbury-Clarksburg. It's always a hit when we take out-of-town friends there for lunch or dinner.

PB and Family, Clarksburg.

Hello there -

My husband and I are from the London area and had the opportunity to spend a few days in Thornbury at a friend's condo there.  We also had the honor of celebrating my husband's 55th birthday at your Pub last Tuesday evening.  It was an evening to remember .... wonderful!

Since April of this year and because of several health related issues, I have found it necessary to eat vegan/vegetarian.  Moving into the vegetarian realm of eating has been a very trying and difficult transition because of the lack of imaginative and/or tasty dishes offered when dining out.  Also, coming up with new recipes at home has been a particular challenge and a real learning curve for me.

I wanted to take this opportunity to tell you how much I enjoyed your vegetarian curry dish.  It was an absolutely amazing dish and a real treat for me. I ate the entire portion served, savoring every mouthful and then actually scraped the dish when I was finished!  Wow, what an incredible mix of flavors.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I just wanted to let you know that my mother who moved into Errinrung Nursing Home in the Spring invited some of her friends up for a visit and she brought them to your establishment.  The ladies had nothing but good things to say about the food and the service (Linda- I believe).  They thought at first that it was too much food for old ladies(their words - not mine), but they managed to finish it off. 
Thanks Again

To Stephanie, Suzette and the entire Staff,

I was there last Friday with my extended family and grandson while we were on holiday.
It was an amazing time, wonderful food and some good single malts.
Truly a wonderful experience.
I shall make my way back from Toronto.
Thank you.

Gord and Sandy;

Earlier today, a bon vivant friend had the most flattering thing to say about the Dam Pub Friday lamb shanks special so Rosi and I went.  We want you to know that we are glad that you two flunked retirement.
Congratulations and best regards,
