Now this really is an unprepososing (OMG how many ss's in that??), or should it be unprepossessing?? Well, whatever, here at the James St pub, having just debussed from Montreal and desparate for a beer this was the first place that we hit.

GOOD HIT!! This is very much a typical Canadian "Sports Bar" with its big screen tellies and offering the usual fare of beer and wings plus whatever else. But it was wings we were after, wings were duly ordered and so good they were we even had seconds - it wasn't even 2-for-the-price-of-one night!!

Good service, great wings (sweet and spicy) and literally a couple of steps from the #1 bus stop makes this well worth catching if you're in this neck of the proverbial woods ;)

Favorite Dish: Well, obviously the wings!!
