SIR JOHN'S PUBLIC HOUSE
343 King Street, East Near Market Square, Kingston
Sir John's Pub occupies the building used by Sir John A. Macdonald as his law office from 1849 to 1860. Macdonald began his political career during this formative period and of course later became Canada's first Prime Minister and is credited as being the individual most responsible for Canada's Confederation in 1867. The pub has a cozy atmosphere and reflects the style of the mid-nineteenth century when it was occuiped by Macdonald. It is only fitting that today the building should be a Scottish pub heralding Sir John's Scottish origins and his fondness of the drink! The pub features a good selection of imported and local beers and a large selection of Scottish single malts. The menu is value-priced and features traditional Scottish dishes and contemporary casual dining. Customer favourites include the fish & chips, the Angus beef burger plate, the turkey pot pie, the lamb shank and the pub's famous haggis fritters or vegetarian haggis! A Sunday Brunch is offered from 10:30 to 2:30 and features a variety of tasty dishes for just $10 each. A variety of lunch items are available Monday to Saturday for just $8. A beautifully decorated patio faces King Street during the spring, summer and fall.
