From the Emerald Isle, the Mcgowan/McGrath clan planted their roots in the picturesque town of Ailsa Craig 5 years ago with the dream of creating a authentic pub for all to love and enjoy. Today, they bring you the much anticipated Crown & Turtle Pub. Your home away from home. A place of comfort, family and friends.
Adam McGowan and Christina McGrath are passionate about The Crown & Turtle Pub!
It’s been quite a wee journey to bring this warm and cozy Pub in the heart of Ailsa Craig, Ontario, Canada.
The Crown & Turtle Pub is owned and operated by Adam McGowan and Christina McGrath who, having a passion for detail, have created a true Pub experience. The young couple has worked hard to wowed our patrons with world class gastro pub fare including our famous Fish & Chips, Liver & Onions and Beer Battered Fried Pickles to name a few. Besides our standard restaurant and pub fare we offer a wide assortment of daily specials to provide tasty variety for our customers. We highly recommend making a reservation to avoid disappointment.
Our pub provides a wee bit of present day Ireland & Scotland in a very Scottish area of Ontario. No wonder we have been jammed since our opening on 21 July 2017. Over 100 whiskies from around the world, and the list keeps growing weekly. Belly up and ask Adam for a bar side whisky tasting. You can be sure Adam will share his knowledge and a few whisky tales from his whisky travels and experiences. All this in addition to a well stocked bar.
Our custom bar and tables were built by Andy Constantine, master carpenter with old restored wood and new. From the original tin ceiling, antique chandelier and custom cabinets helps to create the warm atmosphere.
The main pub accommodates 50 people with a choice of the high pub tables or lower dining tables. The Dram Room accommodates 35 people for a more intimate ambiance for your private celebrations, whisky tastings and functions. In the warmer months, our patio accommodates up to 80 people complete with an outdoor bar and live music.
