Food and Drink
There are so many good places to eat and drink close to the cottage so we have just given you a few recommendations for places we go back to time and time again.
Rhino’s Roadhouse at Bewdley Map
A Bewdley institution for too many years to mention this is the place to go for amazing wings. Recently rebuilt following a fire but the food is just as good as ever in the clean, fresh restaurant or outside on the patio. Go for the breakfast too - Website
Muddys Pit BBQ at Keene Map
Muddys may be a bit out of the way but it is so worth the drive! The best burnt ends I have ever eaten. But the brisket and beans (and everything else) are just out of this world - Facebook
Olympus Burger at Port Hope Map
If you fancy a great burger this is the place to go. Regularly top of the Trip Advisor ratings for restaurants in Port Hope. Canadian Living rated them as having the best burger in Canada in 2017. Look on their website for the secret menu too Website
Rey Ray's at Port Hope Map
One of our latest discoveries this taco shack does amazing food. The owner makes all the tacos and the fillings are so tasty especially the Chicken Tinga. As for the polenta fries - just outstanding. Eat on the deck or take out. Website
Craft Food House at Cobourg Map
A new discovery in 2017 this breakfast/lunch place is gaining a reputation for locally sourced, healthy, delicious food. We've only manged lunch so far but will definitely be back to try the breakfast. Website
Local No90 at Port Hope Map
Opened in 2017 this bar and kitche prides itself on using locally sourced ingredients. They even hold a weekly farmers market there on Saturday mornings. Website
St Veronus Café & Tap Room at Peterborough Map
If you love Belgian beers and food you have to go to St Veronus. This was one of the first bars we discovered when we first visited the area and the variety of beers and knowledge of the serving staff is unparalleled. Whenever we are here a trip to St Veronus is always fitted in. The burgers are amazing and so are the mussels. But whatever we have chosen we have never been disappointed - Website
And last but not least the local Chip Trucks...
The closest is at the tennis courts at Gores Landing on the junction of Hwys 9 and 18. Map
Only open Friday - Sunday it does the best chips and poutine.
The other chip truck is Brown Eyed Susan's Map
Brown Eyed Susan's is at Bailieboro next to the gas station on Hwy 28 - Website
