When we stay in Algonquin Park we quite often venture out to other cities, towns, communities to see what’s going on. We like to go west of the Park to Huntsville and sometimes on to Bracebridge. Bracebridge is a really nice town, population approximately 17,000. I had read about a pub so of course, we had to go and check it out. The name of the Pub is The Griffin Pub, it’s over 100 years old (used to be a law office) in a little alley and hard to find! We drove through town twice before we saw the small alley, called Chancery Lane, leading to the restaurant. Finally we found a place to park and walked to the alley and up the alley until we came to the Pub. (photo above is the alley and the restaurant is on the left)
We had a great lunch and tried some beer and had an enjoyable time. It’s very unique, inside and out.
I had also found out that there was a Brewery downtown as well so after lunch we walked back down the alley to the downtown core and took another side street to Katalyst Brewery. I love the old building it is in and we were happy to stop in and try some beer.
Then we decided to drive around the area and saw a sign for a place called Wilson’s Falls so we decided to stop and take a walk along the river. The waterfalls were lovely (but small) and the photos were better from across the river than they were after parking and taking a walk.
Last stop before heading back to the Park was High Falls and Little Falls a place we have been to before and it’s quite a great spot to hike around.
So that is that…………nice area if you are in the area lol. See you soon…
