Anyone in the Mile-End looking for a unique English pub experience should pull up a chair at Bishop & Bagg.

Maison Publique

4720, rue Marquette, Montréal, QC H2J 3Y6

Located on Marquette, this resto/pub is brought to us by celebrity chef Jamie Oliver (but don’t expect to find him in the kitchen, that’s chef Derek Dammann’s space). Maison Publique, which is French for public house, or simply pub, will bring you British inspired dishes that will make your mouth water. They don’t have a set menu, so expect something different every time you go.

Ye Olde Orchard

For a casual pint of Guinness with friends, head west to Ye Olde Orchard Pub on Monkland in NDG. This unpretentious Celtic pub is a guaranteed good time, and has been serving good brew since 1996.

If you can’t get to NDG, try their other locations on Prince Arthur, de la Montagne and on Lakeshore in Pointe-Claire Village.
