A true Canadian establishment filled with warmth and character, the Black Dog features the very best in quality, local foods prepared with simplicity and style. We have more than 20 unique draught beers, and a great selection of bottled beers, each featuring local, regional and international brews. Our beverage selection is rounded out with an award-winning wine list and an impressive collection of single malt whisky, bourbon and Irish whiskey.
The consummate host, Ted McIntosh has been involved in the hospitality industry in many capacities for more than 35 years. A longtime wine and spirits enthusiast, and a passionate quality beer lover, Ted has worked for two breweries, a winery and imported single malts into Canada. Ted is also a graduate sommelier with a very comprehensive understanding of Ontario VQA wines in particular. No surprise then that the pub has been the recipient of the VQA Wine Award each year since it opened. Ted's passion for single malts and Irish whiskies is demonstrated in the breadth and length of the pub's scotch and whisky list. It is not unusual to see Ted decked out in his kilt of magnificent McIntosh tartan and accompanying regalia conducting a scotch nosing for a table of guests.
In excess of 20 beers on tap is no small achievement especially since a number of the beers that we sourced may only have been available to us if we actually took to the road and fetched them ourselves – which we have done in the past and continue to do when necessary. Ask for a sample of any of our draught beers. It’s a great way to discover a new favourite. As is our annual beer festival, OctoBEER, when all of our beer and cider reps are on hand to provide samples and chat with beer lovers.
We are located in Bayfield Ontario, approximately one hour and 15 minutes north west of London Ontario between Grand Bend and Goderich on the shoreline of Lake Huron.
