Wow where to start. This establishment is in a touristy area,on the water, and I was expecting that it would be a bit more expensive. I was wrong it was VERY expensive. Pints of beer were $7.50 each, thank God we only stayed for one beer. We did not eat but the food was also very expensive. They did have a big selection of beer, but big doesn't equate to good selection
of beer.

Now for the bad news, and a first for me. They had a keg kick while we were there. A waiter came up to get a pint, of the kicked keg, and couldn't. The bartender looked at him and told him to use a different beer, and not tell the customer, because he probably wouldn't notice. (they were both lighter flavored beers.)

At the least it was dishonest, and at the most possibly fraud. HOW UNPROFESSIONAL, especially right in front of customers.

What a pleasant pub. Not too far from the Cruise ship berths, very close to the Delta Hotel, just a short walk from the Hilton, this homey little pub is easy to get to. Right in the middle of the shopping and business section of the centre of the City of Saint John it is part of a local restaurant operation known as the Grannon Hospitality Group.

Churchill's, on Church Street, is one floor below another Grannon's operation: The Church Street Steakhouse. Churchill's provides the bar facilities to the restaurant so the selection at the bar is offered upstairs at the restaurant. Saturday is busy but not crowed and the background music is the blues. Nice atmosphere.

The bottled beer selection is the usual with Moosehead, Labatts, Molson, and Bud as the typical choices but the real choice are the Pumps. There are 16 pumps. A couple are the macro boys like Bud Light and Moosehead light (which far outsell all the other lights combined). Some are imports like Boddingtons, Guinness, etc. but most are the hard to get or rare brews in these parts. Beers like Pump House's Burn's Scotch Ale, The original Moosehead Pale Ale Draft (reputed to be the favourite of the Moosehead employees), Garrison's Barrack Street Brown Ale, Clancy's Premium Lager, Keith's Honey Brown, and from Montreal McAuslan's St. Ambroise Cream Ale. Like I said rare and hard to get even around here.

None, and I mean none, of Grannon's operation slip when it comes to food and this pub is no exception. The menu is huge but it is the Pub Fair I go for. Stuff like the Rich Man's Fish and Chips. Huge homemade type fries - but the fish! Well, try a fillet of salmon in a Guinness Stout batter with clams on the side in the same batter. And sit at the bar. Mark is friendly and helpful. Heck, I'm hungry just thinkin' about it again! And for heaven's sake Beermail me and I'll meet you there.
