A friendly and casual atmosphere awaits in “the Pub” in Merrickville. This 1860s European Pub in the landmark building at the corner of Main (Hwy 43) and St Lawrence (Hwy 15) offers a warm welcome.

This heritage building, which also includes the Baldachin Inn was once the largest department store between Chicago and Montreal, and later a millinery. The Pub is named after Harry McLean, a one time Railway Builder and eccentric Millionaire in the early 20th Century who owned the building.

The pub carries imported and domestic beers, a good selection of wines (including some Canadians) and homemade eats, including Lunch and Dinner specials daily. You’ll also find a selection of spirits and single malt scotches. Entertainment is featured on Saturday Nights.

Foods from Harry McLean's Pub (Merrickville)


2009 Nov 16
After a recent Fall Pilgrimage to Merrickville and a required visit to Mrs McGarrigle’s - Mrs McGarrigle's we decided to stop in at Harry McLean’s for a bite and a refreshment.

Harry McLean’s Pub has a great traditional pub atmosphere, and a menu that features all the pub classics, but also has a nice selection of homecooking as well.

The staff are friendly, the owner talkative, and the food filling… not to mention a great assortment of Ontario beers and wines... several available by the glass. They even offer a wine that is blended and bottled exclusively for The Baldachin Inn (their bigger property next door to the pub).

“The Man” and I chose to go with the Weekend Roast Beef Special... which came with veggies, roast potatoes, and a nice horseradish. The cut was good, but not exceptional… still with the scarcity of Prime Rib these days in Ottawa Restaurants, it was a nice treat.
