Best Restaurants in Schomberg
Lining the main street in Schomberg is an assortment of places to eat that will wow your tastebuds! And the great part is that there’s something to suit everyone’s appetite. Whether you’re looking for a light meal and coffee or fine dining fare, there’s a Schomberg restaurant for you!
The Schomberg Pub
Set in a heritage home, The Schomberg Pub is one of the best and most Instagrammable restaurants in Schomberg!
The pub resides a stunning Victorian home that dates back over 100 years, where the area’s doctor lived. Even the original name of the pub, ‘Dr. Dillanes Pub,’ paid homage to its former owner.
Inside you’ll find an assortment of rooms, each with their own style and ambiance. My favourite room is full of character, as though it was ripped from the pages of Alice in Wonderland. The wallpaper has a whimsical flower pattern and hanging on the wall are a few friendly animal faces decked out in specs.
At the back of the pub is a cozy bar that is reminiscent of an old western. With its exposed wood beams and ceiling covered in coasters, you’ll want to pull up a seat and stay awhile. And in the summer, right off the bar room is one of the best patios in York Region! Wrapping around a towering tree and overlooking the Schomberg River, it’ll keep you coming back again and again!
The Schomberg Pub menu has a mix of classic pub fare and trendy dishes. Along with a great selection of beers, diners will find something for everyone in the family, even the littles. A few favourites include their Schomburger, pierogis, and fish tacos.
