The pump is a very nice place to go hangout on a Saturday night! Elgin street has many options but the pump is one of my favourites. They have a dance floor that opens up if you’re into that sort of thing and no cover...More

This is by far one of my favourite spots in Ottawa. Lieutenant's Pump has a relaxed atmosphere that is perfect for meeting up with friends for drinks, but also has amazing pub food. The brunch is also delicious and the service is always excellent.

It was late on a Sunday afternoon after a long day walking in Gatineau Park, and cooking dinner for ourselves was not on the agenda. Our go-to destination on days like this is the Lieutenant's Pump - the patio if the weather cooperates - where...More
