Step down from trendy Elgin Street to the Lieutenant's Pump for a delicious pub meal. Main dishes draw in the crowds. You'll find a wide range of culinary creations, from Thai Green Curry Chicken to veal, liver, bacon and onions. The decor is typical pub style with lots of wood panelling and brass. For the gamesman there is a pool table well as a shuffleboard court. During the summer months, the patio is a popular spot for relaxing with a beer and watching the world go by.

"Went here for breakfast. A basic breakfast will run you $5 and there is sufficient food incl. some quality toast. If you order sausage, you'll only get one link but it is a great sausage! Consider ordering extra. The ham was thin is you like it thin. For the money, it was great. ALL the waitresses are beautiful so even if the food wasn't good I'd still be eating there. The ketchup bottle was a bit sticky. "
The pump has got to be the best restaurant in the glebe area. I go every saturday and sunday with friends, and always enjoy myself. I often wonder why people aren't willing to wait 15 minutes for the excellent (and affordable!) brunch specials. I also couldnt help but notice how attractive and well dressed all the servers and hostesses are, not to mention friendly and sociable! See you next week, girls.
Our teacher brought us to this pub for a LINC English class to learn Canadian cultures. We were curious about the foods and drinks on the menu as we had known little about them before. We ordered as many different foods and drinks as we could and shared together. However, we ordered too much to finish.
Foods were great! I like them, especially the BBQ zucchini and other veges, the Alberta roasted ribs, very tasty!
For sure I will go to the L'sPump again with my friends.
I have eaten at this Pub/Restaurant a number of times. The menu conatians items that you would not normally see at a pub.
For example, the grilled vegetable salad is excellent with vegetables that are hot but still crisp, eggplant steak, and ceasar salad with roasted garlic cloves. For the meat eater, try the Alberta beef ribs for $7.95 - a value comparable to nearly $20 at some other poplar restaurants.
They have a good selection of beer with a high enough volume so it is always fresh. the staff are extremely friendly and provide good service.
We come in many Sundays for the Prime Rib Dinner special. We are served by the same girl every time and she is very pleasant, friendly and efficient. The 'Queens Room', with a picture of the Queen up at the bar, is cozy and warm. Our only complaint is the couple of times we have arrived for Roast Beef at 8pm and they had already run out.
Too many pubs are a designers slick rendition. Not the Pump, it has a soul. It feels right...warm, friendly and organic. The people are real. I've been in many times and the service has always been good and the food is better than you would expect from a pub. The place is clean and the beer is cold. If you go at all, try the brunch on the weekends, you will be amazed.I'm told the Pump has been around for 20 years. Good restaurants last forever.
I had heard a lot of positive comments about the Pump so, while walking around on Elgin one Saturday morning looking for breakfast, I stopped by, attracted by the sign advertising brunch specials. What I got was a lot better than I would have expected from any old pub. The waitresses were great and very attentive (although it helps to come by when they're not busy). The brunch menu was good - I always have trouble picking breakfasts because I'm not sure what I'm going to get, but I settled for an omelette and definitely got my money's worth. The food was excellent and the little dark chocolate on my plate to finish off was a really nice touch. I was in the pub section (watching World Cup soccer) and the seating was a little cramped. I can imagine this is a bigger problem during busy times. Overall a great experience though, and I will definitely come back.
If you can't have a great time at the Pump, then there's something wrong with you. It's fun, it's friendly, it really is the best bar Ottawa has to offer. It's a great place to party, and a great place to soothe a hangover with an amazing brunch the morning after.
