If you’re like me, there’s just about nothing better than going to the pub and grabbing a few drinks with some friends after a long work week. Sharing some food, some drinks, some laughs, and creating new memories. To end my trip to Québec City, I wanted to get a drink and have dinner at the oldest (old = spooky, it’s common knowledge) pub in the city. A quick Google search brought me to the doorsteps of Pub l’Oncle Antoine, located on 29 Rue Saint-Pierre in historical Québec City. Established in 1754, this little basement pub is perfectly spooky and delicious.
I wanted to have my meal inside to fully experience this historical pub. Unfortunately, that day it was well over 35 degrees Celsius, there is no air conditioning inside the building (which is to be expected considering its age) and there is a large wood-burning oven in the middle that is used to cook all the food. Needless to say, it was hot as hell in there, so I opted to eat on the terrace outside.
The food was delicious. I ordered the crab cakes and Croque Monsieur, and my boyfriend ordered the French onion soup and the smoked meat sandwich. They also make their own beer, which was also fabulous.
I didn’t see any ghosts, but I did have a lovely time at this historic establishment, and you should too! Perhaps I’ll go back during the winter where eating inside would be more appropriate, and I could fully experience the spooky basement pub atmosphere.
For now, though, this was a perfect way to end my trip.
