The back patio!
The Pour House has a great patio! Really. I actually went there for YEARS before I even realized the patio existed. It's tucked away in the back. You have to walk right to the rear of the pub, then slip out a side door that's not all that clearly marked to find it. Then... patio paradise! Lovely old Annex trees surround the double level deck. The vibe is more Toronto backyard than anything else. It's really comforting. It takes you away from the noise of Dupont and makes you feel like you're somewhere much more interesting than a generic pub. I love going there with my softball team after a summer game. Give me leaves above, warm air all around, and a pint of cider and I'm happy. And that's just what the Pour House does.
