When you first glance the outside of the Pig’s Ear, even when you walk through the door, you are unsure if this is a place accepting of anyone other than the most hardened local! Especially when I had just spent the majority of my time in Peterborough walking the streets on a food tour, sampling the local micro breweries craft ale, and leisurely punting around Little lake on a stand-up paddle board. Still, I was assured THIS was the place to go. And it definitely was! From the first pitcher of beer in mini glasses, to the impossibly hard quiz I don’t think anyone could have answered (was it the beer, or sour grapes?!). The Pig’s Ear proved to be a warm and welcoming highlight of the trip to Ontario, and a place I hope top re-visit when I return.
