The Carleton Tavern is a regular haunt for the thousands of public servants who work in the massive federal government complex known as Tunney’s Pasture. Right across from the Parkdale Farmers Market, it draws a good mix of local regulars, trades people and neighbours for a relaxed quart of beer after work and into the weekend.
The Carleton is situated in a 65 year-old building whose original décor features wooden floors, a bar and tables. The overall feel is homey and welcoming. The main level includes a stage where rock and country bands play Fridays and Saturdays. The second level is a cozy room perfect for private parties (Carleton caters) and can be reserved at no cost. During the weekdays, dart leagues compete on the seven boards upstairs, and Saturdays feature an open dart tournament where the grand prize is a steak dinner.
Simple, Cheap, Good Food
The Carleton Tavern offers a full menu of pub food, including freshly ground burgers, homemade fries, club sandwiches, fish and chips and pizza. Popular appetizers are chicken wings, nachos, and potato skins, although most everything on the menu is tasty and reasonably priced. Lunch specials that include soup and coffee are whipped up daily by the chef and they are open for breakfast seven days a week starting at 8 a.m.
