Despite the woodsy Canadian feel, it's the Brit-themed food and drinks that make this three-storied headcase a bit more interesting (the third story has yet to open). Red-coated chef Andy Bennett has created an almost unthinkable menu of Canuck-meets-the-Union-Jack fusion that includes duck-leg soup, Guinness-braised iron steak, and only-in-Canada poutine (fries smothered in cheddar cheese curds and gravy).
Overall, Inn LW12 provides little disappointment. The food is unique, the drinks are delicious and the dÃ©cor is as warm as a Saskatoon sunset. Unfortunately, the location seems to encourage a crowd that has little appreciation for Canadian gastro (whatever that is), and thus hinders what could be a delicious experience that goes beyond the hockey, curling, and bacon that makes our friends to the north so damn, well, Canadian. --Adam Sherrett
