THE BARLEY VINE RAIL | A CANADIAN BISTRO & PUB | RESTAURANT REVIEW

Monday, 6 February 2017



Hi Foodies,

Matt and I recently went into Orangeville for a family event and had the perfect excuse to finally visit The Barley Vine Rail (or BVR for short).  Located downtown on Broadway, BVR occupies Orangeville's historic rail station which was originally built back in the late 1800s.  BVR is a Canadian bistro pub with a variety of mouth-watering starters, classic entrees and craft beer.


BVR has been on our "to eat" list for quite some time now so we couldn't wait to dig in! 

We had our eyes on a couple of the appetizers like the barnyard poutine and chicken & waffles.  In the end, we opted for the crispy pork bombs: pulled pork and cheddar croquettes with pickled jalapeno sour cream on a bed of homemade smoked chipotle BBQ sauce.  Alongside our appetizer, we enjoyed a Maple Whiskey Sour and a flight of 4 beers. 


For mains, I ordered the BVR mac' n cheese with a mixed green salad and Matt had the braised beef short rib. The BVR mac' n cheese is made with a three-cheese sauce, double smoked bacon, buffalo sauce and topped with toasted parmesan bread crumbs.  The mac' n cheese was creamy and of course, cheesy! The double smoked bacon and bread crumbs added great texture and put a twist on your classic mac' n cheese.   The mixed green salad was topped with goat cheese, roasted beets and candied nuts...the perfect compliment.  


The braised beef short rib was juicy and tender...no need for a knife. The butternut squash risotto was a beautiful compliment, adding complexity and unique flavours to the dish. 
Overall, it was rich and flavourful...delicious!


We went all out and got desserts and some French press coffee to finish off our meal.  We indulged with a Vanilla Bean Crème brûlée and a triple chocolate brownie topped with vanilla bean ice cream and caramel drizzled on top.  





We had a great lunch at the BVR and we will definitely head back again on our next trip to Orangeville...and probably indulge in some appies!
