Old Settler Pub is a fine pub in Harrison Hot Springs. It's located right off the main entry road. It serves all of the typical pub fair as well as many other dishes you wouldn't normally find in a pub, but make no mistake their food is great. Pubs and quality food don't usually coincide but the staff will surprise you with their creative dishes. They have a large number of brews available, both imported and local. Many by bottle and many by tap. It has an lumberjack decor that's clean and comfortable.
