When your stay at Inn of the Forks is over, make sure you get close to your “inner Irishman” before heading home. Last year counted down 17 Days to St. Patrick’s Day by looking at the best Irish bars in the country. Scoring at number 12 was the King’s Head in Winnipeg. Jody Robbins had the unenviable task of trying out all that great beer at King’s Head and said “Even the building has character. Walls of exposed brick and mortar betray its history as an electric company and give this 110-year-old joint a real heritage feel. The multi-floor pub keeps expanding and now occupies two buildings. It can hold a crowd of around 200 on each floor, each watching a different band at the same time.

Robbins: “When the thirsty crowd gets hungry, they tuck into the King’s Head curries that include colonial favourites such as Makhani Murgh aka Butter Chicken ($12.95) and Shrimp Quorma with cashews and raisins ($12.95). Specially for St. Paddy’s Day, the pub will offer Guinness Lamb Stew ($10.95) served with scones and Lamb Shank ($14.95) with mash and veg.”
