Opened in 1983, moved into 105 Clergy Street in 1991. Paul and Margaret named the Pub after their Black Labrador dog Ben. There have been four Black Labs named Ben, the last one dying in 2013. Paul died in 1990, leaving Margaret to carry on the business . When Margaret retired in July 2014, she threw a party for her customers and entertainers. The food and drink prices were the same as they were in 1983.

About the artist:

Shirley Gibson-Langille was born in Toronto, but now calls Kingston home, where she is very active in the arts scene. As a Romantic Painter, Shirley works on location, taking the time to connect with her subject, always with a feeling of joy for the love of things just as they are!   

Over the past many years, Shirley has given and continues to give her artists’ perspective to so many of the unique nooks and crannies of Kingston, as well as the other special locations she captures in her work.

Shirley specializes in Portraits of homes and businesses.
