COVID-19 Update

By order of the Provincial Health Officer (PHO), proof of vaccination is required to access our business for dine-in service. For those who are ordering take out, this does NOT apply.


Starting September 13, you must have at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. By October 24, you must be fully vaccinated. The requirement is in place until January 31, 2022 and could be extended. 


For those who are vaccinated, we are offering indoor and outdoor seating. In terms of our outdoor seating, we have two patios available; our covered porch is awesome rain or shine and our parking lot patio provides a spacious, airy dining area under tree cover and string lights. 

At this time face masks are mandatory unless seated at a table. We do request that someone from each party sign in to our Covid-19 Contact Tracing Sheet in case we need to reach out. 

We are asking guests to socially distance while inside; we have socially distanced floor markers for those waiting to pick up their take out or needing to make a payment. We provide hand sanitizer in key locations and have two hand washing stations located in our washrooms. 

We are taking every precaution to ensure that we keep our guests, staff and community safe.

A big thanks all of our wonderful regulars, as well as our new patrons, for the continued support throughout the pandemic. 

YOUR Local Hideout

All stealthy wood thieves require a discreet place to return to come nightfall; a dwelling in which to feed, toast and chum around.  We welcome you and your kind into our cozy sanctuary, a place to kick back with your pals and reminisce about your latest mission. 


Weekdays 4:00 - 8:30PM 

Fri / Sat  4:00 - 9:00PM

Meet Chef Nick

Chef Nick is the Wood Thief. Be assured that when you visit the hideout, you'll be receiving food that was prepared by this man. Chef Nick does it all...this Red Seal Chef is the restaurant owner, chef, line cook, prep guy and dishwasher! He never takes a day off and he works alone in the kitchen. This guarantees consistency when it comes to our food. 

Having traveled to all continents, except Antarctica, his love for food has taken him around the world. Although he cooks up delicious pub fare, he is experienced with a multitude of different cuisines and food preparation styles. He likes bringing exotic flavours into his daily cooking which sets him apart from the average cook. 


Lately his passion for BBQ has sparked our Friday night summer BBQ sessions. Always a different cut of meat with unique side dishes; our regular menu is also available on these evenings too. A few past features include Korean Tacos, Pulled Pork Sliders, Smoked Beef Brisket and Jerk Chicken just to name a few. Be sure to swing by and try some banging, thoughtfully prepared meals! 

We'd also like to highlight that we have a small menu and that everything is made from scratch. In addition to hot food, we also offer frozen take home items such as savoury pies and four cheese, spinach lasagnas - great for lazy nights at home!
