Alphie’s Trough

Named after Maj.-Gen. Sir Isaac Brock’s horse Alfred, Alphie’s Trough was Brock’s original campus pub — a three-storey chalet overlooking the scenic, tree-covered Niagara Escarpment. Alphie’s Trough now houses Alphie’s Bistro, a restaurant exclusive to Brock faculty, staff, graduate students and their guests. The building is also home to Youth University. Visitor parking for Alphie’s is available in lots D and P. Alphie’s Trough was designed by David Flemming of Flemming and Secord Architects and built in 1970.

Fast Fact: Rumour has it that Alphie’s Trough was closed in the 1990s because too many students had injured themselves or died by falling off the escarpment. This is not true. Read more in The Brock News.
