Locally Sourced Food
We believe in using locally sourced, fresh, in-season ingredients to create the tastiest, healthiest, heartiest meals this side of the Atlantic. With great thanks to the local hardworking farming and seafaring magicians of Isle Madame we are able to provide a menu sourced from the very island we live
Reflecting the changing seasons, our in-house chef lovingly creates dishes inspired by Nova Scotia and around the globe!
Complimenting the menu, the pub pours the best craft beer and international wine around, just ask the bartender.
Whether it’s been a hard days hiking, kayaking, bird watching or relaxing! Sit back, kick back and enjoy some food with character, drinks with friends or a solo pint whilst soaking up the atmosphere. You are more than welcome.
Local Craft Beer
What’s a pub without great beer? With 8 Taps of Craft Beer we have the largest selection of Craft Beer on Draft in Cape Breton. We support local and get the best beers from Big Spruce, Breton Brewing, Tatamagouche, Bad Apple and more.
Always switching it up to try the latest & greatest, you’ll always find a beer to suit your taste here.
With guest ales making a regular appearance, there’s no better place to sip a pint, read the paper, enjoy the music and gaze out upon the ocean.
We’re constantly searching for the best cocktails and mixing them fresh for you. Like everything else they change with the seasons, just check our board or ask our bartender to mix you one up!
The Music Pub
With an emphasis on local artists, we host musicians that play anything from traditional Cape Breton music to the latest tunes in the music scene.
We love to foot stomp to Celtic tunes, drink to rock and roll, dance to R&B and witness the latest up and coming artists. There’s always music on in the pub and open mic nights, karaoke and live music are a regular fixture in the pub.
