Michael Hurley live at The Townhouse!

We are thrilled to the gills to announce our very first live music performance at the Townhouse! We'll be opening up Monday, August 6th, for a special performance from Michael Hurley, the man, the myth, the legend of Snock! 

This is a very rare chance to see the renowned songwriter, a veteran of the 60's Greenwich village scene, and one of the most original and charming musicians I have ever had the fortune to come across. He collaborated with the Holy Modal Rounders, his songs have been covered by everyone form Jesse Colin Young and The Youngbloods to Cat Power, he's recently been performing alongside folks like Bonnie Prince Billy and Alela Diane, and has been championed by the likes of Devendra Banhart and the good people at Sappyfest.

DO NOT MISS THIS SHOW! This might just have to be our official grand opening...

Current Hours

Hey Folks!

We are thrilled with the incredible response we've had to The Townhouse so far. We've been so happy to have so many great people dropping in and just want to apologize for any confusion about our hours - we have been doing our best to keep up with the demand without compromising the quality of the food we're putting out, or burning out our very valuable kitchen staff! Making everything from scratch is a lot of work, but we think it's worth it and hope you do too. As a result we're just opening Wednesday through Sunday for the evenings, serving supper from 5pm to 10pm.

Wednesday 4pm - 12am
Thursday 4pm - 12am
Friday 4pm - 12am
Saturday 4pm - 12am
Sunday 4pm - 10pm

Kitchen open daily from 5pm - 10pm.

After 10pm we can still do the Townhouse Tapas and the Smoked Salmon Pate snacking boards, and the Double Ginger Stout Cake and Chocolate Almond Torte.

We are not taking reservations, but we would suggest larger parties try to come in either a little earlier (5-6pm) or a little later (8-9pm) to improve the likelihood of getting a table without a wait.

We're bringing some great new people into the kitchen and hope to start extending our hours in the coming months. So yes, lunches will be happening in the near future!

To see our full menu, check out our facebook page - it's one of our wall photos...

Thanks again for all the interest and support!


Rose & Terry and the whole Townhouse Gang

P.S. Sorry folks! I had accidentally put Tuesdays on this schedule, but as of right now we're not opening Tuesday!

Open for business!

Hey, we've finally got the doors open!

It's been a  wild and crazy week, and we've loved every minute of it. We have amazing staff, families, and community behind us and they're doing us proud. We'll be opening again Tuesday at 5:30pm, so come on by for a drink. Hours for the coming week will be posted soon, and there is an Irish music session in the works, so check back here or the facebook page for updates!

Check out the awesome front page article from this week's Chronicle Herald! Click here.

The only minor setback to report is that the brewing aspect (one of the major focuses of this whole enterprise) has had to be put on hold for now. We couldn't fit the little SABCO into the kitchen's kiosk, so we're going to move it upstairs. The silver lining: a much more spacious and visit-friendly brewery, complete with tasting room, workshops, and maybe eventually a rooftop patio! Plus the kitchen has more room to do what they do best - pump out amazing, fresh local food!

Right now we've got house smoked salmon paté, PEI mussels, Pork Shop bangers & mash, Antigonish & Guysborough county beef for our steak and ale pie, Knoydart Farm's 1 yr old Double Gloucester cheese,  Easting's Bakery's organic kamut baguettes, greens and some early veggies from Seabright Gardens, and my mom's famous Polish Cheesecake on offer, among many other tasty treats...

If you've been in to visit we would love to hear about it, send us an e-mail or facebook message, or post a comment here.

If you haven't been in yet, we'd love to see you at The Townhouse soon!
