November/December Update: Parties, gigs, and a few changes

New season, new menu, new hours

We are starting to switch up our menu for the wintry seasons. There may be a few stages in the switch-over, so bear with us. And while we'll have to bid adieu to green bean-dependant Totnes and Nicoise salads, ther will be new items added. We'd love to hear from you if there were any wintry dishes from the past you'd like to see come back... (We're thinking about Fisherman's Pie, Bangers 'n Mash, etc.)

Also, starting this week - the kitchen will be closing at 9pm every night except Friday, when it will stay open until 10pm.

And, in case you haven't tried it yet, Terry's beer, a Best Bitter, is in steady supply these days - and we're really pleased with what we feel is a particularly delicious example of a traditional British style ale. Cask conditioned and on hand-pump. We're welcoming descriptions for our menus... We've also introduced a few other new beers to the draft line up - Uncle Leo's IPA, Propeller Pale Ale, and from NS's newest micro-brewery Boxing Rock's Temptation Red - a uniquely hoppy and delicious one - check it out! 

Upcoming Events

Quiz night: This month will be on Wednesday, November 13th

Music galore! I'm very excited about the line-up we have booked for the coming months.
Details to come closer to the dates, but mark your calendars folks - we're really lucky to have some of these excellent performers in our region, and to have others coming from rather far afield. These shows are not to be missed!

November 23: Mary Beth Carty and Donald MacLennan (Antigonish!)

December 12: The Modern Grass Quartet (Halifax)

December 21: The Sin and The Swoon, (Michelle Tompkins) Montreal 

January 11: Gabriel and Ruth Minnikin (Dartmouth)

January 23: Fiver, (Simone Schmidt) (Toronto)

The Sin and The Swoon 

Christmas Parties!!!!

As November and December things start to slow down a bit, and as it is such a festive season, we have decided to break our no reservations rule, and host a few Christmas parties. If you have a group of 10 or more, we will reserve a table/rooms/the whole darn place and organize a set menu with 2-3 options for  appetizers, mains, desserts and tea/coffee at a set-price per person.

We can accommodate a limited number of Tuesdays, (some) Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, in November and December.

If you'd like to get your friends, family or co-workers together and maybe even see who does the best Rob Ford impersonations, please e-mail me to to discuss things further!

Thanks! Hope everyone's cozy out there this evening...

Rose & Terry
