This was a nice pub, the atmosphere is what you expect from a small town pub. The food was probably the best pub food we have ever had. I would recommend this as a place to go for good food and good people.

I had nachos and a Greek salad with the grilled cheese sandwich. Salad was good, nachos and sandwich were kind of bland.

Worth the drive to Lunenburg to eat at the Knot, a great place to meet friends and have a good meal. Have visited the Knot since the mid nineties, usually order the Mussel Chowder.

We went to this pub both nights while in Lunenburg for drinks in the evening. On the last night we had drinks and peanut butter pie which was so delicious. Great old pub atmosphere.

Warm welcome, comfortable surroundings. The waitress was friendly and professional, very attentive. Our food was all tasty, well presented and with reasonable portions. I had a caesar salad with lasagne - excellent, especially the salad.

I eat at the Knot Pub a half dozen times a year, but the food and service for today’s girls’ lunch was especially great. The server was attentive and efficient and the food was very tasty. I can recommend the fishcakes with the Caesar salad....More
