We ate here three times during our week's tour of Celtic Colours. Just down the road from our accommodation in Port Hood it provided great comfort food in a busy but friendly atmosphere. We had some of the best fish and chips and seafood chowder here! Get there early for dinner or you may be standing in line out the door and down the sidewalk.

Found the restaurant 10 mins away from the B&B. The food was generally ok, and the music was Scottish and made for a very enjoyable evening.

We arrived to a standing room only event! Great music, hearty meals and an audience who wanted to dance and participate. This Pub has a built in draw with the Rankin Sisters as your hosts on a regular basis. There is parking around the Pub but ckear

We stopped in after reading about this pub on TA. This was our first stop enroute the Cabot Trail. We stopped in on a Sunday and got to hear about an hour of music by the Mackenzie girls? It was fantastic! Really enjoyed dinner and a pint of Big Spruce kitchen party ale as well. This is busy and crowded but we thought well worth the visit.

Great food and great local music! When there is live music playing the line up can be pretty long , but it's worth the wait! A place where most locals go to as well!
