Best Fish and Chips in Nova Scotia!

All the food is delicious - great pub food! Portions are very generous and the Fish is Super Fresh! Wash down anything you order with their flagship "Knot Pub Ale". Great burgers, wings, everything!!

Quick stop for lunch first of the week. Nice pub atmosphere with choice of booths or tables (copper tabletops). Friendly staff of course, 'McKenzie' was attentive, knowledgeable and smiling.

The food and drink service at the pub was quite good even though they were at capacity for a lunch time crowd. The food was above par for a pub experience.

The Knot, run by Denyse and Walter Flower, is a Lunenburg and Nova Scotian treasure. Warm wood, cozy nooks, at which you might find a local character reading the paper or writing who knows what. The outside is as inviting, with vines climbing over a door that a Hobbit would like on his home. The food is real, Nova Scotian,... More

I make a point of going to this pub, every time I go to Lunenburg (I go fairly often for work). The Caesar salad is super garlic-y, and so tastey!! I've had several items off of the menu, but, I always get this salad, either as a main dish, or a side (the Knot burger is also exceptional). The staff... More

The most reliable-most reasonable-great pub food place at the entrance of Lunenburg town! The seafood is fresh and thankfully they know how to cook it perfectly. The brew was excellent too.

My wife and I dropped in "The Knot" for a late lunch (3 pm) on a Thurs afternoon. It was very quiet, in fact besides us, there were only two other patrons, a couple having a meal. I ordered a Greek salad, my wife a Caesar salad and we shared an order of hot wings. We've ordered these salads before,... More
