Quaint, friendly, historic pub with great charm

Looking for a nice drink after a long day on the road, we happened upon The Knot, which brought a perfect ending to a wonderful day in Lunenburg. It's charming beyond most pubs. The staff was friendly and efficient. And the beer hit the spot!

We spend a lovely evening in this pub on our visit to Lunenburg. It had a well kitted bar with numerous bear types. The staff was very friendly and the atmosphere in this quint pub was warm and welcoming. Its patrons were many locals and travelers. I could recommend a visit to this pub.

We had a great meal here on our last night in Lunenburg. The pub is nothing to look at on the outside and you could easily miss it but inside it's an Aladdin's cave with a really quaint atmosphere. We shared some starters and then I had the pub club sandwich for main course, which was fantastic. All the portions... More

Wonderful place - good food - great staff - warm and friendly. If you like trivia, stick around on Thursday night for a super competitive trivia game. Find out who won the next day - just look on the dart board!

We arrived at The Knot hoping for a fun pub-like experience. We arrived around 11 but we had no idea the kitchen didn't open until 11:30. Our waitress said we could order drinks and she would put our orders in right at 11:30. While waiting, we enjoyed the dark and unique interior of the place. I had the fish and... More

My husband and I found this by accident while walking back to our B&B. The atmosphere reflects the down east friendliness and hospitality. The place was packed the two times we went which added to the atmosphere. Although it was busy our wait for a table and food was not long as the service was excellent. Portions were substantial.

The Knot Pub is always a great spot for a drink and tasty food. Trivia night is a great way to have fun with friends. The salads are always a great option to fries but the fries are hard to resist.
