“Great place for a light meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

We ate lunch here while in Lunenburg. My husband had knock wurst, and I had the chili and garlic bread. Both were great. Stop by, you won't regret it.

“Great night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014

Had a great evening at The Knot, Stephanie, Carol Ann and Mackenzie were working their butts off, kept our beer filled and the food was good pub grub. It is easy to miss, it is the place that looks like the gnome house across from Burger King. Fun night out.

“Good Pub Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

Service was the only issue we had with the Knot. It seemed that the bartender was the only person waiting on tables. The food was good for a small pub. Was a bit difficult finding where to park.

“Why Knot?!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

Based on the numerous excellent reviews, visited over the weekend during a day trip to Lunenburg. Visited the location at 5pm or so for a late lunch/ early dinner.

To begin, its pretty authentic in terms of decor, both inside and out. Service was good. Had the Knot Ale which was good - similar to a propeller bitter. In terms of food, ordered the chowder and fish and chips. Perhaps the chef was having an off day. Everything was under seasoned. The fish chowder had a lot of fish which was great, and the consistency of the broth was what you would generally expect from a chowder. Put some salt and a dash of pepper and it was good. The fish had a tad too much batter (for our taste) and consequently, was too oily. The fries were OK, also needed seasoning.

All in all, the food was underwhelming - though perhaps our expectations were too high based on the reviews. High marks for the decor and service.
