“great location and friendly staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2015 NEW

I went to this location a couple of years ago and this was our first trip back to the area. You don't want to miss this quaint location. The food is fabulous and the atmosphere is very warm and inviting.

“Easter Sunday made Perfect !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2015

Went down to Rhubarb for Easter Brunch, so lovely. The girls came with us, Mimosa, eggs benedict on buttermilk biscuits, brisket hash. What more can you ask for, everything was just perfect. You get such a warm feeling from all the staff, they always make it feel like home.

“Great gastro type pub/restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2015

My wife and I had dinner and breakfast the next day at Rhubarb recently.

The menu is short but very well done.

For dinner we had a shared appetizer with hummus, olives & fried bread, the lamb shank and the burger. We shared a piece of carrot cake for desert. The lamb was a bit overdone but overall the food quality was very good with interesting flavor combinations.

For breakfast the next morning we had coffees and cappuccinos, the Brekkie Sarney (a sandwich with fried egg, bacon, tomato, lettuce, pickled onion, roasted tomato mayo) and the fishcakes. All was delicious.

Would recommend for dinner if staying nearby and as a nice drive out of the city for Sunday brunch.

“great get away”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2015

My husband and I had a wonderful getaway on the weekend after seeing their March newsletter advertising live music on Friday nights and a room upstairs for $89 ( which are clean , spacious rooms with a fantastic view ) The food and service were amazing for supper and lunch .- not a huge menu but everything was cooked to perfection . Thanks Diane and Jim for maintaining a wonderful restaurant that is close enough yet far enough from the city .Hope to see you again soon . Recommendation - order the burger - could be the best in Nova Scotia ?!
