Having heard rave reviews from locals, I was here in July and had the chance to return in September. I love the menu – with all the single items, it's easy to customize your meal without substituting this for that from a typical plate. (Their menu is online – have a look.)

And the food has yet to disappoint. Between the two visits, I've tried the small order of mussels (twice now), the chili, carrot cake, and shared the zucchini sticks, a large Greek salad and the peanut butter pie. Everything was delicious. And although I liked the carrot cake, the peanut butter pie just can't be beat. It's rich and creamy, and worth turning a blind eye to calories.

Best to arrive early for dinner. We were in town mid-week, and operating off a different time zone by a few hours, we got a table before 5 pm. Soon after, the place started to fill up and there were long waits for some of the people who stuck around.

Nice atmosphere, good food, near our B&B






We were part of a party of 8. We were able to sit together and watch the US open tennis tournament tennis final on tv while we ate a very good dinner. The pub was near our B&B.

This small cottage looking place is easily missed. It looks so small from the street, but inside is roomy and cozily charming. First, the lack of one star is entirely due to what I believe is a very temporary problem with the cashiering system. It delayed the check substantially, but to their credit the waitress apologized before she even took the drink order. Our meals were simple ones; fish and chips, pub club, burger, sausage and kraut,etc. and all were exceptionally good and an excellent value. After eating at several more upscale places, this simple fare was welcomed by pallette and pocket oak!

Good service, decent food, lower end of the foodie spectrum. Good basics (burgers, fish 'n' chips, that sort of thing). One of the only places open on a Monday - apparently, Lunenburg closes down on Mondays!) Evidently a well loved local restaurant, more for locals than tourists. I went back a couple of times during my stay. Decent pricing.

We visited the Knot Pub for a beer at the end of the day. It's housed in a lovely little building in a residential area and blends in so well we weren't certain it was even open until we actually entered the premises. Warm ambiance, with a helpful and cheery staff and lively clientele. Good selection of area beers on tap.
