WE BUY LOCAL
We’re proud to source our food from great local and NS suppliers! We buy veggies, fruit, and herbs in season from Antigonish Co. market gardeners: Seabright Gardens, Casey VandeSande, Bethany’s Garden Apprentice Program, Quinn Farms, Calvin Venedam, Overmars Farms, and more.
We source pastured beef, lamb, and pork from Vacheresse Meats (an awesome family-run, local butcher shop), free range chicken from Crossroads Valley Farm, Cabot Oysters from Havre Boucher Seafoods, organic cheese from Knoydart Farms, honey from Cornect Family Farms, maple syrup from Haveracre’s Farms, wild blueberries from McLennan’s Glen & Wild & Blue Farms – all in Antigonsh Co.!
We bring in oyster and shiitake mushrooms from a great new grower Pura Vida Mushrooms (Pictou Co.), oysters from Mabou & Wolfe Island (CB) and North Nova (Pictou Co.), inland-farmed salmon & trout from Sustainable Blue (Centre Burlington), Advocate Harbour, and Northern Harvest (NB), Digby scallops, Ship Harbor mussels, sausages from The Pork Shop, and wild-caught and sustainably raised fish through Afishionado Fishmongers (Halifax).
THE SUNDAY ROAST & SESSION
Changes each week, always locally raised meats, ready for 5pm Sundays, live Irish music from 6:30. Just a note – we tend to be full before 6pm and people tend to longer for the music, so if you’re keen, consider coming in early (or possibly later – after 8 or so, as the kitchen is open until 10, and the musicians are usually still cooking too!
Look for our daily winter dinner specials including Pad Thai, Korean night, Burger night, and more!
