The Townhouse Brewpub & Eatery is a busy community supported restaurant in Antigonish, NS, inspired by the cozy, traditional neighbourhood pubs of England and Ireland. We take the quality of our food and drink very seriously with a focus on Nova Scotia craft beers, spirits, and local food. Terry’s traditional, cask conditioned, English style ales are brewed upstairs; while downstairs, our kitchen creates fresh, vibrant and delicious food, with many ingredients sourced from an amazing network of local suppliers.

We have a great team of employees who share our values and care deeply about creating a memorable experience for our patrons. Our current Chef, Justin, considers his time at The Townhouse a highlight of his culinary career, but will be returning home to Halifax to start a family and brewery of his own. Therefore, we are currently looking for a skilled and passionate Chef to lead the Townhouse Kitchen.

There is a lot of room for creativity and exploration in this position! Our ideal candidate has previous experience running a fun and efficient kitchen environment and he/she wants to commit to building a great team and restaurant operation over the long term. You are disciplined, driven, focused, and lead others respectfully with a true interest in their development. You enjoy collaborating with local producers to come up with new ways to present local and seasonal fare. You are dedicated to working with your team to ensure visitors are blown away by the consistently high quality of the dishes you prepare.

We are proud to be ranked among the very best of 30 restaurants in Antigonish on Trip Advisor, and have received their Certificate of Excellence for the past 4 years. We regularly receive customer feedback praising our food as among the most interesting in Nova Scotia. For a taste of what Townhouse life is like, please see our social media: facebookinstagramblog.
