I ordered my traditional favorite - bangers and mash - tasty as usual. But I also sampled my wife's lasagna made with handmade noodles, house made sauce, mushrooms, and caramelized onions. It was in a small piping-hot cast-iron frying pan and served with garlic bread....More

After a lengthy wait on a seemingly slow evening, we were handed a menu with odd "pub" choices that was short on both portion size and taste. Whatever you receive will likely be your third or fourth choice, as the aloof waitress informs you that...More

I've been to this quaint pub on 2 occasions. The food, service and atmosphere was 5 star on both occasions. It will continue to be my go to place when I'm in town looking for outstanding pub grub.

We shop in Antigonish frequently and always look forward to having a meal at the Townhouse when time permits. These folks like food as the use of many locally sourced ingredients shows. I really enjoy the ever changing curry specials and great assortment of craft...More

Great food, great beer, and 4 hours of live Celtic music by a 10 person session band. Can't get any better. Live music every Sunday...don't miss it.

Definitely a gastropub. Very good food and a nice selection of wine as well as beer. Comfortable environment with a mix if college students and locals.

The Townhouse is a cozy, neighbourhood pub, focused on great Nova Scotian craft beer, and fresh, local food. We have 9 taps of NS microbrews, including our own Terry's Best Bitter, brewed upstairs, cask-conditioned, and served on a traditional hand pump. Our guest tap changes regularly, featuring one-offs & seasonals from breweries across the province. Our eclectic menu starts with the best local, seasonal products from the area - from seafood to root veggies - and offers them up in traditional and un-traditional ways. Our kitchen takes great pride in making (almost) all of our food - breads, desserts, pates, pickles, spice mixes, dressings, and chutneys - from scratch, in house. You'll find old world pub favourites, hearty main dish salads, rustic taverna fare (Tapas boards, oysters on the half shell), and dishes from farther afield (Mexican Pizza, Korean Pork & Kimchi Burger, Thai Jungle curry). We are fast becoming famous for our ultra-rich Lobster Chowder and Polish Cheesecake. Although inspired by the neighbourhood pubs of the UK and Ireland, the Antigonish community and our wonderful regulars give the pub it's real colour and relaxed, friendly atmosphere. Weekly events include live jazz and trivia during the school year, and every Sunday we serve a roast and host a traditional Irish music session from 6:30pm.
