Duncan's Pub is an excellent pub and restaurant in a town which seems to offer little by way of competition! We were despairing of finding somewhere other than a "Diner" to eat when we came across this place. It's everything a pub/restaur5ant should be. Good...More

We stopped in for lunch as we were leaving Nova Scotia. My son ordered chicken wings...which were good but they tasted exactly the same as the ones you would get at Sobeys. I ordered the bbq chicken breast sandwich which was delicious was an absolute...More

As a chef and foodservice operator I tend to be quite critical of many operations based upon my own standards. However Duncan's Pub is mashing the food and service protocols - don't change. We were just taking a drive the other day and made a...More

Enjoyed a delicious seafood linguine and Trider’s Craft Beer on the patio overlooking Victoria Square. Watched the horse and carriage go by! Friendly staff, delicious food!

Foods pretty good,but have a tendency to bring your Main course too close to your appetizer and are forced to rush or leave your main under the heat lamp. Have been some new faces and follow up for desert or another drink can be slow.

Friends if ours attended this bar not long ago. We had supper then stayed for drinks. Then there was an open mic night which was really fun. Will return for sure! The reason why im scoring as a three, food was just ok. Nothing fancy.

I recently visited Duncan’s to catch up with some friends and family after having been away from Amherst for sometime. The menu has been refined in recent years and offers a wide selection at a reasonable price. Duncan’s still remains the best place in Amherst...More

Small pub with great seating (chairs, couch styles) arrangements. The place is a little darker than I would like but it is a pub. Food was good but a little slow. Waitresses were very friendly and accommodating.

It was very mediocre. It was a Sunday, so maybe the cook was not in. Spinach was wilted in the salad, soup was too salty, Jambalaya was glue-y and the stuffed mushroom caps were okay, but mushrooms sort of old. The steak and the seafood...More
