“Locals eat here”
Reviewed 20 August 2013

Tried the breaded haddock. Light, tasty, great lunch-time treat. Busy place, but even with only one wait-staff, everyone seemed to be receiving quick, friendly service. Would recommend Rose & Griffon to anyone visiting Shelburne. After all, as per my 'title', the locals were dining there!

“Great food, including vegetarian dishes!”
Reviewed 14 July 2013

This is one of my favourite places in Shelburne to eat ... and Shelburne has a surprising number of good choices for such a small town. The owners, Gary and June, have tailored their menu to focus on those dishes they do best: seafood, handmade pasta (including ravioli), burgers (including an awesome veggie burger), vegetarian dishes including chana masala and a good selection of coffees and desserts (including homemade gelato). When the Rose and Griffon reopens at the end of July 2013, the new summer menu will be in full swing ... and hubby and I will be back!

“Always a great experience”
Reviewed 14 April 2013

Charming small town business with owners who really want you to feel welcome and comfortable.

Whenever we travel in the area, we make it a point to stop in for lunch or dinner. The atmosphere is great, the menu (while not huge) definitely has something for everyone.

As two vegetarians, we find even the bigger communities in NS are vegetabally challenged in dining options - however the Rose and Griffon always has great veggie options and actually some of the best Indian food we have experienced in Eastern Canada.

It's a shame the locals don't realize what a gem they have right on their doorstep! Would live to have place like this closer to Halifax.
