Description: 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.

“Yum!”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

Lots of local beer and sourced ingredients. Had the steak pie and Boxing Rock beer; both were very good. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable on ingredients. Would go certainly go back.

“A must!”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

We were so lucky to have stumbled upon this restaurant. The locally sourced food was so good. Everything we tried was truly delicious. Apparently, their menu changes with the seasons and I wish I could be around to try more. Good beer, too.

“Pub style restaurant”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

Good selection of food, with more than the usual burgers and fries. Friendly helpful service, but could be a little slow when they were busy.

“Great pub and eatery - who knew?”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

We had not heard of Townhouse Brewpub before. Looking for a bite to eat before the theatre, we discovered and tried it. Atmosphere, service and food all great. They publicize locally sourced ingredients - kudos. A number of Nova Scotia craft beers on tap - something for everyone. We recommend this place and will return.
