Our normal restaurant for dinner when in Antigonish is Gabrieau's. Unfortunately, it is closed on Sundays, so a local recommended that we go to the Townhouse. What a great suggestion that turned out to be! The Townhouse is a really good gastropub, with excellent food...More

Had the seafood chowder and it was some of the best I've ever had! Nice creamy base with a lot of different seafoods in it. Comes with a couple pieces of delicious bread also. Would definitely recommend.

Small pub with fantastic food. The menu is small but makes up for it with quality. Lobster chowder with soda bread was to die for - and hands down my favorite meal of my 8-day trip around Nova Scotia. Don't miss this place!

We were in the area for a week and stopped in here twice. Nice atmosphere, friendly bartenders, good food and beer selections. We sat at the bar both times and had local beer and oysters. Great spot.

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.
