Why is it that the Doryman can’t add some vegetarian options to its menu (which doesn’t seem to have been updated in decades)? 5% of people always choose vegetarian meals when eating out, 37% of people choose the vegetarian meals sometimes. The Doryman has a...More

We joined the crowd on Saturday afternoon to hear the fiddle player and were well entertained! The band was very talented and they were joined by a young lady, maybe 11 years old, who also played the fiddle. She had the audience on their feet!...More

When we drove up and walked in, I thought, "Oh boy." The interior is a little bit dated - it reminded me of a popular restaurant in the small town where I grew up that hasn't been renovated since the 1970s. However, don't let that...More

This is a pub not a fancy restaurant. It's a friendly place with good pub food and lots of local color. Come early on music nights. We loved the Celtic music, and it was fun to watch the dancers.

I wasn't expecting much, but the food was actually very good. The service was also good. There was live music which was good as well. All in all, it was good.

I am very glad that you loved the food and service...The liquor laws makes it for an uneasy issue with us trying to explain the situation... We try our best, and usually works out. We try to keep things very legal to not get in...More

A last minute decision to go here was not a disappointment. I had the seafood chowder and fish & chips and both were excellent. Fresh cut fries, great coleslaw and homemade tartar capped off a great meal. The prices were reasonable and the portions were...More

An original pub built in 1966 with astonishing view of the harbour and Cheticamp Island. Watch fishing boats or whale tour boats while enjoying a fabulous meal, a cold drink, or listening to one of our raved ceilidhs or live music acts. Many locals eat and/or come for fun at this laid back pub. We hope your experience is up to par, and welcome comments on Tripadvisor...
