Great bistro for supper while staying next door at The Hebridean motel. Nice choice of freshly cooked food. Best fish and chips and pan fried haddock in a long time. Good choice of local beers and wines. Good atmosphere. Nice patio.

Thank you for taking the time to review us! I see you find the menu a bit expensive and I see that you have us on your "come back list" so I appreciate that. We certainly hope you will be back.

My friends and I went to port hood for the weekend and went to supper Saturday evening. It was fantastic! We had a could of drinks while waiting for our meal, I had a Caesar( delicious and spicy) they had something with pineapple and cranberry...juice/ &vodka and my friends enjoyed them as well. For our meal we all ordered the burger and I must say it was one of the best burgers I’ve ever had. I would definitely recommend it if you are a meat eater, so good. The service was great. Definitely give this place a try if you can!More

My wife and I were staying in nearby Archer's Edge glamping and had dinner both Friday and Saturday night. We booked ahead which is a good idea as it is a popular place. The food is very delicious and the menu varied to suit all...tastes. The service was super friendly. Friday night the food came after 40 minutes but Saturday was much quicker for some reason. We really enjoyed the overall dining experience and recommend anyone nearby to drop in .More

There are not many options in Port Hood but that is fine when you have the Clove Hitch. With the pandemic restrictions I imagine it was not as lively as usual but it still seemed very popular. Our dinners were great right down to the...edible flowers. We had the lobster linguine and the haddock. They were both competently done. The bottle of Tidal Bay was very good. The service was friendly and the place seemed popular with local people.More

We ended up at the Clove Hitch because it was just about the only place open on a weekday during the pandemic, but we were very happy with our meals and the service. Pub food with flair and an emphasis on fresh ingredients.

I would definitely eat here again. Food was fantastic, service was great. They do have a kids’ menu and are welcoming to children. I had the lobster linguini and it was excellent. Good choice of local craft beer and cocktails.

My boyfriend and I went here for lunch today before going to the beach in port hood! It was an awesome lunch, we both got the crispy chicken burgers & they were delicious! We are from Halifax and we are big crispy chicken burger fans,...and it can be hard to find a good one, but this place nailed it! Our server was also great Great experience, will definitely be back again soonMore
