The Port Pub, built by friends and owned by community shareholders, welcomes you. Enjoy good cheer and wonderful locally-produced food and drink, in an idyllic location in Port Williams, Nova Scotia.
The Port Pub and Bistro, situated on the banks of the Cornwallis River, is one of the first gastropubs in Nova Scotia. The Pub was purposefully designed and built as a gastropub by local tradesmen and showcases a unique architectural design. You can enjoy beautiful Annapolis Valley views from both within the pub or outside on our waterside deck.
Your food is prepared in our kitchen from local produce within season. We feature our own micro-brewed beers produced on site and an adventurous drink selection.
What is a Gastropub?
A gastropub is a British term for a public house (“pub”) which specializes in high-quality food. The name is a combination of pub and gastronomy and was coined in 1991 when David Eyre and Mike Belben opened a pub called The Eagle in Clerkenwell, London. They placed emphasis on the quality of food served.
Gastropubs usually have an atmosphere which is relaxed and a focus on offering a particular cuisine prepared as well as it is in the best restaurants. Staying true to the format requires a menu that complements the assortment of beers and wines the gastropub offers.
