Located on the road to Lighthouse this cozy pub offers great home cooked pub fare, entertainment in the evenings and a great view of Big Tub Harbour. Food is excellent, service friendly with comfy surroundings ... nice break form the Tobermory harbour hustle.

We were looking for a good, inexpensive restaurant for dinner and this it and more. The burger had a juicy pattie between a perfectly complimented bun. Also tried my son's fish. Lightly battered and also worth a try. French onion soup is uniquely made with...More
