Our cuisine has a very fine reputation among hotel guests, local gourmands and those attending special events on our premises. Menu items follow a seasonal theme and give emphasis to Nova Scotian traditions. Fresh, locally grown produce is used in many entree items which enhance the flavours of our seafood, chicken, steak and pasta dishes. Guests can choose from an array of mouth watering items such as the Inn's fantastic Scotch Salmon, fresh Atlantic Lobster or tempting pasta dishes all made by our experienced culinary team.

End your meal with the Inn's signature Death by Chocolate, a rich chocolate and Grand Marnier pate, or try our ever popular Coconut Cream Pie. Our fantastic menu selections are matched only by the warm, friendly, and detail-oriented nature of our food service staff.
