Fo'c'sle Pub

The Oldest Pub in Nova Scotia and affectionately known as “Chester’s Living Room, ” The Fo’c’sle Pub is an inviting restaurant and bar that welcomes year-round and summer “locals” as well as those just passing through. Depending on where you sit, you in a former grocery store, stable, inn or tavern dating back to 1764.

The Fo’c’sle Pub offers a perfect place to gather with friends and family. We’re proud to be the local go-to for elevated pub fare and coastal cuisine. Try something classic or find a new favourite.

Similar to how the name originated! The forecastle of a ship, commonly seen spelled as Fo’c’sle, is the area where sailors sleep and congregate while off duty.
