Will be accepting online reservations soon!

The only Pub in Annapolis Royal that's been a landmark for years. We've taken pieces of this building’s past to create a new experience so our guests can feel the history and warmth.

Our wood fire rotisserie showcases food at the center of Whiskey Tellers’ open kitchen.

Shadowed by an intimate chef’s table, where you can experience first-hand what’s happening right at the hearth. We’re putting a spin on traditional pub grub from a perfectly roasted chicken, to grilled ribs, or mouth-watering rotisserie pulled pork nachos, and more…

That was the best Thanksgiving dinner I have ever enjoyed. The brussels sprouts alone would have made it a success - so delicious. It was an upscale holiday meal, beautifully presented. The pumpkin pie was the perfect finisher; I had no room, but I ate it anyway.

Only negative issue was I had made a reservation about 2 weeks in advance for a table of 4 for downstairs but when we arrived there was no table available. In fairness, we were told we could wait for a table to become available or we could go upstairs, which we chose to do. The seating was not overly comfortable as 2 of us had to sit on stools with no backing. The food was good as was the service. We would definitely go again.

We have been here several times since they opened and have always enjoyed it. The food is very good and tasty but a bit pricey. Love the cocktails. The staff are great and a lot of fun. They are very accommodating. My only critique is the table/chair set up is not very comfortable. The tables are either too low or the chairs are too high. Need some work on ergonomics. Great place to go otherwise and worth a visit. Will be back for sure

The fries were very salty. I did not enjoy my bacon and chicken naanwich, and infact ate half of my husband's meal instead.

Friendly, efficient service.Enjoyed the ribs and grilled vegetables.
Sat downstairs .Would have a problem climbing stairs to the second floor so would only make reservations for the first floor.

Service was excellent but can be very noisy downstairs. I highly recommend the pulled pork burger! I would however not recommend the chicken and rib combo because the ribs are cooked with no spices or sauces and are very bland with only the table sauces to give them flavor.

We all liked our meals.Limited vegetarian options but tasty.Too noisy,music too loud and customer talking very loud.Pricey for a pub,$166 for 4 plus a 2 yr.old.incl.4 beverages.
Entering is awkward, despite a reservation,wait outside in bad weather.

We love Whiskey Teller....the food is plentiful and delicious, with wonderful dishes that are spicy - but not too much - and different - but not too much. The appetizers are already famous, and the rotisserie chicken is worth standing in line for. Add the music tracks and the restoration of the old bank building to the mix, not to mention the cocktails, and you have a perfect pub!

We were seated in sight of the entrance which was cold and drafty. The partitions were not secured and subsequently when diners were seated beside us, whenever they moved so did the partition.

The building is lovely. The service is excellent. The food is very tasty, although I did find the chicken flat bread sandwich somewhat messy and difficult to eat. Loved the grilled Caesar salad. My husband loved the brisket, but found the bun too soft and mushy.
As the only deuce table on the main floor, with lots of tables of groups, we found it so noisy that we could not carry on a conversation. Will try upstairs next time.
Our only real complaint is the wine. One choice for red and it is really terrible wine,
with a vaguely mouldy taste. For those of us who don't drink whiskey, beer or fizzy drinks with our meals, more wine choices, please ! We will be back to try the ribs. We are thrilled to have this new dining experience in Annapolis Royal.

Great friendly staff, large portions, and a lovely (if small) space. This is more restaurant than pub, but has great ambiance. The pork ribs are fantastic, the chicken very good, and the pulled pork is delicious. Nice selection of BBQ sauces, and the house ketchup is excellent. The building has been remodeled beautifully, though the front door makes the nearby tables a bit chilly. I'm sure it will will be great in summer, though! Highly recommended.

As it’s first week of opening there are always kinks that need to be worked out. I was seated upstairs on a stool, wasn’t really a fan of that, uncomfortable to eat and enjoy. My order was wrong but was fixed quickly
The Buffalo chicken dip was excellent! My fave of the nite. The Caesar salad wasn’t really enjoyed, the baked potato was superb! The chicken sandwich was ok .. wasn’t a fan of the bread but the insides was very tasty. The waiter was personable. I will be back to try other items. 😊

Made a reservation for a dinner setting under the impression that we would be seated downstairs. Upon arrival we were seated upstairs.... no big deal but we truly wanted to be seated downstairs. The fantastic food and fantastic service made up for that. Will be back again and multiple times at that. Food was HOT, great portions and super tasty. Great job and keep up the FANTASTIC job. Congrats!

Everything was very good, I’m impressed with all that’s been done and pleased with the service during my visit.
We had a great seat but the only negative thing I have to mention is that it was very cold in there. That little separate entrance way that was once there really allowed for less of a draft in the pub.

Well this restaurant is in Nova Scotia
Lack of seafood on the menu
Scallops appy or a salmon on the menu would be appreciated
Extreme lack of wine what was offered was expensive and poor quality
Most foods covered in a sauce
Not necessary it hides the real taste of the food
The service was good we had a good server

It was great to have the “local” back. The new owners have created a gem. Great food as expected, friendly service, a great beer, amazing dessert.
The front door location is awkward for draughts. The noise level was a bit louder than our preference. Great experience. Well worth it.
