Nova's Scotia's Oldest Rural Pub
Circa 1764, The Fo'c'sle, enjoys a commanding presence at the corner of Queen and Pleasant Streets, in the centre of the village of Chester. As Nova Scotia's oldest rural pub, in one of the province's prettiest seaside villages, The Fo'c'sle offers its patrons a traditional maritime menu, year round. The tavern, over the years has often been compared to a British pub, with warm seasoned pine ceilings/ wainscoting, oak floors, and exposed beams/ posts, flows into a separate area for the family restaurant, overlooking Chester's main business street. Celebrations of all kinds (birthdays, anniversaries, reunions, retirements, and more) have taken place here, including the gathering of sailors, artists, sports teams, theatre goers, tourist and locals, all adding to the history of this character - filled building .... once an inn, stable, grocery store, and pharmacy. The second level includes a kitchen for the on-site bakery, along with plenty of storage.
The sale will include The Fo'c'sle, a long established business, the building and all the contents, ensuring a smooth and convenient transition for a new owner. Consider acting on your entrepreneurial spirit ... and settle into the wonderful lifestyle that the East Coast is known for world-wide!
Chester offers a Playhouse, coastal golf course, skating/ hockey/ curling complex, Art Centre, day care, yacht club, and more, on Nova Scotia's treasured South Shore, less than 50 minutes from Halifax and 30 minutes to the UNESCO town of Lunenburg.
