The Washback Pub & Whisky Warehouse Dining Room
Our menu is designed and presented by Executive Chef Patrick MacIsaac.  Each signature dish is prepared with local ingredients and is influenced by traditional Nova Scotian culture.

North America's First Single Malt
Our story starts in the early 1800’s, when Scottish immigrants flocked to Cape Breton Island. Its beauty resembled the Highlands and islands of Scotland so much that they decided to settle here and make it their permanent home. Many traditions and secrets travelled across the sea with those pioneers. One of those secrets was the making of a spirited whisky.
