“Stopped here on a recent motorcycle trip to Atlantic Canada. It was dreary and cold when I got there in late June but I had hours to kill before the ferry. Unassuming industrial garage of a building that my GPS had lots of trouble finding. Anyhow I showed up and they were celebrating an anniversary so the place was packed. Cozy tap room with maybe a dozen tables and some room at the bar for one weary traveler from NH. Flights pints and cans to go. The beer ranged from decent to great with a hefe and brown at the top of my list. No food but they had a food truck for the event. Service was great although a bit busy. Great vibe, they had bands all day and everyone seemed friendly. I'd go back if I was in the area.“

“In the summer of 2017, they added an outdoor beer garden to the normal restaurant business of Governor's. Bigger tap selection, all of it is craft, by far the best craft beer location in Cape Breton and actually a pretty solid place to spend an evening while in Sydney. Nice old building with a dining room downstairs and a pub up top. Nice decks on both levels. They have a nice tap list (better now with the addition of some local micros). Friendly service and reasonable prices - I’ve only eaten here once, but the food was lovely. It’s really the only game in town if you’re looking for craft beer.“

“2017-08-14. Surprisingly cozy place in an industrial park. Nice high top tables, giant chalkboard behind the bar. Windows into the brewery. Six taps of their own brews on today. Server is friendly. Nice small patio is in full sun today so we opt for shade by the open patio door. Decent stop and well worth a visit if in the area, but the the beers just okay for the most part (aiming for mainstream acceptance presumably) with one or two that rose above the crowd.“

“A large bar with a bit of a party atmoshpere to the place. TVs throughout the place with all sorts of Irish kitsch on the walls. Service was a bit slow despite the bar being slow. While this place has the most taps in Sydney, they are mainly dominated by Macros with only a few local micros on. Did not try the food on my visit. Prices seemed a touch steep.“

“A two level pub in a large old colonial home. Upstairs area is more of a bar while the downstairs is more of a restaurant. History adorns the walls. Service was good and they basically made a spot for us to sit. A nice selection of Nova Scotian taps with a macro or two as well. Food was quite good and the prices weren’t too bad. Not much going on in Sydney overall but at least this place is here.“

“Popped in a few times when I was back home. They’ve got a lovely little tasting room up front and a very large brewhouse in back. Growlers filled and you can have a pint in the brewery. Nice little space and a welcome addition to the Cape Breton scene. I’ll be here every time I’m visiting my in-laws close by.“

“I think this is the only pub with a decent beer selection in Sydney, and that is just big spruce products and Garrisons. The food is good if a bit pricy.“

“This is more of an observation of Sydney than Governors Pub, but why visit? I’m originally from Michigan, and this town permeates desperation like Flint. Really sad town. Governors is the only thing to do in the area. Seriously. Nice enough place with a respectable tap list, but you won’t want to stay long unless you have to.“

“Lovely building overlooking Sydney harbour. Great interior décor. Layout in a more restaurant style. I would like to see a couple of leather seats by the fireplace to sit, read and have a beer. The pub has a good British feel. Beer selection is very limited. Stella, Guinness, the Keiths family and a selection of beer from Garrison. Decent food menu. The soup of the day is very good, served with a large home made scone. Friendly service and the best value in town. If your going to go out and have a beer in Sydney. This is the place to go.“

“Went to the Governor’s Pub and Eatery during a recent trip to Sydney. The pub is located on the main street that runs alongside the ocean. The pub is in an old house with a restaurant downstairs and a bar upstairs. Outside patios both up and down stairs. I didn’t eat the food, but it appeared to be upscale pub food. The on-tap beer selection included Guinness and several beers from Alexander Keith. The beer selection was mainly Irish and local Canadian in origin. There was live music, with an Irish fiddle and keyboard player.“
