Community Herald: Neighbourhood pub

herald pictHammonds Plains residents have long discussed the idea of a neighborhood pub; a place to meet friends and share a pint and a conversation, without having to travel to Bedford or Tantallon.

When news spread that local entrepreneur Ed Webber was expanding his successful restaurant, bakery and take-out, Edible Matters, to include an upstairs pub, many residents said it couldn’t come too soon.

But locals will have to wait a little longer for that pub, about six to nine months longer.  Find out why in the Community Herald.

“When HRM created the planning strategy for Hammonds Plains many years ago, it was a pure bedroom community… really single family with some commercial and convenience stores, but nobody envisioned a neighborhood pub… What we’re trying to do now is catch up and the pub is just a natural evolution,” says Kevin Riles, president and CEO of KWR Approvals.
