Greetings White Gate Friends!!

The staff at White Gate are so excited about the upcoming 2019 season!! We have a great new chef in the kitchen and we look forward to sharing more information about him and the fantastic team he has put together this year, as the season progresses!!

We open this coming Friday, May 17th and per usual will be open only weekends to begin with, then as the weather warms up we will expand our opening hours.w.whitegate.ca

We have been busy over the winter planning all sorts of great programs and promotions for this year…for example we will be adding Happy Hour – or as Sherry has decided to call it ‘White Gate Social Hour’ – so we will be opening earlier and offering a ‘Buy One Drink get the Second Drink ½ Price’ deal, as well as offering a Bar Snacks menu. More details as we get closer to launch.

We have a couple of great competitions on the horizon, offering chances for a free dinner or a drink ‘On the House’, so again, stay tuned for deets to come!!

We now have heaters on the deck, so we can keep you cozy there if the weather does not cooperate.

We look forward to welcoming you back to White Gate, and we have room still for this coming opening weekend, so come on in!! The menu has been posted on Facebook, Instagram and is available for download from the website.

Thank you lovely White Gate patrons for your continued support and looking forward to a fantastic summer here in Chester on the gorgeous South Shore of Nova Scotia!!
