Our experienced team includes Michael's extensive culinary experience includes Hemmings Broken Plate in Port Dover.  Chef Marcus Myerscough joined in Spring 2013, returning to Port Dover, having spent the last10 years in the culinary scene in Golden, B.C. 

The Schofield Brother’s erected the building in the 1850s and operated a grocery store until the 1920s.  Located on Main Street and across from Powell Park the building has been the heart of commerce and village life, with a colourful history and host to a variety of different businesses.  
 The Schofields name is an acknowledgement of this past.
