History of Schofields

Founders Michael Haywood and David Newton selected a location where the past and present could create a welcoming atmosphere.   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 Schofields name is an acknowledgement of this past.

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.

At Schofields you will find a series of historic photos of Port Dover purchased from the Knechtel family collection and display on our walls. The photos, taken in the 1920s and 1940s, have been restored and colour-enhanced, bringing the past into our present.  We feature leading local artist's works on our walls and plan to host musical artists from the community.

We continue to plan partnerships and new offerings in future.  Large group parties for special events.  Located steps away from the Lighthouse Theatre offers an opportunity for a truly complete Port Dover experience.
