Split Crow Pub

Split Crow Pub is a Pub / Bar located in Halifax. On July 17th, 1749, Governor Cornwallis granted a license to sell Beer and Liquor to a Mr. John Shippey. This was the first liquor license to be issued in New Scotland, (now Nova Scotia).

John Shippey named his tavern The Spread Eagle as its sign was taken from the German coat of arms, The Double Eagle.

Shortly after opening, the tavern became affectionately known as The Split Crow.

More than 250 years later, although in a different location, The Split Crow, continues to serve mariners and travelers from around the world and nearby. A welcoming smile, hearty platters of food, generous mugs of grog and, of course, great music . . the tradition continues.
