In the Spotlight // Lord Amherst Public House

Lord Amherst Public House is named after Lord Jeffrey Amherst who served as the first Governor General of British North America and was commanding general of the British forces in North America that defeated the French to acquire Canada for England. Amherstburg also owes its name to Lord Jeffrey.

Our Pub is housed at 273 Dalhousie Street, the building dating back almost 200 years. Over these years, the building has served as a Pharmacy, General Store, Soda Shop, China Shop, Furniture store, and now Lord Amherst. Located on the corner of Murray and Dalhousie Street, this building once marked the centre of town and was the place to go to run into friends and neighbours and to get the scoop on what was going on. From Soldiers to Sailors to Rum Runners, this building has seen it all. And we continue the great tradition of this building by bringing locals and travelers together for food and drink and to get the scoop on what’s going on.

Lord Amherst is a cozy traditional pub located on historic Dalhousie Street in downtown Amherstburg. Situated across from the Navy Yard Park, this rustic locale is the place to meet old friends for lively conversations over food and drink. We provide fresh, local traditional pub fare and a top shelf beer and drink selection. **New…upstairs is opening soon!

Hours Monday-Sunday 11:30 am – close.

In the Spotlight // I Dare Your Hair

Born of a dream to one day own and operate her own unique salon, Tamara Moore set out on a mission to create just that. Upon finding a jewel of vacated space in the beautiful historical downtown Amherstburg, Ms. Moore set out to transform 60 Murray St. into a vintage-inspired salon that not only transforms the look of her clients, but takes those clients, if only briefly, on a journey to a place and time of years gone by. The vintage decor of re-purposed furnishings, from seating to hairdryers, is a tribute, not only to the historical site of, “I Dare Your Hair” but it also pays homage to a young woman with an old soul and a dream, and proves that with heart, dedication and a lot of hard work, dreams can come true.
