About Us

Owners Jennifer Delorey and Dean Mrkic at the Oaken Barrel Public house in greenwood

Family Owned and Operated

The Oaken Barrel Public house in Greenwood, Nova Scotia. We are proud to be locally owned and operated. As a traditional East Coast pub we focus on pairing fresh local menu items, with the friendly hospitality Maritimer's are known for.  

Where did we get the name...

Greenwood is a town steeped in traditions. Choosing a name to represent our community was important. Oaken Barrels are a tool used for oak aging involved in everything from distilling spirits and wines, to our delicious craft brews. 

These traditions are something all Nova Scotians are proud of.
