On a sunny, warm day the outside tables are unbeatable. The yard is beautifully manicured, with tall trees all around. Very peaceful and relaxing. Inside, the pub looks like an authentic old English pub with rustic seating and low ceilings. The food menu is limited...More

Beautiful little pub tucked away on Vancouver Island. Friends informed us of the venue and it mostly lived up to our expectations. Cute fireplace, decent food, and a half decent selection of beers. Not a fan of having to stand and wait to order food...More

Beautiful venue and an enticing English pub adventure always awaits us here. Order ahead if you want the steak and kidney pie, or step inside, grab a few drinks at the bar and decided between yummy chowders, Pan fried oysters, burgers, traditional pub fare, and...More
