On a recent trip to Victoria, I meet up with friends at Garrick's Head Pub. We had a few drinks and ordered some food. We all enjoyed our meals. Staff was friendly and efficient.

Stopped by the Garrick's Head late to grab a beer. The bartender was very knowledgable and helpful with the numerous beers on tap. Not sure how many beers they have but must be near 75. She answered my questions and then served me exactly what I was looking for

Great pub w an amazing assortment of beer! The waitress was quite knowledgeable and friendly. Chips and salsa and beer, lovely afternoon break from shopping. The food that was being delivered around us looked quite delicious.

I have been visiting The Garrick`s Head since 2004 or 2006 when I first tasted the Poutine here. Absolutely perfect. Over the Years the Bar area has been enlarged and, although worried this might have meant other changes, I am happy to say that the quality of food has remained as good as ever. I visit Vancouver and Victoria most... More

If you come to Bath and are not looking for the regular tourists happy meal you will like it. While you enjoy a good beer you may have the best roast in town. Sundays only. I got to share one with my wife and it was great. Ice cream was good too. The price is a little high for other... More

We've been a couple of times and sampled a few of the many beers on tap, the barman gave us recommendations of beers to match our tastes and was friendly.

One of our favorite things to do in Victoria for a day, is to take a pub walk. Throughout the course of a long weekend, we'll have both lunch and dinner, plus a few pints, as we visit every pub in the city. Garrick's Head is one of the memorable pubs we have found, and one that we visit each... More

This pub was attached to our hotel so easy to get to but, based on the food, would choose it anyway. I ate mussels in a coconut sauce with salted french fries. The sauce was like a red thai curry and was absolutely delicious so would actually have gone better with Thai rice rather than chips. Really delicious. My husband... More

We went for dinner. The selection of local craft beers is amazing. The front room was a bit noisy, as it was crowded while we were there. There are TVs as well. The beers were awesome, and the food mixed. My husband's entree was quite good (fish and chips) and mine not so much (some sort of week night special... More
