This review applies to the main dining area. After 20 years of sporadic patronage, I am nostalgic for the old Longwood. What's gone is the wood burning fireplace and the ferns that used to drape from the ceiling beams, the great flower pots perched above the dining area, and in the summertime, the fragrant hanging baskets of flowers on the...

Went to Longwood tonight with friends. Our server was one of the better we have had in a long time. We were seated behind the fireplace. Our server reccomended a few choices and overall knowledgeable and appeared to really enjoy his job, which is nice to see. All of us really enjoyed our meals. Great beer and awesome Nanaimo Bar...

I have been to the longwood many times and I've never been disappointed. The service is always excellent, their beer is always excellent and the food is good. They do a great job of the fish and chips

Cannot comment on the other dishes, but the Halibut fish and chips are fabulous. Cannot get this in Denver (or the US in general as everyone seems only to offer cod in their fish and chips) so I order it every time I visit family in Nanaimo. Always very good, nice service, good beer. FYI they also have excellent Yorkshire... More

O large, very nicely appointed brew pub, the Longwood met my expectations. The table service was excellent, the food great, and the selection of beers was just what I needed. I ordered the two-piece halibut and chips, plus a taster tray of four of their beers. The beers were all good, but I particularly enjoyed the IPA. I will definitely... More

The service was great but the food was very average. The crab cakes were frozen from sisco (pre-made good supplier) and the 'seafood' chowder was more of a potato and carrot chowder. I was surprised because the place was packed. Maybe my expectations were too high. It seemed that they chose to have a menu like every other restaurant In... More

First time here and would give it another try as we weren't as impressed as some of the other reviewers. The menu is interesting - where would you find roast beef sliders on tiny Yorkshire puddings? We loved them! The pasta dishes we ordered were just ordinary, no flavor explosions here. We did like that you could taste test the... More
