Location and contact

Timber is Chef Chris Whittaker's second West End Restaurant. Timber pays tribute to British Columbia's rich timber history and the tough people who built this 'True North Strong & Free', one two-by-four at a time. The menu reads like a roadmap of Canadian comfort food. Watch for daily features such as tourtiere, fish & chips and classic butter tarts. Looking for a place to grab a craft beer and a mushroom gravy poutine while you curse the hockey refs on TV? This is the joint for you.

I came here for brunch & ordered the duck confit hash. I wish I could say better things about this dish, but it was dry & was pretty lacking in the flavour department. The portion was not what I would have expected for that price....More

Good quality food and service. Next door to Forage so a good alternative if you want something more simple. Try the bison burger as it about the best I have every had in a restaurant.

Wow! Surprise visit at this unknown location while on vacation. Showed up at 3pm for happy hour half price appetizers and probably one of the best burgers I’ve ever had! A definite must.

This restaurant specialises in Canadian food. We had very tasty poutine and craft lager and a lovely blackberry maguertta. Busy atmosphere and efficient service. Nice beaver in the window!

Came here for brunch and the food is nothing special. The service was also very unpersonalized. Not a very memorable experience. I guess this place is best just for grabbing a pint of beer and watch sports. This is too bad because the location is...More
