Had the bangers and mash, the bangers were salty, the mash, blah, and the yorkshire pudding was adequate. Gravy had way too much mustard seed, so it also detracted from the overall enjoyment of the meal. Wife had salmon and chips. Fish over done to being dry and chips were ok. They did have a good selection of beers and... More

We had lunch here last week. Fish & chips (salmon) was good. The restaurant is busy but we went late so seating wasn't a problem. Service was good. (We had a window table directly in line with the front door and it was chilly despite the heating vent nearby. )

They've recovered very nicely from recent fire. Was here with family over holidays, food was great, staff outstanding, especially with youngest members of our troupe at breakfast. View can't be beat either. We could here the sounds of construction repair work upstairs in the pub, but that will be short lived and we considered it 'positive' noise.

When I traveled to Victoria for 4 days on business in November of 2016, I was very excited to try Spinnakers. I had heard positive reviews and as a minor beer aficionado, I was eager to head to this Brewpub. While the atmosphere is nice, it is not spectacular. Service was below average, slow, forgetful and inattentive. Beer was ok,... More

We went for lunch. The decor was a bit rustic and the tables close together (so it was a little loud) but the service and food were good. The other people tried flights of Spinnakers beer, which they liked. I tried a selection of house ciders. They were very old-world and "scrumpy"-ish, so I didn't love them. The bangers and... More

It's hard to believe that after a significant fire in the dining area, they are up and running (to a degree), serving their amazing beers, cider and food. Temporarily (we heard they'll be completely back to normal by the end of January) they are space limited, and are offering a scaled down menu that eschews anything deep fried or coming... More

Love the location of this pub, right down the street from my clinic. Placed right at water's edge the views are enticing. I just had the soup special for lunch and though not spectacular it was pretty good, a little under seasoned and overpowered with ginger. I didn't have any of the local brews this time, but I have had... More
