We were looking for drinks and dancing with an older crowd over 30 and we found it here. Live band and no cover charge. Wonderful atmosphere, old style English Pub! Great service and the appy's were good. We want to come back for dinner sometime soon, varied menu.

This is place to go for a large group meal, live rock n roll, or a quiet family meal (they have tables in the back where kids are allowed).

I was leading a course in downtown Victoria with my team, and contacted the manager of the pub with very specific requests for our lunch break. My requests were last-minute, short notice, and required extra care - and the team at Bartholomew's met all of our needs not... More

Stopped off to have a glass of wine and lucky for us it was Happy Hour! The young man who served us, Connor, was very friendly and happy to help with information regarding a good seafood place. Best of all was the Nachos - never ever have I had such crunchy and awesome Nachos. A single plate was more than... More

Description
Located on the Arcade level of the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel & Suites Victoria, Bartholomew's has been a favourite spot for both locals and visitors alike since 1975. We offer a casual relaxed atmosphere, in an English-style setting, as well as a beautiful outdoor patio (seasonal). Bartholomew's is proud to support our local craft beer industry and offers beer on tap from all the major Victoria breweries. We are also famous for our signature double seafood Caesar, which is considered, by many, to be the best in Victoria. Our menu is extensive, offering classic pub fare and families are welcome. Enjoy live entertainment every Friday & Saturday from 9 pm, as we showcase some of Victoria's finest talent, no cover charge. Every Saturday, from June through September we offer a patio barbeque from 6 pm, weather permitting. The menu features a selection of summer favourites, and rotates weekly.
