The WiFi is free, the beer options are numerous and the food is average. The charm is the decor which is very nice since the remodel/clean-up from a few years ago. Fair prices for the food and drink and if you don't need a 3...More

They had a singer that sounded like Frank Sinatra ..... shortly after we sat down, his session ended, but he was quite good. The food was nice, very plentiful servings. Tried a new beer, always fun to do that.

Food and service were excellent. Could have used the dj to be a little more contained to his area. Speakers were so loud was hard to talk anywhere inside. Check the calender if you want it quiet. STill a fun place

This is a nice pub- just slightly off the beaten track. Most of the customers seem to be locals and it is a bit of an older crowd. There is usually live music and if not, the play list is great. There's lots of seating...More

Victoria has a plethora of restaurants and finding a good one can be a challenge. We lucked out at Bartholomew’s. The inside part of the pub can be loud, but the outside patio is just wonderful. The heaters provided plenty of heat and we enjoyed...More

I have to say that we probably spent too much time here, but the place had it all, great food, grog, service and ambiance. Would definitely recommend a charcuterie and a flight of beers, what a great lunch.

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 9:30 pm, and Sunday's from 4:30 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.
