We had a very nice dinner at this pub and will visit it again when we return. The food was very good and the prices reasonable as well. It is a pub so the noise level at peak times is a little loud!

Popped in for a quick bite to eat and the place was very busy with good, fun entertainment! The pizza was delicious and they have a good selection of local draft beers. Undoubtedly a popular place with the locals.

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.
