We stayed at the Doubletree for 5 nights and had dinner twice at Bart's Pub on the lower level. The servers were friendly and the food was good. It's a popular place.

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.
