As you might expect the food was typical pub food. Nothing fancy and the fries were a frozen product but the burger and wings were serviceable. There is better food elsewhere but this will do in a pinch. Their daily specials are well-priced so consider going for one of these items. Service was cheerful and friendly despite being very busy.

Nice spot, this is an interesting old spot. Amazing location, some colourful locals at the bar heckling the TV provided us entertainment while we were here. Nice spot for a drink.

If you are passing this place...stop for the fish and chips. It is really good. They have a special every week and the food is usually pretty good, the price is good, and the staff is great. I always have the fish and chips.

After going on a tour with our car club, a bunch of us stopped off here for lunch. Since there were so many of us, they gave us the back room. Considering the number of us that were there, the food was served promptly and was hot and tasty.

We have stayed here a number of times. It is very close to the Victoria Airport and Butchart Gardens. Morning breaky is great and we love the antique items throughout the hotel.
