About
The Renfrew Pub is the homey gathering place for locals and visitors at the heart of Snuggery Cove. Friendly and inviting, it’s the sort of place even first-timers swear they’ve been before. The waterfront pub and restaurant occupies an enviable spot, right next to the dock. Our craft brews include crisp, cold favourites from right around here: Category 12 Session IPA, Sooke Oceanside Brewery Renfrew Red Ale, Sooke Ocean Brewery Bonfire blonde ale, R&B Brewing "Dude Chilling" Pale Ale, R&B Brewing Vancouver Special IPA, Lucky Lager, Red Arrow Midnite Umber Ale, and more!

Port Renfrew is a good drive from anywhere really. That's what makes it great. After a lot of driving and a good (but usually wet) walk along the coast, a put like this is great. Bright, clean place with some nice, well made food options....More

It was more then to expect after driving through Port Renfrew, maybe it was a bit to "fancy" for a "dead end village" - but that made it a positive stay. The waitress was ute and "professional" canadian ;-)

A large group can be better served with complete plans between pub and tour directors. Also check out many great stopping points on road from Cowichan Lake to Port Renfrew

Yes! Our license allows for kids in all areas of the Pub until 10:00 pm, and we also have a "Restaurant" side that is quieter and family friendly at all hours.
