Busy in off season with locals. Decent food, not overpriced, and the place was clean, quick, and cozy.

After wandering the highway and trails up the coast we were pleasantly surprised to find the Renfrew Pub. We enjoyed the view and the quiet of the backroom while eating our tasty lunch. Make sure To checkout Botany Beach tide pools

We did enjoy our meals here and luckily, we were moved to backroom seating where the blaring music was cut down to half the volume compared to the bar/dining room. But service felt a little slower because we were in the back room and we...More

The place to go after finishing the West Coast Trail or driving the Wet Coast Highway. Nice selection of craft beer and a decent menu. Seafood Chowder is a signature dish and Wife said the Prawn Tacos were “the best that she had ever had”....More

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.

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: Vancouver Island Brewery High Trail Honey Ale, Lighthouse Race Rocks, Saltspring Island Golden Ale, Phillips Blue Buck, Granville Island Raspberry Ale. And we’re just getting started. Our food is all about quality with a fresh, homespun focus. Chickens are roasted daily on site; sauces and gravies are built from scratch. The baked goods are handcrafted, fries hand-cut, and herbs pulled fresh. Choose from sumptuous burgers or boat-to-table seafood drawn from nearby waters. The Pub serves breakfast (weekends), lunch and dinner, along with elevated pub fare — wings for the game and gooey poutine. Snuggle up or wake up with a steaming mug of Discovery Coffee from Victoria’s beloved roastery, and let the day unspool.
