Drove from Sooke to Port Renfrew and ended up here to have lunch. Was full when we arrived as it was pouring rain outside and looked like we weren't the only ones out for a drive. Ordered the Fish and Chips. Nice sized pieces, and...More

Since we are staying at the Seaside Cottages it made sense to just saunter down the wharf to the Port Renfrew Pub for our dinner. We were pleasantly surprised at the open modern feel of the interior of the Pub. There is some interesting art...More

This pub is the only place to eat, without driving, if you are staying at Wild Renfrew but it serves good food and the staff are friendly.

First off this place is pretty much in the middle of nowhere. That being said it was packed and then we showed up. 31 motorcycles (Spyders), some with passengers and no reservations. Not a problem for them. They just put us where ever there was...More

A nice place for either pub or restaurant food in a great location overlooking the ocean. We went to the pub which is awesome, the only negative was the burgers were overcooked.

Visited here two years ago. Carbon copy visit. Fantastic fish ‘n chips, great service, fun atmosphere. Right on the pier so a walk after a meal is a must do. You won’t regret the choice to go.

Seems a place full of locals and some tourists as well. The patio has a beautiful view. The menu is decent and the food was pretty good. I'd go back (well, not many options yet in PR!). Free pool table a bonus.

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.

Description
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.
