Best burger husband has had, fish and chips good, arugula salad had great dressing, chips were good, crunchy slaw good. Newly redecorated, but for me the music was very loud it was very loud with people and hard even in the back room.

Stopped by for late lunch after wondering around botanical beach. Holiday weekend so seemed busy and understaffed. Service was friendly but on the slow side due to busyness. Wings and a salad. Pretty fair. Nothing spectacular. Nice view. Good fries. Can't get much closer to...More

We've been to the Renfrew pub many times but this was the first visit where the food was just not up to standards. We came for an early lunch which was a good idea as once the clock hit noon, the place was packed. To...More

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.
