Unusual setting amid a dockyard environment. Great hearty pub grub and a grand selection of ales. Wonderful views and handy for lunch.

The patio was a long weekend’s dream. I needed a cool refreshing drink after a bike ride to North Vancouver pier. Tap & Barrel has been strategic in securing waterfront locations. This one in particular has a warehouse of space, and there were no issues...More
