We had the wings to start, standard pub wings but tasty. we both had the fish and chips The batter was perfect, good size portion as well. We will return again.... More

After going on a tour with our car club, a bunch of us stopped off here for lunch. Since there were so many of us, they gave us the back room. Considering the number of us that were there, the food was served promptly and was hot and tasty.

We have stayed here a number of times. It is very close to the Victoria Airport and Butchart Gardens. Morning breaky is great and we love the antique items throughout the hotel.

The waddling Dog Pub, which is part of the Quality Inn,Saanichton can be a little intimidating on a game night, lotsa locals, lotsa noise and for many lotsa fun as welll! Bear in mind this pub goes back decades and whatever stripes it wears were established probably before you were in diapers. As to food- not a lot of imagination... More

A neighborhood Pub with good food and food choices. Friendly unrushed atmosphere close to the BC Ferries and a short drive to the City of Victoria. The pub is attached to The Quality Inn Hotel in Saanichton BC.

We dropped by this place for supper and we liked what we were served. They have a limited beer menu but the ones on the menu are pretty good. I had the Thai shrimps and they were delicious and plentiful. My wife had the pulled pork nachos and the small plate was huge. They were very good as I tasted... More
