I love this place. It was an accidental find, the first time we came, after a friend relocated her B&B just down the road. The food is great, atmosphere terrific and there's plenty of charm to satisfy the classic pub loving crowd. I'm British, so I'm one of them!
Of course, I have to come back each time I'm on the Island, it's worth driving out from Victoria. Doesn't take very long either, 1/2 hour at the most, if you know where you're going.
Our meal was satisfying, and we'd like to have stayed longer, but the crowd was revving up for music bingo, and we had to be toddling along. However, it's on our radar and we do want to return.

Have been a weekly regular for a couple of years. For the past month plus, food and service has been going steadily down hill. Most recent visit, deep fried items indicated that perhaps the frying medium was overdue for a change. Pricing has changed; daily menu items are less creative, and mostly with a "spice" component; food presentation has shown less care, and staff level appears to be cut back. Very sad to see. This has been the go-to place, especially when we have out-of-town visitors. We'll try once more, hoping these changes are temporary due to kitchen staffing issues. Otherwise, on to the alternatives.

but with cooking on par with a multi-star destination restaurant. Don't miss the soup of the day, cream of chicken with pineapple, lemon and hot pepper. That was definitely a 5 star soup.

warm, homey feeling, with good fish + chips and good burgers. The pub sits as a landmark on the way into Sooke...very near the Moonlit Cove B + B. I would go back to this pub to warm up on a cold night.
