Good food for the money!

I stayed in Quesnel for two weeks for work and had Begbie's every other day. The food was always good, and there were plenty of good options to choose from. The staff was nice and service was great!

The pub ran a karaoke competiton in March/April 2015. There were 3 judges...the pub manager and a married couple. The contest was poorly run and locals were all that mattered. I have lived in Quesnel for a year and made my first outing to enter the contest. I was not considered a local and was shown so. The food was... More

We stopped in one evening with our three children. Service was immediate and constant, although not annoying. Food was average to good. Portion sizes were good, and other than the fries, most of the food tasted homemade. Menu has many choices, and over the years I've tried most of it. It's all pretty good. Soups are usually homemade, and are... More

Stopped in for a work lunch. The waitres was incapable/uninterested in dealing with the modest amount of customers. At no time was I offered a coffee refill. The burger was dripping grease and the fries were overcooked in old oil. At least it was cheap. So if you are on tight budget and don't care about taste this is the... More

We ordered the calamari (which was way overcooked and cold) and the stuffed mushrooms (which were undercooked). After being served our appies the server did not bring us cutlery or plates. Our waters were not filled and we were never asked if we would like another drink. Finally our dinner came and my seafood tai dish was overcooked and tasteless.... More
